Wow Bao Now
Wow Bao ships our delicious food, including our famous Potstickers, Rice Bowls, and Bao to local restaurants we have partnered with. Wow Bao trains restaurant partners to freshly steam Bao and offers pick up or delivery for customers through DoorDash, GrubHub, Uber Eats, and Postmates. Our food. Your restaurant. Your team. Your sales.
We partner with local restaurants
Inspired by the handy, pocket-sized Asian bun for which it’s named, Wow Bao Now is a restaurant platform that slides into any restaurant kitchen and transforms it into an Asian restaurant. All you need is a steamer and a few feet of space and you’re in business. That means the corner cafe that needs more sales? It can turn on a Wow Bao Dark Kitchen! That beloved burger joint that wants to grow a second revenue stream? It can operate a Wow Bao. Every local restaurant that needs more, can have more. Right now.
All across the country. It’s that easy.
Wow Bao’s signature menu offerings are uniquely suited to unlock opportunities to generate additional revenue utilizing an existing kitchen infrastructure. The menu can be executed with little or no adjustments to a commercial kitchen operation + a seamless process to activate on third-party delivery platforms.
