QUICK FACTS

> First partnered with Valor in 2017.

> Wow Bao began as a single kiosk in Chicago’s Water Tower Place and expanded rapidly into 11 locations and a line of frozen foods sold in grocery stores.

> After more than 13 years of steady growth, Wow Bao has shifted into high gear and is now scaling its concept nationally with franchising partners.

> In 2019, Wow Bao topped FastCasual's list of Top 100 Movers & Shakers.

 

Partnering with Valor has allowed both our concept, and our team, to grow faster and further than any of us dreamed possible.
— GEOFF ALEXANDER, PRESIDENT, WOW BAO
