Restaurant Unstoppable with Eric Cacciatore

Mikey Sorboro Restaurant Unstoppable Podcast

With excitement, allow me to introduce to you today's guest, Owner of Mikey's Late Night Slice, Mikey Sorboro.

Mikey started his entrepreneurial journey with a pedicab service in Columbus, OH. His next entrepreneurial journey was Mikey's Late Night Slight, which started in a shipment container. Today, Mickey's portfolio includes 6 Late Night Slice locations, one LNS food truck, 2 LNS concert venues, and two Odd Fellows Liquor Bar. In this episode, we're picking up where we left off. It's been almost 4 years since I last spoke to Mikey, and we're finding out what's happened since. The focus of the conversation is knowing your lane and strengths and avoiding what you're not good at and passionate about. Mikey also gives me a little advice on my own vision.
