    Zoup Fresh Soup coming to Capitol Square
    Business First – by Dan Eaton
    Date: Thursday, June 23, 2011

    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.

    maybe they will take over the empty clothing store space? Hopefully the prices are better than the Soupman’s.

    WOOT!

    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.

    On Friday evening I spotted some walls going up inside the former Dress Barn space, so it looks like Zoup is on its way!

    @Walker, I think you mean the former “Casual Corner/Petite Sophisticate” space, the old Dress Barn space is where Potbelly is.

    Oops, yeah… Casual Corner. I wasn’t a big shopper there, so I mix them up. ;)

    I noticed they are furiously at work on this project today; walls and fixtures are almost complete.

    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…

    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.

    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.

    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.
