To help fuel its growth, this fast casual, which launched in 2013, is taking over the spaces of another Asian fast casual: Bibibop bought the failed Chipotle spinoff ShopHouse Southeast Asian Kitchen last year and assumed the leases of all 15 units. To differentiate itself, the chain features customizable rice bowls topped with proteins, vegetables and sauces—a play on the traditional Korean bibimbap. The chain recently added miso soup with seasonal toppings to the menu.
