For Chen Ruizhu, her dream business is to be like a big family, and she is like a family of parents, no matter who come here to work, study, visit, will be like home to feel comfortable.
Chen Ruizhu says she'll always remember when a pro just set up, a group of mothers in order to develop and produce the highest quality walnut cakes, desperate efforts to fight the story. At that time in order to make products, from the studio originally only 10 pots of pot, crazy to buy fast 30 pot at the same time, some mothers even in order to be more diligent every time the quality of cooking, will be very active to go home to cook while learning, failed to absorb themselves, success brought the studio to help everyone to sell together.
