Zoup - Soup And Sandwich Franchise
Zoup! is...the leading quick-casual soup and sandwich restaurant that is defining the category with its premium and proprietary soups and other recipes; state-of-the-art store technology; and strong operational and procedural support. Zoup is an exciting and rewarding own-your-own business built on an innovative, dynamic, proven concept and a rock-solid operational framework. In creating Zoup!, we've set out to provide the most varieties of the best-tasting soups ever made. Our true goal, however, goes beyond the obvious. What we really want to do is create an oasis in people's lives. And, although we realize that doing so is a far greater and more elusive task than simply making great soup, we also know that unlike any other food soup has powerful and intangible qualities that provide comfort and promote a genuine sense of well-being for many people.
That's why at Zoup!, everything matters. And, that's why we always operate within a framework of principles and uncompromisingly high standards. Standards that influence our space and packaging. Standards that ensure that we never consider any but the finest, natural ingredients. Standards that guarantee the authenticity and quality of every pot, bowl and cup we serve. And, while all of this may seem extravagant for a business like ours, without this framework, Zoup! would merely be soup.
Zoup! works well as a restaurant franchise because of its simplicity and built-to-grow structure. In fact, the same "everything matters" philosophy we developed for our customers, we also extend to our franchisees in the form of strong store support.
