The Bao Guys was founded in 2020 by three graduate Law students with Lucas Isaac as one of them. With job prospects low due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the trio turned to the food industry instead and started a small business in their condominium, producing all manner of halal baos for delivery and takeaways. Five months later, their successful little venture, The Bao Guys, moved into their very own brick-and-mortar store in the food haven that is SS2 in Petaling Jaya.
