Episode 03- Jon Scoggin, Mojo's East Coast Eats
This weeks podcast guest is Jon Scoggin, owner of Mojo’s East Coast Eats in Downers Grove, IL. Growing up in the Philadelphia area, Jon wanted to bring his hometown eats to the Chicagoland area. He quit his corporate job and went all in to open Mojo’s. After being opened for only one year, Mojo’s was voted Chicago’s Best Cheesesteak.
In this episode, Jon and I cover A LOT. We discuss the challenges of being a first time restaurant owner, learning as you go and trusting in yourself, testing third party delivery, the positives and negatives of yelp, and maybe the most important lesson: get comfortable with being uncomfortable.
