A group of expatriates has found success with a fast-food business that sells soup on the streets of Moscow.
Soupchik, founded by four expat investors, opened its first franchise near Smokenskaya metro station on April 8th and a second stand was opened this week near the Novoslodobskaya metro station, the Moscow Times reported.
"I always said this country is brought up on soup, yet there is no place to get it quickly," chief executive of the company Cathal Lyons told the paper.
"Most soups [sold on the street] come out of a packet, which just totally goes against what Russians think of their soup as – something that’s made by their babushka," Irish-born Mr Lyons commented.
"We’re focused on selling 100 percent natural products being made every day, early in the morning, and brought to our locations."
The range of hot soup includes 22 varieties, including chicken noodle soup, borshch and solyanka. The firm also sells Russian pies and baked rolls, and in the summer will offer cold soups such as gazpacho.
The other three expatriates hail from America, Canada and Spain and the group hopes to open 20 soup stands by the end of the year.
