Chen-Chen Huo has enjoyed an impressive career. A UC Berkeley business graduate, Chen-Chen’s work has spanned a series of companies, working in everything from business analysis to consulting. Yet, despite this success, he felt a deep desire for change. Taking some time to travel, he entered a period of introspection. Ultimately, Chen-Chen realized that his goal in life was to create something in an industry that truly motivated him. That industry would be the food business, something intimately familiar from Chen-Chen’s childhood. A native of San Francisco, Chen-Chen grew up in his father’s restaurant in Chinatown. Each day after school, he would head to the family restaurant, settling down on one of the tables in the dining room. There, he would sit quietly, doing his homework while taking in the sights and sounds. Sometimes, he would help bus and clean tables. There were many restaurant regulars and most of them knew Chen-Chen, tipping him in gifts and other trinkets. All of these were happy memories for Chen-Chen and he wanted to rekindle that positivity by starting a food business that also combined his interest in health and sustainability. At first, his parents were cautious about this new career change. Like many immigrant parents, the last thing they wanted for their child was to enter the notoriously difficult food industry. While the career transition was harsh, Chen-Chen persevered, eventually winning over his parentsl. His creation was Kitchen Keto, a meal delivery company with a mission to make healthy, high-quality food both accessible and tasty. Chen-Chen makes a concentrated effort to work with local food purveyors for maximum freshness and lower environmental impact. It’s also affordable, a critical point for Chen-Chen. In the end, Kitchen Keto is both a business and personal story for Chen-Chen. “Food is inherently personal. And that’s something I’ve always wanted to contribute to,” said Chen-Chen.
