Terry Pham, owner of Fat Straws, Inc., was born in Arkansas and raised in Dallas. At a young age, Terry was exposed to the world of specialty retail where he followed his mother to work, 7-Eleven, to help with cleaning shelves and mopping floors and eventually working as a store clerk. After continued work with 7-Eleven for 6 years while attending college, he began transitioning into Information Technology roles at IBM, Belo Corporation, and Perot Systems.
In 2002, he left his position at Perot Systems as a Change Management team lead before coming full circle 12 years later and returned to the world of retail to open his own business, Fat Straws Bubble Tea in Plano, TX.
In 2007, Fat Straws launched its second location in Dallas, TX.
Having always enjoyed being a part of what we call the “people business” he feels privileged to employ a team of hardworking individuals that collectively achieves greatness on a daily basis.
