Sobocinski was recognized at the National Restaurant Association Public Affairs Conference in Washington D.C. earlier this month. The 2023 Community Service Leadership Award was presented by American Express.

Sobocinski’s imprint on Greenville’s food and dining scene also has not gone unnoticed. With more than 10,000 community service hours and $3 million donated to local charities, plus fresh meals for low-income families through Mill Village Ministries, and more, according to the website of the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation.

“Carl shows what it means to be fully invested in the community where he and his restaurants operate,” said Kirk Madsen, client management director at American Express. “More than making Greenville a great place to live, work, and dine. He believes passionately in sharing his blessings and extending opportunity to everyone he comes across.”

Table 301 was founded in 1997 in Greenville beginning with Soby’s New South Cuisine and expanding the portfolio to a total of six restaurants, including CAMP Modern Eatery, Nose Dive and their newest establishment, Jones Oyster Co.
