Pho Hot Bistro owner to expand west, south

WICHITA — His newest restaurant is less than two weeks old, but Danny Nguyen is already at work on his next two concepts.

Nguyen opened Pho Hot Bistro in the former Amarillo Grill space at 306 N. Rock Road on Aug. 21.

It's a more upscale version of his Pho Hot near Pawnee and the Canal Route.

Now, he's looking to do a west-side Pho Hot Bistro by the Lowe's near 29th and Maize.

Nguyen doesn't have a deal yet but hopes to soon.

He's also working on an express location for Derby near the Target in the Derby Marketplace at 71st South and Rock Road.

"It's kind of like Chipotle style," Nguyen says of his concept.
