The History of WN Foods: Chapter 5

WN History 70s(WN Foods celebrating Miss Chinatown)

Dave Hall breathed new life into WN Foods in the 1970s. He split his time working as a pharmacist and getting to know the company. Naturally business-minded and determined to honor his father’s legacy, Dave picked up the ropes quickly; he was eager and had many new ideas for promoting and expanding WN Foods. He and John Young began connecting with more business owners, investing in co-packing equipment, and stayed involved with the Chinese-American community.
