Don Ho

Don has been involved in the food & beverage industry since 2013 when he decided to leave the daily grind of corporate life after discovering his passion for tea.To further his knowledge of tea, Don took professional education classes and traveled across the US and several Asian countries to visit tea farms and learn from the farmers themselves. In 2014, he sold his law firm and turned his hobby into a business.With no experience in the restaurant industry, but supported by an amazing family and team, he created an eight-figure foodservice and retail business. In the first four years of operation, Don oversaw fourteen consecutive quarters of growth ($10M+ sales), several local Small Business and "Best Of" awards, and the opening of three more stores. Don exited this business in early 2020 and co-founded BDH Consultants to advance the global beverage industry.Don gives back by mentoring younger entrepreneurs through multiple organizations such as Entrepreneurs' Organization and ACE Next Gen.
