Our Guest for the November 20th edition of PlayMakers Talk Show: Theresa Motter, CEO, Van’s Kitchen
Theresa Motter, CEO, Van’s Kitchen
Theresa Motter was born to run an egg roll business. She immigrated with her family to the United States in the late 1960s from Vietnam. In 1975 the Nguyen family moved to the Dallas area, and in 1986 Theresa’s father launched VAN Oriental Food, a specialty egg roll vendor. Theresa was there from the company’s start, contributing to the business launch after she graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in business.
Theresa Motter is a 2nd generation CEO running the re-branded Van’s Kitchen making it a woman and minority owned business. From the day the company was established it has been committed to crafting quality products from the freshest ingredients. Theresa’s career includes holding every non-production position in her 30 years of work experience. She often jokes that the reason Van’s Kitchen is still in business is because she never made the egg rolls!
In the late 1980s Theresa met her husband and business partner, Carl Motter, and together they have built Van’s Kitchen into the specialty producer of “better than restaurant” egg rolls it is today.
