Since 1984, the Original SoupMan has defined excellence and imagination in the art of soup. Our tiny outpost on 55th Street in Manhattan generated such loyalty and lines that "Seinfeld" memorialized the phenomenon in a famous episode. Now, more than 25 years later, a talented and experienced management team is creating a multi-channel national brand that produces small-batch soups that live up to their Zagat and Consumer Reports "Best" ratings. We reach discerning consumers through supermarket distribution, franchised restaurants, and our ecommerce-enabled website.

Franchise Opportunities

Original Soupman has been franchising since 2004. 8 locations. We offer three different franchise opportunities- a mobile franchise (food truck or trailer), a co- branding opportunity, and a traditional fixed location.
