Ex-factory worker is now a successful restaurateur

AN unhappy factory worker who managed to completely change his life by returning to his hometown in the northeast and opening a successful seafood buffet restaurant encourages others to bravely fight on till they reach their goal, INN News reported today (October 22, 2018)

Mr Narin Sudsanguan, 32, said he previously worked a factory’s purchasing department but got fed up with the routine so packed up and returned to his northeastern Surin province home to change the direction of his life.

Initially he sold mackerel and that went well, but he then met his girlfriend whose mother sold grilled seafood so he started helping them.

After they got married they separated and opened their restaurant,  Ran 1,000 Pe (1,000 years shop), in April 2017, but plunged into serious problems right from the start. As he was not good at marketing, after a few customers showed up the first day, no one came in at all.

By June, just as he thought of selling the business and moving on, people started flocking in and he has been doing well ever since.
