Growing up in Cincinnati, Celek's parents, Steven and Debbie, shared the same spirit of ownership as they owned three hair salons and spas.
And while Celek might be an Ohio boy at heart, his entrepreneurial roots are in Philadelphia.
In 2013, Celek decided to open an American bistro-style restaurant called Prime Stache in Philadelphia with his long-time friend, chef Hee "Chino" Chang. That branched off into the Prime Stache food truck, which was designed for private event catering.
In February 2016, Chang and Celek signed a lease to turn the Bellevue on Broad Street in Philadelphia into a bar and restaurant that will serve small-plate Korean-inspired dishes.
The reason why Celek decided to take on living a life of designing his own success was to give himself the ability to make his own mistakes and learn from them.
"You screw up here, you screw up there, you learn from it. You move on, you get better and you make your own money," Celek said.
