why do so many vietnamese restaurants have numbers in their names?

pho 75 -- pho 38 -- pho 95 -- pho 9n9 -- pho so 1:

why are so many pho places named with numbers?

some of these are clearly named after the road they're on.
but pho 75? there's a gajillion apparently unrelated pho 75s.

does anyone know why this is?
