Coming from a Lao and Thai speaking family with Chinese heritage, he has studied and lived in Canberra since 2004, and has a strong 20+ year history in hospitality and retail. Anthony says he will maintain everything that the markets are, and will continue to focus on Australian made, hand crafted and premium products.
