After celebrating a 20-year tenure, Chef Penelope Wong submitted her resignation from her role as Executive Chef at Glenmoor Country Club in 2018. After successfully accomplishing the goals she has set out for herself, her team and her department at the country club, Chef Penelope set out to seek new ventures and new challenges in the culinary industry.
In December of 2018, Chef Penelope, along with her husband, Rob Jenks, set out to start their own business. After months of research, planning and execution, Chef Penelope revealed the concept of a food truck specializing in hand made dumplings and wontons.
After a complete custom build-out that Chef Penelope and Rob had executed on their own, Yuan Wonton, Denver’s dumpling truck, officially launched in the Denver market in September of 2019, exactly 1-year after Chef Penelope left the private club arena.
