about

Banh Oui, is a California based fast casual restaurant, focused on quality, flavor and consistency.  Its menu reflects the diverse palate of Los Angeles, with a focus on sandwiches and farmers market driven side dishes. Banh Oui is a play on words, “Banh” in Vietnamese translates to bread and “Oui” in French means yes. 

 

founding story

Banh Oui started in two 10x10 tents at an outdoor market in DTLA. Within its first year of business, Banh Oui took residency at three different locations.  The first was at an old Silver Lake Service Station, where twice a week the company popped up for four hours.  Due to its growing public image, Banh Oui participated in the annual Hilarity for Charity Event, led and curated by comedian Seth Rogan, showcased its menu at several one-off LA weekly invitation only events, and shared the stage with other up and coming restaurants at the Los Angeles Times’ popular TASTE event at Paramount Studios.  Despite not having a brick and mortar, Banh Oui established itself as a stand alone concept and restaurant, often included in food driven events.

The second location was at The Standard’s DTLA Rooftop.  Over 6 months, five days a week during lunch and happy hours, Banh Oui was able to implement staff training, menu tastings, and perform a complete kitchen overhaul to execute their company standard and vision.  In one year, and a total investment of $5k, Banh Oui increased its total revenue by 30%, without owning a stand alone store front.

In 2018, after two years of nomadic pop-ups around the city, Banh Oui secured its first brick and mortar located in the heart of Hollywood.  Now 6 months into the "pandemic economy" Banh Oui has shifted its focus from not only being fast casual, but also farmers market driven.  Banh Oui currently carries several Farmer's Market vendor products in an attempt to create a sense of community and support within a now quiet neighborhood.
