The hospitality group, which has a unique business model, is worth Rs 75 crores today.
CGH today has various properties across peninsular India and is managing at least a dozen properties, including the much-coveted property called Bangaram Island in Lakshwadeep.
In part four of this mini-series on entrepreneurs from the southern states, we look at Jose Dominic, who gave up his dreams of becoming a charted accountant to head his family business.
