Turkish Student Reaps Kebab Success

ImageFor success in business, one must have the guts to take risks and make opportunities. This is no exception for foreigners in Korea. Ali Karagozlu is one of the few non-Korean businessmen who felt he needed to test his business idea. If he hadn’t, he most likely would have regretted it for the rest of his life. At the young age of 20, the notion of running a Turkish restaurant in Korea began poking at Karagozlu’s mind. This was back in 2000. Needless to say, his entrepreneurial spirit ultimately led to the opening of his restaurant called “Pasha,” meaning “general” of the army, in 2001.

“I was in my second year of the business program at Seoul National University when I thought of opening up a Turkish restaurant,” Karagozlu said told The Korea Herald at the first Pasha branch located by the Gangnam Subway Station in Seoul.
The 30-year-old said a strong belief in his idea had prompted him to propose a business plan and its potential to his father, an established business man in Turkey. “My dad agreed to help me because he thought this experience could be useful to me as a lesson in life and because he also trusted me,” Karagozlu said.

Beautiful Emine posing, Trabzon, Turkey, 1965
TIME LightBox talks to Mary Ellen Mark as part of our series “The Photo That Made Me”, in which photographers tell us about the one photograph they made that they believe jump-started their career, garnered them international attention, or simply reflected their early interest in photography. In 1965, I was in Trabzon in eastern Turkey on a Fulbright scholarship. I would get up every morning and walk around the streets and look for photographs. One day, I came across this beautiful young girl, Emine. She was wearing a very babyish dress and a bow in her hair. I photographed her, and she invited me to come to her home.

What I Learned about Localization in Turkey

By Diarmuid Mallon - When visiting Turkey a couple years ago, I wanted to get off the beaten tourist track. So, I went up the Bosporus on the regular commuter ferry toward the Black Sea. I got almost all the way to the top, and had a wonderful lunch at a small town. To get back to Istanbul, I got on a local bus and paid the driver. Off we went. Within a few more stops, the bus was past standing room only. By the time we got to town, it was like a Guinness Book of Records contest for how many people could possibly pack onto the thing.
