Dallas, Texas-based Van’s Kitchen has established and plans to celebrate the first-ever National Egg Roll Day on Monday, June 10. This new “holiday” honors the company’s founding in June 1986.
Van’s Kitchen is a certified women-owned and -operated company that produces millions of egg rolls each year using only fresh, whole ingredients and making them in “artisan” batches.
“We are thrilled to establish this National Day in honor of our founders, my parents, Van and Kim Nguyen,” said Theresa Motter, CEO of Van’s Kitchen. “My parents’ passion for sharing authentic egg rolls has transformed into a legacy that truly captures the American Dream. We hope that people across the country will celebrate this day with delicious egg rolls.”
In honor of National Egg Roll Day, Van’s Kitchen will donate 90,000 egg rolls—equivalent to 45,000 servings—in June to a local branch of the Midwest Food Bank.
Van Nguyen came to the U.S. from Vietnam in the mid 1960s when the U.S. State Department brought him to Washington, D.C., as a teacher. Two years later, he was joined by his wife Kim and daughter Theresa.
“Van’s Kitchen’s success is attributed greatly to the strong foundation built by two young Vietnamese immigrants with a goal,” said Carl Motter, CSO of Van’s Kitchen. “National Egg Roll Day is a great way to celebrate our heritage and dedication to creating a product we love.”
Van’s Kitchen egg rolls are sold in more than 5,000 supermarkets and hundreds of convenience stores across the country in the refrigerated deli, freezer and hot deli sections.
Van’s Kitchen is the flagship brand of Van Oriental Food.
