As part of its new series of test concepts (including a chicken restaurant called Super Chix and a fast-casual taco shop), Yum! Brands, parent company to restaurants like Taco Bell and KFC, is indeed opening a banh mi sandwich shop. According to EscapeHatch, Banh Shop will open in Dallas, Texas on SMU Boulevard in a former auto repair shop. There are no details on the opening date, or what's on the menu, but if the company's chains set any precedent, there will no doubt be plenty of hybrid eats. Doritos powder-crusted Double Down stuffed with banh mi fillings, anyone?
