Zoup! is officially open for business in Eagan. The fast casual restaurant chain known for its award-winning soups and made-to-order salads and sandwiches opened its first Minnesota location on Aug. 6 at 1348 Towne Centre Drive

“We’re very happy to finally open our doors to the great people of Eagan,” says franchise owner and longtime restaurant industry veteran Anthony Steffen. “We’re confident that guests will love both our award-winning gourmet soups and our dedication to serving our community.”

The restaurant hosted two preview lunches and a special VIP pre-opening event that collected $2,275 in donations for Open Arms of Minnesota, supporting its efforts to cook and deliver free, nutritious meals to people living with life-threatening illnesses in the Twin Cities. Guests will get a chance to experience that community spirit when Zoup! hosts a weeklong grand opening celebration Sept. 17-21 with specials including a “Dine to Donate” fundraiser, School Spirit Day and more. Guests are encouraged to like Zoup! Eagan on Facebook for more details and to sign up for the Zoup! InsiderZ program to receive a special “buy a bowl, get one free” offer.

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 Simply Gazpacho, 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. Online ordering is also available at zoup.com.

The brand new Zoup! restaurant at 1348 Town Centre Drive is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. The 2,500-square-foot restaurant seats 84 guests in the dining room. For more information, call 651-440-7373 or visit zoup.com.
