Jianbing of Mr. Bing attracts New Yorkers

UrbanSpace in midtown New York is a place white-collars come for lunch during their workdays. For the past a few months, customers have always lined up before a kiosk under a banner with Chinese characters. What this kiosk sells is a very authentic Chinese food in North China -- Jianbing, or the Chinese crepe. The kiosk is branded "Mr. Bing", and is owned by Brian Goldberg, who is born and raised in New York. Goldberg is very involved with Chinese culture: he was a Chinese major back in college in Boston, and studied in China 20 years ago.

"When I went to China, I just love Jianbing so much, it tastes so good, the texture is so good, it is hot, it's fresh, it's customizable, they make it how you like it. When I come back to America, you can't find it. So if you like something and you can't get it, what you do? You make it!" said Goldberg. Goldberg's Jianbing plan is not a whim. It was the theme of his business plan when he was a MBA in Columbia University, Goldberg's Chinese Crepe. As a student, though he didn't have enough funds to proceed. It was until five years ago that he made the first step in Hong Kong.
