Despite being a traditional Chinese pastry restaurant in Hangzhou with 108 years of history, Zhi Wei Guan is still popular among people in this modern era.
Every day, long queues can be seen outside the shop, which sells more than 1,000 pieces of its popular snacks such as Dingsheng Cake and Lotus Crisp per day.
Gan Tao, brand marketing manager of Zhi Wei Guan, said that the shop, which was founded in 1913, has always aspired to be a "star shop" and has been making continuous efforts to achieve that goal.
