Life Reflections of Adam Tsang

Hey guys and gals! Who am I and how did I get where I am? Allow me to answer!

The current chapter of my life began when I moved back to Statesboro to run a restaurant called the Saucy Shrimp. I made the decision to return to Statesboro because it was time to be back with my family and Statesboro seemed like an interesting place to invest my business and entrepreneurial ideas into. I was able to take the Saucy Shrimp from a not-very-strong concept to what it is today, probably one of the top 5 restaurants in Statesboro. People from up to 2 hours away come to dine with us, and I’m extremely grateful that that is the case. I’ve been over that operation for a period of time, but left a team I’m extremely impressed with to help keep it going day-to-day. About a year and a half ago, the opportunity game to open Soyumi Asian Kitchen.

After a somewhat rocky start in 2017, we’ve got great momentum these days — doing things for the Statesboro market that a lot of people woudn’t think we’d be able to do. A lot of what I’ve been doing is trying to bring metropolitan style events into the smaller market of Statesboro. For instance, we just did a joint event with Papa Bucks which is a huge smoke house out in Metter (check them out!) and held Statesboro’s largest-ever Super Smash Bros. tournament. We’re starting to see people come to Soyomi to celebrate their engagements, anniversaries, bridal showers, all sorts of things. I think it’s really cool that I can bring them here both from within and out of town.

I’m really proud of the teams I’ve been able to put together in my projects so far and grateful for the community response to my efforts. I’m as busy as I’ve ever been. The last several years have been formative and encouraging, and I hope to continue the trend and soar to even greater heights!
