Innovative. Fast Pace. Growth.

Join the fastest growing, most innovative Asian fast-casual omni-channel brand in the country. In addition to our Chicagoland brick & mortar restaurants, our virtual kitchen concept has launched in over 700 locations in the U.S. and Canada and continues to grow. Additionally, we can be found nationwide in more than 6,000 retailers, as well as in airports, universities, hotels, e-commerce sites, and even hot food vending machines.

Established in 2003, Wow Bao fuses superior hospitality and industry leading technology to deliver signature flavors “at the speed of life.” Our menu features rice bowls, pan-seared potstickers, dumplings, soups, and our iconic Bao – steamed hot Asian buns with a variety of savory and sweet fillings.

Wow Bao was once again recognized by Fast Casual magazine as a 2023 Top 100 Mover & Shaker! Ranked no. 1 in 2019 and 2022, we are the only brand to have taken home the honor more than once. At Wow Bao, we believe that every day deserves a big, bold serving of WOW. So, we’ve made it our mission to shake up industry and bring a fresh spin to the fast-casual experience.

We foster a culture of caring.

Whether it’s our guests or our employees, we put people first. We strive to inspire, motivate, educate, and appreciate one another every day. We live by the golden rule and treat everyone with kindness, empathy, respect, and a healthy dose of humor. We take our work, not ourselves, seriously.


At Wow Bao, we work to create moments of exploration and (bao)ndless opportunity.


We believe that life is too short for uninspired food.  We’re here to transform the Asian Street Food experience from everyday to expected to extraordinary and inventive.
