Minnie Nguyen is the founder of the Firehouse Crawfish restaurant as well as Station 16, Station 8, and Station 38. She came from humble beginnings never having the things she wanted as a child, but only what she needed (2:20). It was those days working in the kitchen with her mother when she realized her passion for food.
After working in Casinos throughout college, Minnie's boyfriend (now husband) decided to use $30,000 of his savings from working as a firefighter towards starting their first restaurant Firehouse Crawfish (5:00). Years later, the Station concept was born (9:30). Minnie sheds light on the struggles throughout each restaurant and why she continues to push through and follow her dreams.
