Zoup will be on this fall downtown. A franchisee for Southfield, Mich.-based Zoup Fresh Soup Co. plans to open the first Central Ohio location for the fast-casual soup chain in the Huntington Center on Capitol Square.
Barboza signed up with the growing brand last year and has spent the past 12 months hunting for an ideal debut location. The 2,700-square-foot eatery could open by November.June 24, 2011 2:55 pm at 2:55 pm #449544
maybe they will take over the empty clothing store space? Hopefully the prices are better than the Soupman’s.June 24, 2011 3:22 pm at 3:22 pm #449545
I like soup.
But we don’t have a good soup place that just makes soup.
I wish we had a Souper Market that they have in Cleveland. My god that soup is good.September 19, 2011 2:26 pm at 2:26 pm #449546
On Friday evening I spotted some walls going up inside the former Dress Barn space, so it looks like Zoup is on its way!September 19, 2011 2:58 pm at 2:58 pm #449547
@Walker, I think you mean the former “Casual Corner/Petite Sophisticate” space, the old Dress Barn space is where Potbelly is.September 19, 2011 3:12 pm at 3:12 pm #449548
Oops, yeah… Casual Corner. I wasn’t a big shopper there, so I mix them up. ;)October 26, 2011 5:42 pm at 5:42 pm #449549

Zoup will be opening its downtown doors just in time for the cooling temperatures. Franchisee Denis Barboza plans to open the fast-casual soup chain Nov. 10 in the Huntington Center on Capitol Square. It will be the first Columbus location for Southfield, Mich.-based Zoup Fresh Soup Co.

I noticed they are furiously at work on this project today; walls and fixtures are almost complete.November 8, 2011 4:49 pm at 4:49 pm #449551
Walked by yesterday and they looked to be testing things out and finishing with the process of setting everything up. I imagine it should be open any day now…November 15, 2011 7:10 pm at 7:10 pm #449552
ate there today. got the combo with soup and sandwich to go. the turkey club and lobster bisque is very good and very filling. you get a half a sandwich and cup of soup, a pieces of bread comes with the soup (sourdough, french bread, or wheat). I’m full and content. cost $8.00.November 15, 2011 8:25 pm at 8:25 pm #449553
Nice! Will have to scope it out soon. ;)November 17, 2011 4:55 pm at 4:55 pm #449554
Tried the Lobster Bisque today. For the first time downtown, I got a Lobster Bisque under $10 that contained a substantial amount of Lobster. I got the bowl for $7.25 and it came with french bread. It was more than enough food for lunch. They are very liberal with samples as well and one could get full on that alone. I will definately be back. I do want to note however, that Custom Chef in the Key Bank Building is making similar tasting chili and potato soup for half the price.November 18, 2011 2:55 pm at 2:55 pm #449555
Here is thier menu, I am hoping to check this out and hopefully find good soup.
It’s a bit of a drive to the Souper Market in Cleveland for good soup, but that’s the closest spot.November 18, 2011 5:13 pm at 5:13 pm #449556
I think the word is out that they are open. tried going today, line was too long so went to Daniela instead.November 18, 2011 5:44 pm at 5:44 pm #449557
Any pics of the interior/exterior build-out from someone who’s been?
