Meet our founder

MyLinh Cao, founder of Dua Fish Tank, wants to transform fast-casual dining in the U.S. 

 MyLinh Cao has always believed that fresh, high-quality ingredients and simple, fast service are the key to growing a fast-casual restaurant. With this in mind, MyLinh set out to create a seafood franchise that allowed her to put her philosophy into action. 

In 2008, MyLinh and her husband, the late Thomas Cao, along with MyLinh’s mother, Tham Mai, opened the Dua Vietnamese Noodle restaurant in Atlanta. The restaurant was a success, and more Dua restaurants opened over the next decade, alongside MyLinh’s other restaurants, the Fish Bowl Poke Co.

MyLinh combined the two restaurant concepts into a single model, and the first Dua Fish Tank franchise opened in 2016. Customers responded to the new brand that offered all of the flavor with none of the wait, and more Dua Fish Tank locations soon followed.

 Today, the Dua Fish Tank poke bowl franchise is prepared to spread the dual-brand word across the country
