If you’ve spent any time on Chengdu Living or Chengdu Places, you’ve probably run into some mention of Johnny 5 Donuts. Johnny opened his donut parlor just 3 months ago but through a combination of magnetic personality, savvy web presence, and delicious pastries, he has quickly become a Chengdu mainstay.
In this episode, we talk to Johnny about his business, the life he left in America, transitioning to life in Chengdu, and his aspirations in China that go way beyond just baking donuts.
There is a contest organized by Johnny 5 and three other Chengdu restaurants that is concluding on April 11. On that night, there will be a party during which the winners will be announced. For more information about the contest and the party, follow this link.
