Wok Box recently signed its first US lease in the Portland, OR area with franchisee Ron Elton. It will start to serve its fresh, healthy and delicious pan Asian cuisine in the area this Summer.

Surrey, BC (PRWEB) May 22, 2012 - Wok Box is pleased to announce its first US lease in Hillsboro, west of Portland, Oregon. As one of North America's fastest growing Pan Asian quick service restaurant, it will open its first location in an innovative and award-winning community at “The Crossroads at Orenco Station”, offering dine-in and take-out services to the surrounding community.

Franchisee Ron Elton, an experienced franchise operator who also owns Subway and Jamba Juice stores, plans on opening his first Wok Box this August.
