Two brothers. One sweet idea.
2011: Vincent discovered ‘toasted coconut’ when creating his mom’s favorite recipe from Thailand….and thought, “Dang! This could be a snack!” Minutes later: Called his brother, Andrew, in Thailand and had him source toasted coconut.
2012: Dang was started.
2015: Now Dang snacks are sold in over 5,000 stores nation-wide; the company has three full-time employees. (By the way: “Dang” is their mother’s Thai nickname.)

Favorite QuickBooks Online Feature
For Vincent, the ability to pull sales reports instantly is invaluable for marketing. And for Daniel, having that portability—and share-ability—gives everyone real time access to the data.
Advice from Vincent & Andrew
Network. Network. Network.
"Try to learn from people who’ve been doing what you’re doing longer than you have. (We learned about QuickBooks from networking.) Oh, and set up a board of advisors with smart experienced people; you’ll be amazed at what happens."
Dang! That's good!
Look for Dang snacks in Whole Foods, Safeway, Kroger, H-E-B, Target, Stop ‘n Shop and (coming soon…) Costco and Amazon.
