“The successful economic partnership between the United States and Taiwan continues to play a major role in bringing jobs to Southern California. Thriving businesses, like 85°C, have introduced Taiwanese-style bakery products to a mainstream audience while creating roughly 1,000 jobs in my home district. The success of 85°C is a phenomenon that has swept the country and I’m thrilled to learn that they plan to continue growing and providing more job opportunities in California. With our shared values of democracy and open markets, it is more critical than ever that we continue to cultivate this positive economic relationship.”
