Guam's governor was also there along with some senators to congratulate her for the successful grand opening, as Lou Leon Guerrero said, "I think this is a very creative way to combine a cafe and jg arts and entertainment because it will draw more people together. I know Jenny’s has been in arts and entertainment for over 20 years in Korean, very well known."
Jenny G is also the CEO of JG Art and Entertainment, the company venturing to bring K-Pop concerts to Guam. "After I learned that there were a lot of K-Pop fans on Guam, I wanted to bring K-Pop concerts on Guam while working with local artists. I thought Guam needed that space, so I created JG Arts and Entertainment and JG Cafe and Studio," she said.
Her unique background in music and art on full display at the cafe, along with her handmade ceramics. "No other cafe has that on island. One thing I am excited about is that I have plans to sell reserved pieces in the future. Because they are all handmade pieces, they are all unique and one of a kind," said Jenny.
That along with traditional flavors that JG Cafe manager Hikaru Mupas shares is already kicking-off with the locals, saying, "The grand opening was successful. One of the best drinks we have is the kiwi smoothie. That’s one of the drinks people have been really enjoying.
