After a season of planning and building renovations, Zoopa will open its doors in January 2014. This opening will coincide just in time for everyone pursuing New Year’s goals related to getting fit so that health-conscious individuals can have a new favorite spot every time that they go out to eat! Visit EatZoopa.com for more info. Many have grown accustomed to paying around $10 per pound for a good salad bar. Zoopa is the first of its kind to offer an all-you-can-eat option, that includes mostly organic ingredients. Truly, Zoopa is a win-win for everyone.
Zoopa guests will enjoy the familiar all-you-can-eat buffet, while being refreshed through the new focus on fresh, organic, and flavorful foods. Specifically, guests can look forward to locally grown organic vegetables and salads offered daily, along with house-made soups, pizzas, and baked goods. Zoopa will source the freshest organic produce and ensure that guests always enjoy the highest quality seasonal produce.
Zoopa’s head chef will be partnering with some other big names in the local Seattle food scene, as part of the revamped menu. The first step to providing amazing organic produce was to bring in Freggies, an organic produce delivery service. Freggies delivers organic produce to residences and businesses, including restaurants, throughout the greater Seattle region and has plans to expand to additional cities in 2014. The second step in Zoopa’s innovation was forging a relationship with Full Tilt Ice Cream, a local creamery which makes amazing frozen treats. Zoopa will debut with some of Full Tilt’s custom flavors and dessert ideas. Finally, Zoopa connected with Seattle Bagel Bakery to bolster Zoopa’s bakery selection, which will offer SBB bagels, pizza dough, and other delights.
Zoopa joins the Tukwila community as a part of the solution to keep “real food” costs as low as possible. A Zoopa representative shared that “many people are forced to eat what we call ‘non-food,’ which is made in a factory and sold in a package instead of raw, fresh, organic, health food that is grown on a farm. Zoopa is passionate about being a place where everyday folks in this community can enjoy affordable, healthy, and great-tasting food.”
The Tukwila Zoopa will reside at 393 Stranger Blvd. Tukwila, WA 98188, right across from the Westfield Southcenter Mall. Zoopa is also expanding through franchising, and those interested in joining the Zoopa team, as an employee or Franchise Partner, should contact info(at)eatzoopa(dot)com or call 206-575-0500.
