Bambu Lowell


Paul Le and Kristy Chea welcomed a familiar face for the grand opening of the new Bambu Desserts & Drinks. That’s what happens when your former high school headmaster is now the mayor of the city.  BambuLowell2

On March 29th, Mayor William Samaras cut the ribbon at the Friends and Family Grand Opening of the new shop located in Meadowbrook Plaza (near Target.)


Coconut SmoothieBambu specializes in providing “Chèlicious” drinks and desserts to all of its patrons.  Chè is a Vietnamese word for home-made beverages, dessert drinks and puddings.

Four sisters, Anh, Kelly, Jenny and Julie Nguyen founded Bambu in San Jose California in 2008, and the cafe concept has since expanded to more thana dozen states across the country and more than 50 locations overall.  Fans of the chain’s popular offerings, Paul and Kristy felt that Lowell should be the next location to acquire a franchise and went about making it happen.

Bambu Lowell provide Lowellians and guests deliciously addicting boba teas, must-try Viet espressos coffees, and exotic fruit smoothies. Bambu’s offerings are made using freshly cut coconut water or daily-prepared coconut milk combined with select exotic, healthy and delicious ingredients.


Although Mayor Samaras is always happy when new businesses open up in the City of Lowell, seeing former students and graduates of Lowell High School chose to locate their shop in their hometown made this ribbon cutting extra special.



Bambu is located at 199 Plain St Unit 8A in Lowell and is open seven days a week.  To learn more visit
