WCHL: Pho Happiness
Raised in Vietnam, Andy Hoang, the owner and operator of Franklin Street’s Pho Happiness, immigrated to California in his late teens with his mother.
Growing up, he had always dreamed of owning a restaurant where he could expose people to the wonders of Vietnamese food. When asked to talk about what makes Vietnamese food special, Hoang said: “Vietnamese food is really fresh and has a lot of vegetables. You don’t feel bad eating it and it always felt like home to me.”
