Company Based on 'Seinfeld' Soup Nazi Files for Bankruptcy

Everyone has their favorite one-off Seinfeld character, whether it's the Caped Lawyer or the Soup Nazi.

A company that sells soup from the recipes of the chef who was the real-life model of the "Soup Nazi" on "Seinfeld" has filed for bankruptcy. "This will ensure that our delicious soups remain on grocery shelves throughout the country which is in the best interests of all of our stakeholders and customers", Karson said in the statement.

The company has assets of less than $10 million, and estimated debts that could total $50 million. Which isn't such an outlandish development in and of itself, but it comes after the federal government indicated Soupman's chief financial officer on tax evasion charges, who could probably use that caped lawyer right about now. While the company has filed for bankruptcy, chief executive officer Jamie Karson announced that its products - including jambalaya, lobster bisque, and chicken gumbo - will still be available in stores.

Last month, Robert Bertrand, Soupman's chief financial officer, was arrested for allegedly failing to pay almost $600,000 worth of Medicare, Social Security and federal income taxes.

While the Soup Nazi was made famous by the 1995 Seinfeld episode, Yeganeh opened his first Manhattan store almost a decade earlier in 1984. Bertrand is pleading not guilty. The strict rules at his Soup Kitchen International were adopted by the Seinfeld character, but Yeganeh was never all that thrilled about the "homage". Today, the company sells soup to grocery chains and also at its New York-area restaurants under the brand name "Original Soupman".
