Two recent Olin alumni are featured on the Forbes’ 30 under 30 list, “a tally of the brightest stars in 15 different fields under the age of 30.” Jason Wang, BSBA ’09, CEO of Xi’an Famous Foods and Oliver Kremer, BSBA’08, cofounder of Dos Toros Taqueria are great examples of successful Olin entrepreneurs in the food industry.

We featured Jason in OlinBusiness magazine in 2011 when he had one tiny storefront Chinese take-out location in Manhattan. Today, he has seven locations.





DosTorresOliver opened his first burrito joint in New York City in 2009 with his brother. The two Berkeley, California natives have cornered the market on west coast-style burritos with four locations.

They plan to expand to D.C. and Philly later this year.

Congratulations Jason and Oliver! Do you deliver to St. Louis???
