 Join us at BP Century City meeting as we welcome Theo Lee, co-founder and CEO of KPOP Foods.

Theo was fortunate as a child to live in Buenos Aires and Singapore, where he experienced a variety of cultures and cuisines. While traveling to other countries was great, Theo’s best memories were family reunions in the summer at his grandparent’s house in Atlanta. Theo’s grandma, along with other members of the family, would spend hours cooking large dinners for the family that included freshly made ban chans (Korean side dishes), kimchi and tofu stews, and savory grilled meats. When it came time for dinner, everyone would sit, eat, and laugh, and it was these experiences with food, family, and friends, that left an everlasting impression on Theo.

While Theo’s love for food grew, after college, he pursued a career in banking at OneWest Bank. During those four years, Theo gained valuable skills and experiences in finance, strategy, and business. But with a passion for entrepreneurship and startups, Theo pursued an MBA to round out his skill sets. As a Manager of Finance for an early stage fintech startup, he was a key contributor in closing the company’s $2 million seed round. However, his passion for food, especially Korean food, continued to grow and after meeting co-founder, Mike Kim, he knew it was time to take a shot at starting KPOP Foods.  In his free time, you can find Theo playing a range of sports, from kickboxing to snowboarding, watching the UCLA Bruins and LA Chargers, and enjoying drinks with his friends.


Time will be set aside for attendee introductions, so using the video feature throughout the meeting is encouraged. The presentation will take place during the second half of the meeting.
