Banh Shop, an Asian street food fast casual concept, has opened its first location in Fort Worth, Texas.
Banh Shop is located in the heart of TCU’s restaurant row on University Avenue. Its menu has been developed by industry innovator Mark Brezinski. It features Asian street food favourites such as soups, salads, sandwiches and bowls.
The new restaurant venue also features a full-service bar.
The new Banh Shop location will be owned and operated by YEB II, which currently owns and franchises the Banh Shop brand in the US and Canada.
YEB II president and CEO Ken Myres said: “We are thrilled to open the University Ave Banh Shop near TCU.
“We have two additional Banh Shops under development in Irving on MacArthur Blvd. and in the Shops at Park Lane in Dallas that will open in the next several months.

“Banh Shop is a fantastic concept with a proven track record and we look forward to continuing to grow and franchise the brand in the US and internationally. We value our partnership with YUM and also look forward to continuing to work closely with their team.”
Originally created by Yum Brands, Banh Shop was meant to take advantage of the demand for real Vietnamese bowls and baguettes in a range of busy settings.
Banh Shop opened its first location at SMU in Dallas and then at Terminal D at DFW International Airport.
It has also opened restaurant outlets at Toronto Pearson International Airport and Vancouver International Airport in Canada.
Banh Shops added that additional airport locations such as “street side” development, are in the process.
