The all-you-can-eat communal soup chain seems to be rebounding since last year, when it weighed heavily on parent company Yum Brand’s portfolio. In 2015, Yum reported a shrinking value for the brand’s China market. However, the chain has expanded with 10 more U.S. locations. Technomic President Darren Tristano says the brand may break out even more if it can market to mainstream America.
