What do you think if I put a pot of my vegetable beef soup in your store? An emphatic "yes!" was the answer that Danny Bowling gave to his mother-in-law, Bette, in 1987... and the seed for Soupy's was planted. After starting with that one pot of soup in bowling's meats & deli in the highlands, Soupy's opened in 1995 and has sold more than two millions cups of soup. Bette worked in a small 2' by 3' corner of the deli perfecting her recipes for many of the soups on the menu today including: cheesy potato, chili, chicken & dumplings, bean & ham, burgoo and, of course, vegetable beef.
