Kanela

The Greek word for ‘Cinnamon’, Kanela is synonymous with Chicago’s best breakfast. Our little slice(s) of foodie heaven bring a local, organic, and flavorful approach to a Greek-inflected American breakfast + lunch menu. Stop in for a visit! We’ll show you how to do breakfast the right way.

HEALTHY. HAPPY. HUNGRY.

Virtus

At Virtus, we do things differently. Unlike traditional brokerage firms, we believe insurance is a strategic decision, not simply a cost. Our team is comprised of experts who have a broad perspective of risk and use insurance products to drive measurable returns, mitigate downside, and lead to overall operational improvement.

At Annoula Ventures we seek to invest in great companies. While we’ve focused on certain market segments, we are not exclusively limited to specific sectors or ownership duration. This broad investment mandate provides access to unique opportunities that are often overlooked or unavailable to others. Please contact us with investment opportunities. While our main goal is to invest in profitable, income-generating assets, we believe it’s our mission to invest in our community. Annoula Ventures believes in giving back. We also believe that in order to truly leave a legacy, one must reach back to help others. Annoula Ventures proudly donates 10% of all its profits to charity. Some of our favorite causes are: CARA, One Million Degrees, The Chicago Children’s Advocacy Center, CURE, The Chicago Public Library and many others. To learn more about these organizations and their missions, please click on their website or email us directly.
