Bryan Loo

This prolific entrepreneur who wears his heart on his sleeve was dealt a blow early this year. After introducing the beverage brand Chatime to Malaysia and building it into a nationwide market leader, the Taiwanese parent company reclaimed the franchise deal. However, not one to take a hit lying down, Bryan moved on and rebranded over 200 outlets into his own franchise, Tealive. Under his company, Loob Holdings, this young man from Perlis, and our Entrepreneur of the Year 2015 is also invested in other F&B brands and outlets like Llaollao, Hacha Mecha and Define:food.

Did you know: Bryan studied biochemistry at Monash University in Melbourne and even worked as a salesman in a biotech company for two years.
