The Owners of The Smoking Pie – brothers Michael J. LaBoy and Justin Laboy tell me hard work and thinking outside of the box is part of their secret to success. They also tell me they consider themselves blessed for all the continued successes throughout the years. Although we see one image of them on social media, what we don’t see is how they are believers in returning their blessings to others without the cameras turned on. The brothers who have been involved with giving back for years have never talked publicly or filmed their involvement in charity work. Michael J. tells me one cause close to his heart is The Children International which is a global nonprofit humanitarian organization that helps children break the cycle of poverty. The brothers tell me that in addition to franchising The Smoking Pie in the future they have been brainstorming creative and fun ways for The Smoking Pie to give back to the kids in their own way.
