Best known for their Aberdeen restaurant, The China Garden Buffet, the Lin family has made a strong mark in Moore County.
I met John Lin in 1999 when he was a freshman at Pinecrest and his sister, Jing, was an 8th grader.
Their journey through Pinecrest and N.C. State as well as their upbringing with tough love parents, tells us a story about the success of these two siblings all the way up to their current status as restaurant owners and real estate investors.
John & Winnie got married 12 years ago and have 3 boys who attend the Episcopal Day School. Jing is married with one son; lives in Charlotte and works for the Belk Corporation. Winnie works tirelessly as a mother, in the restaurant and as a property manager for rental homes they own together.
This family has set a standard for excellence, diligence and loyalty. It’s a privilege to call them friends and to have been a part of their lives these last 17 years.
