“The greatest legacy one can pass on to one’s children and grandchildren is not in material things accumulated in one’s life, but rather a legacy of character and faith.” – Billy Graham

A true story of an immigrant who moved to a new country for opportunity and promise. More than seventy years later, the group he founded still thrives as a living testimony to his valiant efforts. Antoine Nehme was the very definition of a pioneer whose heritage is a unique historical account of the Middle East and a reflection of how much the world had at once changed, yet remained the same, since then. Experience a family business’ journey to modern success through the eyes of one of its investigative sons.

Mira A. Frem Frenn, Business Leader, Lebanon
