HISTORY OF THE COMPANY

The five principals of Vision Investment Partners are all the sons of Chaldean Iraqi parents who migrated to this country between 1945 and 1965 to pursue freedom, opportunity and better lives for their families. Each cut his teeth in their fathers’ grocery and convenience retail businesses learning at young ages the values of a strong work ethic, responsibility, and care for customers and employees. Each witnessed first-hand the struggles and aspirations of their entrepreneurial families. Each came to believe in the unrelenting promise of the American dream for himself and others and in the core principle that good businesses are instrumental for strong families and thriving communities.

With that history in mind, the principles of Vision Investment Partners set out on their entrepreneurial paths that led to the development of several Fuddruckers restaurants, 7-11 stores and numerous real estate projects. Their combined 150 years in business includes the opening of a de novo bank in 2005 as well as the growth of their wireless company from five stores to over 260 in ten years. Their collective set of experiences has now led to the creation of Vision Investment Partners.
