Johnny Nguyen, a Vietnamese immigrant who left his home country during the Vietnam War, has built a successful business in the United States. After leaving his homeland, he and his brother boarded a boat and lived in an immigrant camp in Malaysia for several years before eventually making their way to America.
Initially, Nguyen pursued higher education and took on odd jobs in sewing and printing. However, he eventually started his own print business from his garage, creating business cards and brochures for local businesses. Eventually, he transitioned into the construction industry and established DVR Cabinetry.
DVR Cabinetry is now based in Northeast Philadelphia and specializes in assembling cabinets and countertops. The company employs around 25 people, with Nguyen hoping to hire at least 50 more as the business continues to grow.
Nguyen sees himself as an example of the American dream and aims to inspire others to work hard towards their goals. He believes that America is a place where everyone can find opportunity and achieve their dreams. To learn more about DVR Cabinetry, visit their website.
