Enter John Young, George Hall’s devoted business partner. This U.S. Army major and fellow family man also possessed a spirit of creativity and perseverance. He shared George Hall’s vision of growth and success for WN Foods. Together, they not only worked to grow the company, but also to support the Chinese-American community during its crucial turning point after the repeal of the Chinese Exclusion Act. Their hard work and support for this bustling community soon paid off. In 1946, WN Foods outgrew its old basement space, expanding to take up an entire building in Chinatown. Its manufacturing capabilities skyrocketed, and it could begin importing and exporting goods. It was just the beginning of WN Foods’ incredible legacy.
