THE WORLD BELONGS TO THOSE WHO EXPLORE
Leonidas’ founder Leonidas George Kestekides was born on 18 July in Anatolia. At 18, this ambitious young Greek emigrates to the U.S. where he learns the confectioner trade. He eventually creates the world-renown brand that bears his first name; this marks the beginning of a life destined for greatness.
