Nite came to Main Street Launch through a referral from La Cocina, a nonprofit that provides entrepreneurs that with affordable commercial kitchen space. Nite used the loan from Main Street Launch as starting capital, to buy equipment and pay her employees.
Coming to the United States as a refugee from Cambodia, Nite Yun opened Nyum Bai to commemorate her parents as well as celebrate Cambodian food and culture, especially its Golden Era. “Nyum Bai is a place for everyone to hang and jam out to 60s Cambodian rock music,” says Nite.
She describes her experience with Main Street Launch: “Working with Main Street Launch was accessible, transparent and timely. The employees are very responsive to emails and because of its location in Oakland, it is easy to come to the office.”
