Armenian-founded businesses thriving in the United States


Armenian immigrants have been an integral part of the United States' business landscape for over a century. From small, family-owned businesses to large corporations, Armenian Americans have made significant contributions to the U.S. economy. Many of these businesses are in the hospitality and food industry, such as bakeries, restaurants, and cafes. However, Armenians have also been successful in fields like technology, finance, and real estate.

One of the most prominent examples of a business founded by Armenians in the U.S. is the telecommunications company, Global TelLink. The company was founded in 1989 by two Armenian American entrepreneurs, Bobby Saghian and Slava Kavtaradze. Today, Global TelLink is a leading provider of inmate telecommunications services, serving over 2,000 correctional facilities across the country.

Other notable Armenian American businesses include the software company VMWare, founded by Diane Greene and Mendel Rosenblum, and the real estate investment firm Trizec Properties, founded by Peter Munk. Overall, Armenian Americans have made significant contributions to the U.S. economy, and their businesses continue to thrive and grow.
