Shuttered ShopHouse locations to reopen as Bibibop in early summer

Shuttered ShopHouse locations to reopen as Bibibop in early summer

Columbus, Ohio-based Bibibop Asian Grill has assumed the leases for ShopHouse Southeast Asian Grill's 15 locations in Washington, the Chicago area and Southern California. The new locations are scheduled to be converted and opened in coming months. The new concept caught on fast with the company opening three more locations in 2014, eventually expanding to 12 total locations across the State of OH by 2016.

Bibibop, which currently operates 12 locations across Columbus and Cincinnati, expects to open restaurants in all the now-shuttered ShopHouse locations by early summer.

The first BIBIBOP Asian Grill restaurant began in Columbus, Ohio, in August 2013 as the brainchild of Charley Shin, CEO of BIBIBOP Asian Grill and global restaurant concept Charleys Philly Steaks. He also described the takeover as "more of a refresh and a rebrand" since the layout for the kitchens and restaurants will be similar to what they were as ShopHouse. Diners start with rice, followed by a choice of grilled meats or tofu, fresh vegetables and sauces, and can have it served as a bowl, a salad or a wrap.

ShopHouse was run by Chipotle, but it failed to meet sales expectations and executives called it a "distraction".

ShopHouse had three Montgomery County locations: 4820 Bethesda Ave.in downtown Bethesda, 11584 Old Georgetown Road at Pike & Rose in North Bethesda and 935 Ellsworth Drive in downtown Silver Spring.
