MARCH | APRIL 2019 69 “If you want a better lifestyle, you have to work hard.” - Howard Ask anyone in the Dallas area where to get the best Chinese food, and you’ll undoubtedly hear Howard Wang’s. Patriarch Howard brought the family recipes and traditions and over 30 years of experience, and he is thrilled his son Jowin is now taking the reins running their Frisco restaurant. Since the 2005 open- ing of Howard Wang’s China Grill in Preston Hollow, the restau- rant’s reputation for amazing Chinese dishes in a contemporary atmosphere has made it a hugely popular destination. Now with locations in Uptown, Southlake, and its newest at The Star in Frisco anyone in the metroplex can experience their signature dishes. Jerry Jones himself, a regular at the Dallas locations, was instrumental in luring the loyal Cowboys fans to The Star, right by the Cowboys practice facility. Howard admits, “The restaurant business is not easy,” and he should know. Eight years after immigrating to the U.S, his par- ents opened their own restaurant in Irving where he grew up learning the ropes. Now his son Jowin is the third generation in the family business. He says his dad had him start at the bottom, just like anyone else. Over the years Jowin has worked in every area of the restaurant, with the exception of the kitchen. “It’s one of the most difficult businesses to go into,” Jowin says, “but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.” The lessons learned working are ultimately, lessons in life. Jow- in says his dad has worked to help instill good values and a strong work ethic in him and his younger brother (who is now training as a manager at another location). Now that he’s a father him- self, he can recognize that the sacrifices Howard made and the commitment he had to his business and his family are the values he wants to pass along to his own two children. Howard says he taught his boys that “If you want a better lifestyle you have to work hard.” Their success can be attributed to that shared com- mitment…. and to the delicious food they serve. Now with so many locations, in communities they feel a part of and show sup- port to, especially for local schools and events, they are looking forward to their new venture together in Frisco. “It’s something I’m passionate about,” says Jowin.
