The Doughnut King of Southern California

Hosted by

Dunkin’ Donuts is an East Coast food chain that’s trying to establish itself in California.  Two previous efforts haves been held back by a network of independent doughnut stores in mini-malls all over the state.  They’re owned and operated by Cambodian immigrants — the successors of an enterprising character who’s won fortunes and lost them, named Ted Ngoy.  He’s the subject of a story in the California Sunday Magazine called, “Dunkin' and the Doughnut King,” by Greg Nichols, author of, Striking Gridiron: A Town’s Pride ad Teams Shot at Glory During the Biggest Strike in American History.
