With a family recipe, a can and a dream, Michael Houllis developed a company that has the potential to span many generations to come.
The business started out more as an experiment than anything. But Houllis' recipe for Greek chicken soup was too delicious to avoid demand.
Houllis is no stranger to the food industry or to Tarpon Springs.
His grandparents made their way to Tarpon from the Dodecanese Islands of Greece in 1915. Houllis' father, Manuel Houllis, retrieved the Epiphany cross in 1943.
"I'm born and raised Tarpon Springs," Houllis said.
Manuel Houllis opened Island House Restaurant on Clearwater Beach, where the family ran it for 30 years.
