Soup-Starved New Yorkers Have Reason to Celebrate; The Original SoupMan Franchise Is Re-Opening His Landmark Location

Soup Knows No Season As Famed New York City Location Re-Opens on July 20, 2010

NEW YORK // PRNewswire // -- The Original SoupMan is pleased to announce its original location - the famed 55th Street and 8th Avenue soup sanctuary - will officially re-open on July 20, 2010 at 12PM.

Founded by the innovative perfectionist Al Yeganeh in 1984, this small, unassuming outpost quickly became a global legend. Now, it will once again serve its unparalleled soups to locals and tourists alike. The Original SoupMan's recipes are rated Zagat's best, and on opening day, and every day thereafter, from 12PM - 7PM, customers can line up for flavors that include: Jambalaya, Lobster Bisque, Crab Bisque, Mulligatawny and Chicken Vegetable. The menu will consist of Al's most popular recipes and daily specialties that spring from his vast soup imagination, including innovations such as: Tomato and Mussel, Hungarian Beef Goulash, Mexican Nacho Corn Chowder, Danish Rabbit, Asparagus and Caviar, and many more.

Long before Seinfeld acknowledged Al's soup superiority in a famous episode, discriminating soup lovers braved all kinds of weather and long lines for Al's genius. The re-opened SoupMan location will offer the same combination of fresh ingredients and innovative flavors; and long-time SoupMan fans can rest assured that Al hasn't gone trendy; the location will maintain the same humble aesthetic; the love is in the soup, not in the seats (because there aren't any!) nor are Al's rules changing. His famous litany of "Pick the soup you want!" "Have your money ready!" and "Move to the extreme left after ordering!" will remain strictly enforced.

Former New York Yankees player and Special Advisor to Strategic Relationships for The Original SoupMan Reggie Jackson will be on hand to celebrate the re-opening of the notorious location at 259A West 55th Street, between Broadway and 8th Avenue and will be open seven days a week from 12PM – 7PM.

With the launch of The Original SoupMan restaurants and his new retail line of premium, gourmet, frozen soups, Al and his team are giving everyone the opportunity to experience soup as it was meant to be - at home, or away!

About The Original SoupMan

Al Yeganeh started his Soup Kitchen International restaurant in 1984 at 55th Street & 8th Avenue in Manhattan. It soon became a worldwide destination, setting the standard for innovation and excellence in soups, and gaining global fame when it was featured in one of network television's most famous episodes of all time.

Now with the launch of The Original SoupMan restaurants and his new retail line of premium, gourmet, "heat-n-serve" soups, Al and his team are giving everyone the opportunity to experience soup as it was meant to be - at home, or away! To assure the continuity of the brand's legendary quality, Al has assembled a group of franchise owners and experts in the production of supermarket products who love soup as much as he does.
