3 years ago today, we took a chance and opened our very first shop overseas in Tokyo. It was always a dream of mine to one day be in Tokyo, and we didn’t know what to expect. But we tried the best that we could, built a beautiful shop and a team of incredibly hardworking chefs, and created what we call a “next generation bakery,” one that pushes forward with what pastry can be. Here’s a look back at those early days, with our pastry high above the city, our team giving well wishes to one another during our last family meal before opening, and day 1 when we opened our doors to more than 700 people that morning (the first of whom arrived at 9pm the night before). Thank you, Tokyo, for being a part of my dream and for traveling from near and far to visit us. And thank you to our Team @DABJapan for all of your heart and hard work. #Gambarimasu!
