Finally, Jason Alexander Can Say "Soup For Me!" -- Jason And The Original SoupMan Stir Up The Soup Aisle Of Pavilions

In-Store Appearance and Sampling Event to Be Held at Pavilions Supermarket in Burbank on Saturday, December 15th, 12:00pm - 3:30pm PT

NEW YORK, Dec. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Original SoupMan - the inspiration for the famous Seinfeld "No Soup for You!" episode and #1 Zagat-rated, best-tasting soup in the world— is finally giving Jason Alexander his soup! 

To celebrate the nationwide launch of The Original SoupMan in the soup aisle of supermarkets nationwide, Mr. Alexander, who played the role of George Costanza on Seinfeld from 1990 to 1998, will make an in-store appearance at Pavilions in Burbank, California on Saturday, December 15th.   An Emmy and Golden Globe nominated and Tony Award winning actor, Mr. Alexander is an equity partner in SoupMan, Inc., parent company of The Original SoupMan.  During his in-store appearance, Mr. Alexander will be filming promotional videos for The Original SoupMan and doing "meet and greets" with Pavilions' customers.  A recent poll by "60 Minutes" and Vanity Fair named Seinfeld the favorite sitcom of all time, topping The Honeymooners and Friends.

Mr. Alexander commented: "Many people don't know our famous 'soup kitchen' episode on Seinfeld was inspired by an actual soup restaurant off 8th Avenue in New York.  The soup recipes created by Al Yeganeh are considered by me and thousands of New Yorkers as some of the best soups in the world. And the Zagat's Food Guide agrees. Now that The Original SoupMan recipes are becoming available in supermarket soup aisles, the whole country will get to experience what we already know so well. I'm hoping everyone will come to enjoy the soup so many have been lining up for years to get. And don't worry, nothing can go wrong. Cause this time - well, it's soup for everybody."
