Pho Happiness

Restaurant owner and pho connoisseur Andy Hoang keeps a 56-ounce jar of peanut M&M’s and a cup of Vietnamese instant coffee with him at all times while at work.

“I’m down to an average of three to four hours of sleep a night on average, the coffee and sugar are what get me through,” Hoang explained.

He dedicates his late nights to creating modern twists on Vietnamese classics and running Franklin Street’s newest restaurant, Pho Happiness, located on 508-A West Franklin St. Hoang immigrated to the United States from Vietnam, where he was raised on traditional Vietnamese cuisine, when he was 13 years old.
