Jenni’s Noodle House has been a staple of Houston, TX since around 2000, with four locations that are locally owned and operated by a husband-wife duo, Scott and Jenni Tranweaver. They are partners both in life and in business as they manage and run the restaurant, which serves Vietnamese recipes that Jenni grew up with before she immigrated to the United States from Vietnam.
“Our restaurant has always been welcoming to the LGBT community, because it’s the right thing to do” Scott said, discussing anti-LGBTQ legislation that has been proposed in Texas and other states to grant businesses and individuals a license to discriminate against LGBTQ people and others. “I don’t want to turn anybody away. I mean, everyone’s welcome in our restaurant. I don’t care who you are, I don’t care what you look like, I don’t care how old you are, what race you are, what sexual preference, whether you’re open to the trans community. We’re open to everyone.”
