Owner Marjorie Druker is passionate about soups. She fell in love with soups when she first heard the story Stone Soup. After attending Johnston & Whales, Marjorie created the menu for the popular Boston Market restaurant chain, and soups were always her favorite. "My niche is taking what people like to eat and turning it into a soup," she says. People skip school to eat soups from her menu. Pregnant women in labor have been known to stop by the restaurant on the way to the hospital to satisfy a last-minute craving. New England Soup Factory soups are like no other soups.
