Corporate Roundtable: Wednesday, April 25, 2018

Corporate Roundtable  Speaker: Eric Fung, Owner, and Operator of United Noodles

JASM are very pleased to welcome Eric Fung, the owner of United Noodles, to serve as the speaker for JASM business series event, the Corporate Roundtable on Wednesday, April 25th. Mr. Fung will speak on the topic of  “The Perils of Orientalism: How Genuine Authenticity Will Increase Multicultural Understanding and Positively Affect a Business’ Bottom Line.” With his extensive knowledge of Japanese culture, Mr. Fung will share how this concept has impacted his dealings with Japanese suppliers.

Eric Fung is the owner and operator of United Noodles, a pan-Asian supermarket and restaurant tucked away in the Seward neighborhood of Minneapolis. Mr. Fung was raised in the Twin Cities area, as well as Hong Kong and Shanghai, China. He received his B.S. from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Services and law degree from University of Maryland. Mr. Fung worked for the U.S. House of Representatives, the Center for Strategic and International Studies, as well as practiced mergers and acquisitions and energy regulatory law as an associate at Dickstein Shapiro LLP.

In 2011, Mr. Fung returned to Minnesota to purchase United Noodles from its founder, a retiring family friend. Since he took the helm, United Noodles has been recognized in countless local and national publications and shows, including City Pages’ “Best International Grocery” and other awards three times, The Daily Meal’s “Best Ramen Shops in America,” USA Today’s “Ramen in Every State,” and the Food Network’s “Diners Drive-Ins and Dives.” Mr. Fung was also recognized as one of the Twin Cities’ “40 Under 40” by the Minneapolis St. Paul Business Journal in 2015.
As a second-generation Chinese-American and native Minnesotan, Mr. Fung understands the opportunities and perils of Asian-American businesses, as well as its potential significant impact on Minnesota’s overall economic growth.

The event will be held at the office of DORSEY  &  WHITNEY  LLP in downtown Minneapolis. (Google Map)
