Bango announces June 22 grand opening for its Hauppauge location

Bango Bowls owners in Hauppauge

Bango’s first franchise location is getting set to open in Hauppauge later this month.

The company, which opened its first spot as Bango Bowls in Massapequa Park nearly nine years ago, will then count eight locations across Long Island and Westchester.

This will be Bango’s first franchise operation, owned and operated by brothers and business partners, Pat Pyne and Eric Campan, both Sachem graduates and experienced entrepreneurs.

“We’ve always been interested in franchising but never took the leap,” Pyne said in a statement announcing the opening. “Everything happened pretty quickly after we first read about Bango and tried the products.

“Not only was the food healthy and delicious, but the entire franchise system was created with a healthier, greener footprint in mind. The efficient tech, simple menu, the hoodless kitchen design, as well as the top-notch franchise support, set up Bango to be a huge disruptor in the fast-casual space.

“We wanted to be a part of that.”

Bango serves salads, warm grain bowls, poke bowls, acai bowls, flaninis and avocado toasts. The opening of the new Bango location in Hauppauge is the first of several locations the brothers intend to open on Long Island.

Bango Hauppauge is located at 812 Wheeler Rd., the former Dickey’s BBQ Pit.

The grand opening is scheduled for Saturday, June 22, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. The first 50 attendees will receive a free Bango T-Shirt, along with other giveaways, a DJ and local vendors on hand.
