Here at the Charleston Hospitality Group we are known for our outstanding restaurants accompanied by our delicious food. All six of our restaurants: Toast! All Day, Eli’s Table, HonkyTonk Saloon, Queology, and John King Grill and Piano Bar have been nothing but massive successes with diverse menus, entertainment and promotions that never disappoint. The brains behind Charleston Hospitality Group and all of our success is Founder and CEO Sam Mustafa. Sam started the company on his own with money he saved from working various jobs in the food industry, which instilled in him a lot of the core values that he works to educate his employees on. As the leader of Charleston Hospitality Group, Sam works to bring dedication, passion, and drive to his restaurant empire.
Part of Sam’s journey to success was when he decided to move from Kuwait, where he was born and raised, to America to attend Southern Illinois University- Carbondale. During his student career, Sam discovered that his calling was in the restaurant business. While working towards receiving his degree in engineering Sam also began his career learning every facet of the service industry. He knew at a young age that his career path was in Entrepreneurship in the hospitality industry.
Sam believes that education is one of the most important things in life and is the founder of the Sam Mustafa Charleston Scholarship Program. Sam is committed to ensuring that students are provided with the financial assistance they need to attend college. Sam Mustafa has made it a priority to use his platform to give back to his community. Improving access to post-secondary education, for both recent graduates and mature students, is an area that he strongly believes in. Higher education is a vital resource for developing new skills, relationships, and interests. Most importantly, it helps prepare students for a successful lifelong career that they are passionate about. During times of change in their professional careers, they can lean on the diverse skill set they developed throughout their education to adapt and persevere.
The goal of this scholarship program is to provide an opportunity for students to improve themselves further in their career development. As someone whose career began while he was at school, Sam believes that higher education is an opportunity that everyone should have. Not only does further education help young adults realize their career path early, it also builds skills the new generation of professional workers needs in order to be successful in their chosen career. Sam believes that everyone deserves to get an education. With support of his scholarship program, Sam will provide financial assistance to 10 individuals who are starting off their journey.
