Zoup! is officially open for business in Frederick. The fast casual restaurant known for its award-winning soups and made-to-order salads and sandwiches opened its first Maryland location on October 15 at 5597 Spectrum Drive.

“We’re thrilled to finally open our doors for our friends and neighbors in Frederick; we know they will quickly fall in love with the comforting soups, salads and sandwiches at Zoup!” says Jeff Overstreet, who owns the new restaurant with his wife, Lori, and plans on opening several additional locations in the area over the next five years.

The restaurant hosted two days of “sneak peek” previews in association with the Frederick County Chamber of Commerce on Oct. 12 and 13. During these preview events, guests donated $1,091 for the Frederick County Humane Society’s Unsung K9 Heroes Project. The program helps provide much-needed items for law enforcement K-9 officers in the Frederick area.

The brand new Zoup! is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Guests are encouraged to like Zoup! Frederick on Facebook for more details on upcoming events and to sign up for the Zoup! InsiderZ program to receive a special “buy a bowl, get one free” offer. For more information, call 301-732-8686 or visit zoup.com.

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. Customer favorites include Chicken Potpie, Lobster Bisque and Roadhouse Sirloin Chili, but guests are encouraged to find the soup that’s perfect for them by sampling before they order. The menu also features seasonal, made-to-order salads and sandwiches, and all menu items are available in convenient catering sizes for groups of 10 or more.
