Before the pandemic, Nom Wah Tea Parlor had two-hour wait times and lines out the door. But come 2020, on its 100th anniversary, the oldest dim sum restaurant in NYC’s Chinatown temporarily closed and lost 80% of its business. To survive the pandemic, the team had to get creative. They pivoted to making and delivering frozen dumplings. Today, chefs make 20,000 dumplings a week that are frozen for delivery or pickup or served fresh for takeout. Business Insider visited the historic dumpling spot to see how these pivots have helped save Nom Wah.

First, Buffalo Games sourced from overseas and then ramped up manufacturing stateside when the factory was able to reopen in May. Since May, the company has doubled production, now making 2 million puzzles a month. Business Insider visits the factory to see how Buffalo Games did it.
