FISHERS, IN, May 20, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Abul Rahman has been inducted into Marquis Who's Who publication. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as noteworthy position, accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
After immigrating to the United States from Bangladesh in 1990, with only $100 in his pocket, Rahman began working as a delivery boy at a deli owned by a wealthy entrepreneur. Upon learning that the deli owner was also an immigrant, Rahman became motivated to consider a career in the restaurant industry. After spending several years working as a kitchen helper, busboy, and waiter in various restaurants, Rahman eventually moved to Indiana and landed a job as a restaurant cook at Ambrosia Italian Restaurant in Carmel. His work ethic enabled him to climb his way to the position as Food and Beverage Manager at the prestigious Hawthorns Golf & Country Club in Fishers IN. During his ten-year reign at Hawthorns, Rahman became most inspired by the owner, Harold Garrison, who had a social, friendly, hardworking demeanor. Garrison became a mentor to Rahman and together they built a trusting friendship between each other. This bond provided the spark of hope that Rahman needed to realize that he too, could become a restaurant owner.
Rahman opened his first restaurant, Goodfellas Restaurant, in Carmel, and subsequently, became the owner of Infusion, an exquisite fine-dining spot in Geist. Not long after, he opened a second Goodfellas located in the Geist community where he still presides today, after fourteen years.
This Goodfellas Restaurant represents an Italian family-style eatery nestled in a booming lakeside community. In his current executive position, Rahman manages all aspects of restaurant operations including oversight of all employees, monitoring product inventory, maintaining relationships with vendors and service representatives. He also supervises cleaning and safe food-handling practices at the restaurant. He has built up a reputation for never being too busy for his customers and their satisfaction. He is known for coming up to everyone's table to ask how their dining experience is going. His motto is "Treat Everyone Like Family." Even his employees feel welcome as they are long-term, resulting in low turnover. Rahman has received numerous accolades in his career, including being featured in several articles published in Indianapolis Star, Nuvu Magazine and Geist Magazine.
Rahman has credited his success to hard work, outstanding customer service, and the never-ending support of his lovely wife, Nasima, and their two sons, Naqeeb and Nasif. He has passed the torch onto his sons helping them to appreciate attending college to earn jobs in the real world. As for the coming years, he is open to the idea of opening a future restaurant with a business partner and also venturing into prospective real estate investment deals.
What started as a young man coming to America with very little money in his pocket, yet a lot of perseverance in his heart, led to a moving transformation. What began with a friendship between this man and his mentor led to a spark where he was converted into something new—a self-made man. Rahman not only migrated to America to capture his career, but he also established his family in order to pass down his professional ideology to both of his sons. Rahman wakes up every morning proud to live the American dream, representing a powerful role model to all.
