HONOLULU, April 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Ryan Sung, son of Honolulu Cookie Company founders Keith and Janet Sung, has been named general manager, establishing him as the incoming leader of the family-owned business.
“It is an honor to carry on my parents’ legacy for generations to come. I am humbled and proud to work alongside so many hardworking team members at Honolulu Cookie Company,” Ryan said.
Ryan will play a key role in business strategy and leadership to move the company forward.
“As Ryan’s parents, we never wanted to force succession on him,” said Keith Sung, co-founder. “Our desire was to keep our business within the family, and our goal was for Ryan to learn each facet of the company, but whatever his decision was, the experience would be invaluable for anything he decided to pursue,” he said.
“We are thrilled to have our son carry on our legacy and can’t wait to see what the future has in store for all of us,” Janet said.
Ryan grew up in the business, skateboarding around the factory; cutting cookie samples for the Made in Hawaii Festival; and making deliveries after obtaining his driver’s license.
