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.
Listen as Sobocinski and Campos share the inspiring story behind Table 301’s name, describe how Greenville has evolved into a melting pot of cultural influences and how the restaurant company’s loving attention to guests and staff is the secret to its longevity.
