Greg shares how working in the corporate world in the past motivated him into becoming his own boss. It was always instilled in him to hustle and make more money. In high school he had that entrepreneurial spirit by selling snacks on the side. He stated how he sold newspapers to even coffee, he did it all. He continued to strive and kept faith to become a prominent restaurant owner.
What makes his newest location so unique is that the New Orleans East is still affected from Hurricane Katrina from 2015. His new store is in an area that hasn’t fully been occupied since then.
