Popular fast-casual fresh soup restaurant set for March grand opening
Soup lovers in Cincinnati are in luck. The nation’s most popular fast-casual, fresh-soup concept – Zoup! – is now under construction in Surrey Square.
The new restaurant will be located at 4426 Montgomery Road, Ste. A, in the Surrey Square Mall in Norwood. It will be the fourth Zoup! in Cincinnati and the 26th in Ohio.
“My wife Taylor and I love Cincinnati, and we’re very excited to be a part of the growth happening in the Norwood area,” said franchisee Patrick Harder, a 2008 graduate of Glen Este High School. “We can’t wait to welcome local residents, workers and students from the university to come enjoy the comfort of hand-crafted soups in our warm and welcoming atmosphere.”
To help customers select from the daily soups, sampling is encouraged. And, for those looking to save time, a daily soup menu and online ordering are available. Customers also can sign up online to receive a daily email menu.
“We created Zoup! after discovering that really good soup is hard to find,” said Eric Ersher, Zoup!’s founder and CEO. “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.”
As an established brand throughout the United States and Canada – with 99 restaurants in 19 states/provinces – Zoup! is targeting Ohio as part of an overall expansion strategy.
