CHICAGO, ILLINOIS (NBC) - The man who became famous by being parodied as the "Soup Nazi" on "Seinfeld" is getting ready to open a cafe in Chicago.
The original "Soup Nazi," Al Yeganeh, is opening the "Chicago Soup Man/Cold Stone Cafe" on May 24th.
Five of Yeganeh's soups - chicken vegetable, minestrone, turkey chili, seafood bisque and a rotating special - will be served.
Yeganeh has paired his soup business with Cold Stone Creamery, an ice cream chain known for its employees who sing while they scoop.
The soup guru plans to open soup-and-ice-cream cafes in six other US cities.
Patrons to the hot-and-cold concept cafe who order soup will also receive a piece of bread, chocolate mints and fruit on the side - just like Yeganeh's original, but now-closed soup stand in New York City.
