Helen Lee is a Chinese-American businesswoman, entrepreneur, and philanthropist. She is the co-founder and CEO of Helen’s Foods, a successful food company specializing in Asian cuisine.
Born in Guangzhou, China, in 1965, Helen Lee was the only child of Chinese immigrants. Her father was a doctor and her mother a homemaker. When she was three years old, her family moved to the United States, settling in Los Angeles.
Lee attended public schools in Los Angeles, and later earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Southern California. After graduation, she worked for a few years in the corporate world, but soon realized that she wanted to be her own boss.
In 1993, Lee and her husband, David, founded Helen’s Foods. The company started out small, selling Asian-style frozen foods to local supermarkets. But within a few years, it had grown into a multimillion-dollar business, with products sold in stores across the country.
Today, Helen’s Foods is one of the leading producers of Asian-style frozen foods in the United States. The company has won numerous awards for its products, and Lee has been recognized as one of the most successful Asian-American entrepreneurs in the country.
In addition to her work with Helen’s Foods, Lee is also active in philanthropy. She is a major supporter of education and has established scholarship programs for Asian-American students. She is also a board member of the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art.
Lee is married and has two children.
