E34 | Michael Kay Keshishian: Kitchen12000

The Founder Hour, Michael Kay Keshishian, Kitchen12000

For Episode 34, Pat & Posh sat down with Michael Kay Keshishian to learn about his upbringing as the son of immigrant parents, his sincere love for people, and the life-changing experience he had during a spontaneous trip to a reggae festival that sparked his passion for food and hospitality.

After graduating from culinary school, Michael launched a catering company called Kitchen12000, which quickly became a full-service event production firm after landing a gig (over Wolfgang Puck) to throw a corporate party for Yelp which exceeded everyone’s wildest expectations.

Michael talks about his thoughts on failure, how the past dictates the present and affects the future, stress and anxiety, and his formula for happiness.

If you enjoy deep conversations about life, its meaning, and everything in between, you’re going to love this episode!
