Vietnamese restaurant group

Pho serves traditional Vietnamese food in an informal and casual environment. It specialises in Vietnam’s national dish, pho, a tasty and nutritious noodle soup. The menu also offers other authentically prepared Vietnamese dishes, coffees, beers and fruit juices.

 

Rolling out authentic Vietnamese food across the UK

Stephen and Juliette Wall set up Pho after travelling to Vietnam and being inspired by the culture and cuisine. They opened the first restaurant on St. John Street, Clerkenwell, London, in June 2005.

Livingbridge’s investment is supporting the founders as they continue to grow and develop the business. Since our investment Pho has already grown from seven sites to 21 and has become a highly sought after brand in the fast casual restaurant market.

 

“In Livingbridge we have partners who have the same passion, beliefs and commitment to building the Pho brand as ourselves. Jules and myself remain at the forefront of the business and are more committed than ever to bringing great Vietnamese food to London and the UK. The Livingbridge partnership will enable us to spend even more time and resource on making the customer experience even better.”

Stephen Wall, Co-Founder
