Zoup!, the nation’s leading fast-casual soup brand, featuring award-winning soups and made-to-order salads and sandwiches, has broken ground on its first Washington area restaurant at 181 Old Mill Boulevard, in the Old Mill shopping center, South Strabane Township.

When the restaurant opens in August, it will be the 10th Zoup! in Pennsylvania and among more than 100 in its nationwide system. According to a press release, the company will hire about 25 new employees for the restaurant in the months ahead.

“We’ve lived in Pennsylvania for several years and our family has become big fans of Zoup! We’re excited to bring their delicious soups and welcoming atmosphere to Washington,” said Dean Evers, Zoup! franchisee.

Evers plans on opening three to five more Zoup! locations throughout the Pittsburgh area in the years ahead.

A Zoup! restaurant is also located in Town Center Boulevard, Southpointe.

Zoup! features hundreds of award-winning soup recipes with 12 rotating daily varieties, including low-fat, low-cal, vegetarian, dairy-free and gluten-free options, all served with a piece of freshly baked bread. Customer favorites include Chicken Potpie, Lobster Bisque and Vegetable Bounty. The menu also features made-to-order salads and sandwiches, and all menu items are available in convenient catering sizes for groups of 10 or more.

To help customers select from the daily soups, sampling is encouraged. 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.

As an established brand throughout the United States and Canada – with more than 100 restaurants in 19 states/provinces – Zoup! is targeting Pennsylvania as part of an overall expansion strategy.
