Annie Chun was born in Seoul, Korea, and came to Northern California as a young adult, where her family owned and operated a Korean restaurant in San Francisco. Annie began selling Asian sauces at the Marin County Farmers' Market in the 1990s. In 1992, with $500 and a lot of help from friends and family, she founded Annie Chun's Gourmet Foods. Her goal was to make Asian cooking "as easy to prepare as spaghetti" for Americans. Many of her products are reportedly based on traditional recipes that have been part of her family for generations. In 1997 Annie moved beyond Asian sauces, introducing a line of specialty Asian pastas.
