Veteran restaurateur Charley Shin, founder of Charleys Philly Steaks, is behind this Columbus, Ohio-based fast-casual concept, which launched in 2013. Bibibop serves health-focused, customizable Asian bowls with a variety of proteins and toppings. In addition to its restaurant sales, the chain has a robust build-your-own, buffet-style catering program for groups from 12 to 200. As it grows, it's keeping up with diner desires: Bibibop plans to introduce a gluten-free gochujang sauce to its lineup later this year.
