The Viet Huong Oriental Market is a family owned business that started in the 1980's in a small, local pool hall with only 3 shelves of groceries. Over the years, the grocery section continued to thrive until it eventually outgrew the local pool hall and moved to a shared commercial location with another tenant in a small, 2-suite property. The oriental grocery thrived for more than 25 years until the commercial property was sold, thus closing the store. In 2012, Ms. Rhonda Tran, a Vietnamese mother with an entrepreneurial spirit, decided to once again resurrect the grocery store, but this time under a new name and a more accessible location in the middle of Savannah. Her customers loved the immediate access to real Asian food.
Rhonda's daughter now runs the family business. Hong Tran is a Vietnamese American who respects the tradition of old ways but views it under a proud, American ideology. Her regular customers love shopping there, rave of the "true tastes of the Orient," and can witness the entrepreneurial spirit once carried by her mother.
