Popular Mediterranean Restaurant Expands in Virginia

Facebook Contest Gives Away 500 Meals, Free Zoës for a Year

Zoës Kitchen, a popular, Mediterranean fast-casual restaurant featuring fresh, wholesome dishes, continues expansion in Virginia. Zoës’ new restaurant in Ashburn marks the company’s 113th location reaching 15 states nationwide. Founded in 1995 in Birmingham, Alabama, by Zoë Cassimus, Zoës features quality ingredients, family recipes and a variety of menu items that are made from scratch daily. Zoës is one of the fastest-growing fast-casual restaurant concepts in the nation. The new Zoës location is located at 44743 Brimfield Drive, Ashburn, VA, and will open Thursday, April 3rd.

“We are thrilled to become a part of the Ashburn community,” said Regional Operator Sam Hernandez. “At Zoës, our mission is to deliver goodness from the inside out. This isn’t just about serving fresh, made-from-scratch meals; it also embraces the way we treat every guest and each other with genuine Southern hospitality.”

To celebrate the opening, Zoës is giving away 500 meals at the new location in Ashburn. To top it off, one grand prize winner will win Zoës for a year at the new restaurant! The contest runs from March 13 through March 27. Visit the Zoës Kitchen’s Facebook page at to enter to win.

Zoës customers can also download the Zoës L.I.F.E. mobile app to receive free goodies on each visit, order online, set fun life goals and receive daily inspiration.

The Zoës Kitchen menu features fresh Mediterranean flavors that captivate the senses, as well as a few Southern favorites that became a staple at the first location in Birmingham and have since made Zoës an extension of many home kitchens. The menu will showcase entrees such as salads, pitas, sandwiches, and kabobs in addition to fresh sides like no-mayo slaw, potato salad, and braised white beans with fresh rosemary, among others. The freshly prepared sides are available in to-go pints called Fresh Takes.

Signature dishes such as chicken kabobs, chicken rollups and hummus and the restaurant’s gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options feature an abundance of fresh vegetables and herbs, lean proteins and flavor! Zoës is committed to serving food of exceptional quality and using fresh ingredients prepared daily from original recipes – perfect for folks that value eating real, unprocessed foods but whose busy lives limit their time in the kitchen. There are no fryers or microwaves at Zoës which is just one reason guests feel great after eating there.

At Zoës, guests can dine in, order online or call ahead for takeout. Also available for purchase are a variety of fully-prepared Dinners for Four for the hungry family on the go and Fresh Takes by the pint. Zoës’ extensive catering menu includes box lunches, party trays and hot meals for any business occasion or social gathering that can be delivered locally.

Zoës’ Ashburn location seats approximately 74 guests in the dining room, including an outdoor patio which seats 24. The restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. The new location also plans to offer beer and wine.
