A survivor of the Cambodian civil war and one-time friend of American presidents and senators, Ted Ngoy is a savvy businessman who changed the face of two countries and brought hope to his people. In his new memoir, The Donut King: The Rags to Riches Story of a Poor Immigrant Who Changed the World, Ngoy shares his fascinating rise and fall—not one, but three separate times.
Arriving from Southeast Asia to Southern California penniless with his wife and small children, Ngoy immediately set out to find a job, working at the church sponsoring his family’s stay and as a gas station attendant.
After a stint at Winchell’s, a donut shop across the street from the gas station, Ngoy became determined to open his own donut shop. Less than a decade later he owned dozens of them. Ngoy was a multimillionaire at the helm of an empire of independent donut shops, earning himself the title, “The Donut King.”
Then his unparalleled success came to a screeching halt. Plagued with an addiction to gambling, Ngoy’s ritual trips to Las Vegas left him penniless and homeless. However, his story is one of survival and steadfast spirit, fostering his tenacious fortitude as he navigated the seemingly cyclical road from poor to rich.
The Donut King is scheduled to be released nationwide May 2018
