Great Wall, a Chinese restaurant located next to the Fair Road Food World, is one of Statesboro’s many privately-owned businesses.

The restaurant’s owners, spouses Ping Lin and Yuquan Jiang, are immigrants from Fuzhou, pronounced Fu-jo, in China. They have managed the restaurant since it opened in 2009.

This video chronicles why they immigrated to Georgia and started their restaurant, as well as what obstacles they have faced and what it takes to run their restaurant on a daily basis.
