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.
Come to hear Andy's story from the inside, including how he uses social media like Instagram to appeal to young, trendy audiences to build his businesses and his goals of helping improve the local food scene and pumping up our "too mellow" OC night life, too. He'll share insights into modern branding, social media "influencer" marketing, and how to get your hustle on.
