Joey Friedman is a Florida entrepreneur whose business ventures, most notably Invo Enterprises, Inc. and Tatu Sushi Lounge, LLC are as multi-faceted, successful, and dazzling as his personal life. Joey scuba dives for fun, has 2 kangaroos as pets, is a Certified Public Accountant, has a real estate license, as well as a pilot’s license, and has earned a Master’s Degree in Business Administration and another Master’s Degree in Accounting. Additionally, Joey has owned several restaurants, developed and operated 10+ companies, and in his spare time visited over 60 different countries around the world and almost every state in the US. Joey has acted in national TV commercials and been featured in over 20 newspaper and magazine articles.
Known for his extravagant wardrobe, Joey often dons designer jeans and one of his extensive collection of bright and exciting dress shirts. Joey knows that his clients expect excitement and fun with their Invo Enterprises and Tatu Sushi Lounge experience — so Joey meets their expectations, presenting a brand of himself that is both client friendly and genuine.
For Joey, a Miami native who grew up in Parkland, Florida, whatever he does, he does completely and without shortcuts. His personal life illustrates the point. As he says on his Facebook page, “when I’m out exploring the world, you’re likely to find me completely immersing myself and taking full advantage of all the local opportunities such as riding through the desert on a camel, scuba diving with sharks, climbing an active volcano, wading thru the rubble of vacant buildings in the nuclear wasteland of Chernobyl, swimming with stingrays, exploring the bottom of the Caribbean ocean in a submarine, landing on an iceberg with a helicopter, or zip-lining hundreds of feet over the Gamboa rainforest in Panama!”
Joey holds a Master’s Degree in International Business, Bachelor’s in Accounting, with minors in Economics and Criminology, and Graduate Certificate in New Venture Creation from the University of Florida. He holds a Master’s Degree in Accounting from Florida Atlantic University as well as a private pilot license, CPA license, and Florida Real Estate License. He is also NAUI advanced scuba certified.
Joey Friedman doesn’t just think outside the box, he fills the box, inside and out. “It makes no sense,” says Joey, “to try to be the second-place version of someone else rather than the first place version of yourself.” Joey Friedman gives everyone 100%, and it’s 100% Joey Friedman.
