The Hemingway Group
(“THG”) first invested in the United
States in 1983 through acquisition and management
of commercial and residential real estate in
California. At the height of its activity, THG
had more than 40 active real estate projects
in the state.
In 1984, THG became a significant
investor in the hospitality field by acquiring
and growing the Numero Uno chain of restaurants.
The Group’s restaurant company soon became
the largest California franchisee of Numero
Uno restaurants. THG’s Southern California
restaurant division also developed a number
of other restaurant concepts.
In the late 1980s The Group
invested in the chemical and cosmetics manufacturing
field and distribution. Today, THG continues
to actively acquire and manage real estate in
and around California. There are presently several
hospitality projects, specific to the Western
United States, under investment review.
