Growing up, there was nothing more exciting than sharing food. In Atlanta, Theo's grandma would bring everyone over to make a feast, and on the other side of the world, Mike was introducing his military buddies to Korean food in Seoul. A world away, their passion for Korean food (and soju) would bring them together.

Mike and Theo met at UCLA Anderson, and the late nights in business school turned into late nights at Korean BBQ. Seeing their friends' delighted reactions to the delicious and communal experience of Korean food sparked an idea: they could bring Korean flavors to the people. Right there, KPOP Foods was born.

After joining forces with celebrity chef and owner of multiple award-winning restaurants Chris Oh, KPOP Foods developed and perfected a new line of uniquely delicious sauces that pair perfectly with the original KPOP Sauce.
