“The Sandwich Man” & “Mr. Sandwich of Thailand”

What makes a sandwich man

After graduation from the University of Texas at Austin in 1974, I had been working in the finance and securities industry for 16 years as a professional employee. As soon as I left my post as Managing Director in 1990, I started investing in the local stock market for my clients. I was able to make profits for them until our portfolio grew to hundreds of million baht. When the stock market crashed in 1994, I lost all the money. The situation became worse when my multi-million high-end condominium project in Khao Yai collasped in 1997–the IMF year.

In April 1997, I started selling sandwiches to earn a living and to pay salaries to my staffs. On the first day, it took 6 1/2 hours to sell all 20 sandwiches and earned just 500 baht. It has been more than 20 years now that I have been selling sandwiches in the streets of Bangkok and have been interviewed by more than 120 international medias (including CNN, BBC WORLD, CNBC, NHK, AP, NEW YORK TIMES, LOS ANGELES TIMES) and over 350 domestic medias.
