Andy Nguyen co-founded the hottest ice cream shop chain on social media, Afters Ice Cream. With 14 new locations in Orange County (and many more by year end), Afters Ice Cream has been both an entrepreneurial and social media phenomenon with hundreds of people turning up for their recent store openings. And that’s only 1 of the 5 local restaurant chains Andy and his partners have started recently to spice up the OC dining and nightlife scenes!
But Andy’s journey to ice cream-filled donut success wasn’t easy… Like many entrepreneurs, Andy and school didn’t get along so well, and he was quickly bored with his first “real” jobs.
After a dozen+ year struggle including adventures in real estate, as a food truck owner, and Coachella VIP vendor, Andy has founded a clothing line, several food ventures, and a social media marketing agency, too. He has even started his own charity, Passion Chasers, to help OC kids like he used to be find their own entrepreneurial spark.
EVAN FOX – CEO, YEASTIE BOYS
Evan is the owner, founder and operator of Yeastie Boys. Growing up Jewish he was no stranger to bagels. As a direct descendant to Rueben Kulakofsky (Creator of the Rueben Sandwich), food was always a passion of his, but he wasn’t a chef or baker by trade. He got his start in the music industry as a music publicist for various agencies.
Originally from Phoenix AZ, he moved to NYC in 2010. He honed his skills as a marketer, and helped garner attention for artists through various outlets, such as, Rolling Stone, NME, Pitchfork, The Guardian, and Wall Street Journal. A musician himself, he moved to Los Angeles continuing public relations and making jingles for commercials and licensing out his music.
With his knack for networking and creating hype centered around people and brands he took his knowledge and a leap of faith, bringing a commodity he knows well to people in LA that needed it most. BAGELS.
