How Table 301's restaurants hit all the right notes in Greenville, S.C.

Founder Carl Sobocinski is joined by Chef Diego Campos to share how six unique concepts combined with heartfelt hospitality keep guests coming back.

Carl Sobocinski opened his first restaurant called Soby’s 26 years ago in Greenville, S.C., serving low-country cuisine along with a personalized brand of hospitality. More restaurants followed, and Sobocinski eventually formed Table 301 as the umbrella company that oversees them all. Now there are six unique concepts, all within a three-block radius in Greenville, plus a food truck, two event venues and a catering arm.

Diego Campos is executive chef at one of the six called CAMP, a modern American restaurant with a globally influenced menu that changes monthly. He started as a line cook and worked his way up—something that Table 301 strongly encourages. In fact, Sobocinski has created a special buyout program through which his chefs and managers can become restaurant owners.
