Donuts USA

“Between 1975 and 1994 nearly 160,000 Cambodians were admitted to America as refugees. One of them was Ted Ngoy who became known as the ‘Donut King’. The entrepreneur made his fortune through a chain of stores. By the mid 90s, inspired by Mr Ngoy’s success there were as many as 2,400 Cambodian-owned donut shops in southern California.

Los Angeles has a reputation for healthy eating but that hasn’t slowed the steady stream of patrons at Blinkie’s. Blinkie’s is now one of the top-rated donut shops in Los Angeles.”

— “How donuts fuelled the American Dream,” David Samuels, 1843 Magazine
