Theo Holiasmenos is one of those success stories that started with a dream. The owner of TH restaurants, which today comprise the Karoo Cattle and Land, Smith and Kale Steak House, Kerasma and Ciao Baby Cucina franchises, he came from a wealthy family that lost their fortune and moved from Greece to South Africa. Even at the age of 17, he knew that wanted to go into business.
