Meet Ted Kim, Co-Founder and Co-Owner of Seoul Sausage Company, a game-changing cultural icon that he and his brother Yong co-founded 8 years ago. Listen in as he shares his story of growing up in Cupertino, how he found his passion for digital marketing at UCI, and how volunteering for the Korean American Coalition changed his life in more ways than one.
We celebrate all of Ted's awesome achievements, both academic and professional, with particular kudos to his early career in digital marketing, where he was often promoted and recruited to lead amazing campaigns.
We support his passion, his baby, his company Seoul Sausage and all the good memories and emotions they have brought the Korean American community for the past 8 years.
We are inspired by his vision and tenacity to create something that he and his brother can call their own and to show us all that through thick and thin, you can have fun running a meaningful company with your brother.
