Wow Bao is a fast Asian concept known for its tasty food, energetic service and affordable prices, all served at “the speed of life”. Its menu focuses on fresh and healthy menu items, notably the bao, a traditional steamed bun filled with a variety of savory meats and vegetables or sweet dessert flavors. The portable Chinese snack is popular throughout Asia and has become a favorite in Chicago. Potstickers, dumplings, rice and noodle bowls, soups, salads and specialty drinks round out the menu.

Since Wow Bao’s inception in 2003, the concept has grown from a single 386 square foot kiosk at Water Tower Place to seven company owned locations, a food truck, airport locations, college campuses, Major League Baseball Stadiums, NFL Stadiums, hotels, and more than 70 grocery stores which carry a frozen retail line. Wow Bao is now found in Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, and Washington D.C.
