Diana Benzakour brings her culinary skills to the kitchen; having grown up and being exposed to the restaurant business.  Her grandparents opened their first Vietnamese restaurant in St. Paul, MN in 1985.  Her parents followed with their own restaurant in St. Paul, MN near the state capitol in 1991.  Diana was constantly surrounded by good cooks in her family-grandmother, mother, and aunts.  She went on to study Dental Hygiene at the University of Minnesota and graduated in 1991.  She has been actively practicing dental hygiene for the past 13 years but feels the strong pull of the restaurant business like the rest of her family.  Her passion is cooking, baking, and creating food items.  She has many resources to turn to for guidance and advice.  Her dream was to open her own Asian restaurant."

Chakib Benzakour immigrated to Boston, MA in 1987.  Not speaking a word of English, he started to work in the kitchen of Au Bon Pain, where he quickly moved up the ladder within 6 months, from cashier to lead baker and assistant manager.  While working at Au Bon Pain, Chakib attended Wentworth Institute of Technology where he obtained a Bachelor of Science in Electronics and Computer Technology.  He then worked as a Sales Application Engineer for the motion and control industry from 1995 to 2003 at Electro Sales, Inc. where he also headed the Management Information Systems department. His expertise in computer engineer allowed him to design the restaurant website as well as implementing a well received on-line ordering system.  His other skills also include fluency in not only English, but French and Spanish as well.
