Zoup! Hosts Summer of Fun with New Chilled Soups


From our friends at Zoup!...

Family Meals and MTB Sandwich Round out New Features Now on the Menu

Summer is finally here, and Zoup! is celebrating the season with some fun new and returning menu items. Now through August 19, the fast casual restaurant known for its award-winning soups and made-to-order salads and sandwiches is bringing back the ever-popular MTB (mozzarella, tomato, basil) sandwich and the Simply Gazpacho chilled soup while also introducing customers to a new chilled favorite, the Avozpacho! And if that weren’t enough, Zoup! is also debuting Family Meals, the perfect way to feed a group after a busy or relaxing summertime day.

“The MTB and the Simply Gazpacho were both big hits last year, so we are excited to bring them back this summer as a seasonal treat for our customers,” says Zoup! founder and CEO Eric Ersher. “The new chilled Avozpacho is a refreshing addition to our menu of delicious, fresh-made soups.”


Both soups are made in the restaurant daily. Simply Gazpacho features an assortment of fresh vegetables in a spicy tomato broth with cilantro, while the new Avozpacho also includes the best fresh vegetables served in avocado puree with roasted jalapeños. Both are topped off with sour cream and scallions for a zesty finish. The fan-favorite MTB Sandwich comes piled with sliced mozzarella, tomatoes and fresh basil topped with a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette on stone-baked ciabatta bread.

Zoup! features a wide variety of award-winning soups with 12 rotating daily varieties, including low-fat, low-cal, vegetarian, made with gluten-free ingredients and dairy-free options, all served with a hunk of freshly baked bread.
