2006

Household Name

In 2006, Turkuaz was not only published in print, but was also serving the community through its website. 

The website, published as a newsportal, helped Turkuaz quickly become a household name, and the success story inspired countless Turkish Expats to use the name for their own company, project or group.

Turkish expats, who in the world of business tend to suffer from an identity crisis abroad, felt safe with the name Turkuaz.

Today, many international Turkish companies, countless restaurants around the world and even a "Miss Turkuaz" beauty contest in Europe all share the name Turkuaz, although they are run by independent business owners.
