Born to a humble working family in Greece, Teo was raised in the family agriculture business.
Olives, oils, figs, pistachios.
For many years the family has exported its goods around the world, including here to America.
"I want to open shops in America" Teo's father says to him.
"I want you to go to America and make this happen" he adds.
There is more than one reason his father wishes him to come to America.
So to America he comes. Into "The city" to seek his fortune.
