Bao Hoang

Bao Hoang was born on 17 August 1982, and is a Founder and Group CEO of ‘Rolld’ Australia Pty Ltd. The group includes ‘Rolld’, a fast, casual food franchise that serves Vietnamese hawker-style food, and ‘Mama’s Buoi’, a casual dining restaurant that serves home-style Vietnamese cooking. Bao attended Salesian College Chadstone from 1994-2000. He was Captain of the Volleyball and Table Tennis teams during his time at the College. After completing his Bachelor of Physiotherapy at Melbourne University in 2005, he immediately joined a Physiotherapy franchise, and after two years, Bao opened five clinics. In this time, he was influential in growing the corporate services unit ‘Actif’, and founded the aged care services unit ‘Revita’, of which he is a current shareholder and involved in management consultancy.

Bao is the third son of Vietnamese refugees Van Quy and Thi Phien Hoang. He wanted to share his love of Vietnamese family recipes with the world, so with no hospitality experience, Bao opened the ‘Rolld’ chain. He has grown ‘Rolld’ to encompass 59 stores across Australia, as well as an International Master Franchise. In 2017, ‘Mama’s Buoi’ opened its fourth restaurant, spanning across Melbourne and Sydney. Bao is passionate about creating a sustainable business model to support global expansion.

Bao established a partnership with the Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation, and in September 2016, officially launched a boarding house to accommodate 150 children in crisis in Vietnam, built solely with funds raised by the ‘Rolld’ family.

Bao is married to Angela Javier-Hoang, and has three siblings; Minh-Tu, Tuan-Anh and Quynh-Anh Hoang. He has three children, Lucas, Dominic and Sienna Hoang.
