About Us

Zoup! Eatery is the newest version of Zoup!, combining the best of our soup and natural broth legacy with an expanded, fresh menu, updated technology and modern feel.

Looking For Something Different?

Zoup! is a franchise of locally owned and operated fast casual eateries across the U.S. and Ontario. Since 1998, the brand has led the soup-differentiated category of Fast-Casual by focusing on its star lineup of 12 daily soups and made-to-order salads and sandwiches. To build on these strengths, support franchise owners’ growth and create value and excitement for guests, the brand is introducing an all-new restaurant design, a frictionless customer-facing tech platform and new bold, chef-driven menu items.

Recent menu additions include six Sustain-a-Bowls, which are big flavor meals with all-natural, healthy ingredients like Zoup! Broth, ancient grains, cauliflower rice and housemade sauces. Varieties like Hearty Sesame and Cowboy Ranch Grain Bowls, and Korean Zing and Vegan Nation Broth Bowls are part of the new lineup. The brand has also introduced organic, craft beverages, which are made fresh daily in small batches in flavors like Hibiscus Bloom, Vintage Lemonade and Sri Lankan Black Tea.
