There are a lot of great things about Tampa, Florida. The weather is amazing, the beaches are beautiful, and the food is delicious. One of the most popular dishes in Tampa is the cheesesteak. And there’s one place that does them better than anyone else: Mikeeo’s Cheesesteaks!

Introduction To Mikeeo’s Cheesesteaks of Tampa

I am Mikeeo Smith, and I was born and raised in Philadelphia. I have been eating cheesesteaks since I was about five years old, so you could say I know a thing or two about making them properly. When the pandemic hit two years ago, I moved to Tampa Bay Area.

How Mikeeo’s Cheesesteaks First Got Started

It didn’t take me long to realize that the “cheesesteaks” on local menus were a disgrace to my hometown. That’s when I decided to go on a mission: bring more Philadelphians to the Tampa Bay Area so we could give the people authentic Philly Cheesesteaks from REAL Philadelphians.

I Am My Own Boss!

Every day, I wake up and face the most important task of my life: running my business. I have two businesses: a PlayMakers marketing company and Mikeeo’s Cheesesteaksof Tampa and Mikeoo Smith. My work day involves overseeing operations and getting things for expansion. It’s much work, but I love it. I get to be my boss, set my hours, and make my own decisions. And most importantly, I get to help other people succeed. I feel like I’m making a difference in the world, which motivates me to keep going.

How I Am Happy and Contended with My Life

I’m at my happiest when I’m surrounded by the people I love most. We could be doing anything — watching a comedy, sharing jokes, smoking cigars or just chilling by the poolside listening to music. It doesn’t matter what we’re doing, as long as we’re together. I treasure those moments because they’re when I feel most connected to the people who matter most to me. There’s nothing that can compare to the feeling of being with the people you love and being able to laugh and enjoy each other’s company. That’s what life is all about for me.
