Soup Nazi Invading Dallas

Al Yeganeh, whose Soup Kitchen International store in midtown Manhattan was the inspiration for Seinfeld’s “Soup Nazi” episode, is now going nationwide via the new Original Soup Man franchise. The first Texas location is opening this summer in Dallas at the newly-expanded NorthPark Center.

If you go, here are the rules:
1. Pick the soup you want!
2. Have your money ready!
3. Move to the EXTREME left after ordering!

There's also a list of rules for media inquiries, one of which is not to mention the N-word. Although Yeganeh understandably resented having his house rules likened to National Socialism on national TV, he apparently has no qualms about parlaying that association into big bucks. Not that there’s anything wrong with that…
