How One TikTok Star Is Giving BIPOC-Owned Seattle Restaurants a Big Boost
BackBack in January, 27-year-old social media manager Teena Thach started memorizing 30-second dances on TikTok with her boyfriend as a fun hobby. She tried to study what usually became popular on the app, but despite her deep knowledge of social platforms, nothing went viral. But in July, a friend and pop-up restaurant owner, Thai Ha, told her to come by Mangosteen, his new stand behind Phở Bắc in Chinatown. While Thach was there, Ha suggested she make a TikTok video in exchange for a discount.
