From War-Torn Vietnam to Thriving Cabinetry Business: The Inspiring Journey of a Vietnamese Refugee in Philadelphia


Nov 21, 2023

DVR Cabinetry, a thriving business specializing in cabinets and countertops, is the brainchild of Johnny Nguyen. Nguyen left his home country during the Vietnam War with the goal of giving his children a better life and leaving behind the hardships caused by the war, food shortages, and supply chain issues. After immigrating to Malaysia and eventually the United States, Nguyen worked various jobs while continuing his education. He eventually started a successful printing business that led him to enter the construction industry. Today, DVR Cabinetry employs around 25 people and Nguyen hopes to hire another 50 as his business grows. He believes in the American Dream and wants to inspire others by emphasizing the opportunities available in this great nation.
