John Mills met his wife and co-owner, Anya, in New York City in the summer of 1998. Before meeting, John's idea of fine food was beef jerky and Cheerwine. Luckily, Anya and her family introduced him to some of the finest restaurants in the city. Anya’s mother is also an extraordinary chef, and John got to experience authentic Chinese cooking for the first time. In the spring of 2013, they launched Crunch Dynasty, an exotic hot food topping that was developed by Anya's mother. It's currently sold online and at local retailers in Richmond.
