Soup lovers in Massachusetts got their first taste of Zoup nearly two years ago when the chain opened in the Sherwood Plaza on Route 9 in Natick. The chain is now gearing up to add another in the state when it opens at 375 Main St. in Worcester.
"We're thrilled to bring Zoup's award-winning recipes to the city of Worcester," franchisees Mark and Lori Fox said in a company press release. "We are very excited to open another restaurant to share our awesome soups in downtown Worcester, New England's second-largest city."
Zoup features hundreds of soup recipes with 12 rotating daily varieties, including low-fat, low-cal, vegetarian, dairy-free and gluten-free options, all served with a hunk of freshly baked bread, according to the release. The menu also features made-to-order salads and sandwiches, and all menu items are available in catering sizes for groups of 10 or more.
"We created Zoup after discovering that really good soup is hard to find," Zoup founder and CEO Eric Ersher said. "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 owns and franchises 99 restaurants in 19 states/provinces throughout the United States and Canada.
