Rick Silva, President and CEO of Checkers and Rally's, will make another prime time television appearance on Epic Bosses.

Rick Silva, the CEO and president of Checkers and Rally's based in Tampa, is back on prime time television this week. Silva appears on Epic Bosses, a special episode of Undercover Boss featuring updates on the most compelling bosses and how their undercover experience affected them and their companies.

Silva was the focus of an Undercover Boss episode that aired in February 2012 showing Silva pretending to be a contestant on a reality show giving failed business owners a second chance. The episode gave Checkers a big publicity boost and went on to win an Emmy.

The follow-up episode will highlight some of the changes Checkers and Rally's implemented, including an employee incentives program and an advisory group made up of store managers. It airs from 8 to 9 p.m. Friday on CBS.

If you haven't seen the original episode, you can check it out on YouTube by searching Undercover Boss USA Checkers Complete Episode. It's an interesting look inside a fast-food restaurant and the lives — and challenges — of people earning minimum wage. Made me a lot more sympathetic to the workers cooking my burger and fries.
