While Guilherme Paulus was a young man, he was privileged to meet one of the powerful politicians in the country by then, Carlos Vicente Cerchiari. They talked for a relatively long period and mainly concentrated on doing business. The politician revealed that he actually wanted to begin a tourist agency near his living place, Santo Andre.
After a long discussion, Guilherme Paulus and Carlos Vicente Cerchiari agreed to work together. The agreement was that Paulus was to provide the groundwork as well as the initial efforts. On the other hand, the politician was to provide the money needed to make the project a reality. When it came to choosing a venue, Paulus thought of a place with lots of traffic, movement, and continuous flow of individuals. He actually chose a place near the gate of a movie theater. He knew very well that he would always get customers.
