35-Year-Old Owns 2 IHOPs And Manages $225 Million Real Estate
A Liberian refugee, who now lives in New Jersey, recently shared her inspiring story of becoming a successful entrepreneur owning two restaurants after fleeing the bloody civil war in her country according to Atlanta Black Star:
In an Aug. 22 interview with New Jersey’s PIX 11 News, Adenah Bayoh tells reporters that she would have never dreamed of owning two International House of Pancakes restaurants after coming from Liberia. By the age of 27, the entrepreneur opened her first IHOP restaurant.
She went to high school in Newark, New Jersey and continued her education at Fairleigh Dickinson University.
After graduation, Bayoh began in banking. However, that was not her dream.
So the franchisee branched off into real estate.
Immediately, Bayoh began purchasing homes in Irvington, New Jersey as an investment strategy.
Her success in real estate catapulted her. Now, she has an empire — all before the age of 30. The mother of two has a diversified portfolio, including $225 million in urban redevelopment projects.
“My story could not be possible anywhere else except for America,” the entrepreneur states. “For someone to escape civil war, come here and be given the opportunity [to] start her own business, employ and rebuild [is amazing].”
