Pauly D Jersey Shore: So, “Uncle Paul”, whats ya connection to the Mustache Mobile?
“Uncle Paul” Hauke: I’m connected to the Mustache Mobile through Tony Boloney’s Pizzeria, Oriental Ave., Atlantic City, NJ
Pauly D Jersey Shore: OK, got it. So how ya connected to the Tony Boloney’s Pizzeria?
“Uncle Paul” Hauke: In 2008 I co founded Tony Boloney’s Pizzeria. I designed the Pizzeria and supervised it’s construction. I did it all for free for my nephew. Prior to that it was a dilapidated and vacant building.
Paul D Jersey Shore: Is that your business?
“Uncle Paul” Hauke: My business is marketing. However, I have always had an interest in the building trades. I set up all the marketing for free also, with a major emphasis on branding the Tony Boloney’s name and menu items. I am the President of Iffpf Media LLC
Paul D Jersey Shore: Oh ya, I know Iffpf Media LLC. Didn’t you get wiped out in the storm Sandy on the Jersey Shore?
“Uncle Paul” Hauke: Yes , we did. We lost all of our computers, office equipment, furnishings, etc. However, we did back up all important information. The company has been put back together and we are embarking on a nationwide marketing campaign for our services, special events, and special marketing programs.
Paul D Jersey Shore: Are you still involved in the Tony Boloney’s Restaurant?
“Uncle Paul” Hauke: I have taught Michael Hauke a phenomenal amount about marketing, branding, and in particular internet marketing. He has done a good job with the marketing and branding and the Mustache Mobile is solely his idea.
Paul D Jersey Shore: We have heard that the recipe for the “Cheese Steak Ole” is yours, is that true?
“Uncle Paul” Hauke: It’s one of many recipes that I had and gave to Michael Hauke for Tony Boloney’s Pizzeria. Michael Hauke named it the “Cheese Steak Ole” and it is very popular.
Paul D Jersey Shore: The “Cheese Steak Ole” has won some competitions and lost some competitions, yes?
“Uncle Paul ” Hauke: When I was in the restaurant business I did not have a unique name for the cheese steak. When we were discussing the branding of the Tony Boloney’s Pizzeria and the items on the menu, we came up with the name “Cheese Steak Ole.” It did win the Guy Fieri Food Channel competition in Atlantic City , NJ one year and lost one year. White House Subs in Atlantic City beat it in a recent competition. But, the “Cheese Steak Ole” just won the Kelly and Michael show “Food Truck Competition.”
Paul D Jersey Shore: OK ya know that’s a big feather in your hat, right?
“Uncle Paul” Hauke: Yes I’m very proud of my cheese steak recipe. I’ve got to say I give Michael Hauke a lot of credit for marketing it as well as he has. I take greater pride that I was able to lend my expertise and contribute to the success of Tony Boloney’s Pizzeria , the Mustache Mobile , Michael Hauke, the “Cheese Steak Ole” and Atlantic City.
Paul D Jersey Shore: Do you feel positive vibes for Atlantic City, NJ.
“Uncle Paul” Hauke: I feel very positive for Atlantic City, NJ and see a lot of great things happening. There is a lot of competition in and out of Atlantic City, NJ , but I feel Atlantic City, NJ truly has the best on the East Coast.
Paul D Jersey Shore: Do you visit Atlantic City often?
“Uncle Paul” Hauke: Yes, myself and friends visit Atlantic City often.
Paul D Jersey Shore: OK , so when ya gonna hook up with me?
“Uncle Paul ” Hauke: Whenever you’re ready.
