XIAMEN, May 3 (Xinhua) -- Wang Shengfen, 37, and Chen Wayne, 24, from Kaohsiung and Taichung of southeast China's Taiwan respectively, both engage in catering business in Xiamen. Wang runs a "late night canteen" and Chen opens a family restaurant with his father.

In 2016, Wang Shengfen and his father came to the mainland to search for business opportunities. Soon, he opened a restaurant with friends in Xiamen's Jimei District. In 2022, he started his own business and opened a late night canteen, which soon became popular among diners in Xiamen. "Working in catering business is quite fulfilling to me," Wang said, "I am planning to open another restaurant soon."

At the end of 2019, Chen Wayne, who graduated from high school, came to Xiamen with his father to start their own business, but the sudden outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic disrupted their plan. The father and son then decided to run a family restaurant. Now, their business is getting on track. "Our intention of running this restaurant was to bring authentic Taiwanese cuisine to local diners," Chen said, "In the future, I hope to start a family here and expand the business scale."
