Zoup has broken ground in the hamlet of Carle Place in Long Island, New York. The restaurant, which is under construction at 19 Old Country Rd. in the Country Glen Shopping Center, will be the first Zoup on Long Island and the third in the state of New York, according to a company press release.
"We’re thrilled to bring Zoup's award-winning recipes to residents, workers and shoppers in and around Country Glen," said Annie Hsu, who owns the Carle Place franchise with her sister, Ming Chung.
"We created Zoup! after discovering that really good soup is hard to find," said Eric Ersher, Zoup’s founder and CEO, who will speak at the annual Restaurant Franchising and Innovation Summit, July 18-20 in London. "Also, in talking to people, it became clear that there's something special about soup and the way it elicits thoughts of family, well-being and comfort for many people. We strive to offer authentic, hand-crafted soups that are as good — and as 'feel-good' — as the homemade soups our mothers and grandmothers used to make."
Zoup has 99 restaurants in 19 states and provinces.
