One Team

To our Zoës Kitchen guests –

From our beginnings in Birmingham, Alabama, to our headquarters in Plano, Texas, Zoës Kitchen has always been on a journey to share what we love with each and every one of you – fresh, delicious food rooted in our Mediterranean heritage and a zest to live life to the fullest.

Because of you, this journey has grown to include more than 250 restaurants and 7,000 team members across the country, every one of whom comes to work each day on a mission to deliver goodness from the inside out.

Today, we are excited to share with you the next chapter in our journey as we join together with CAVA – a leading Mediterranean culinary brand that shares the same passion for creating bold, craveable meals and exceptional guest experiences.

Similarly to Zoës Kitchen, CAVA was founded by three first-generation Greek Americans who had a passion to bring the bold flavors and recipes of their childhood, alongside a spirit of generous hospitality, to more communities across the country. What started as a single, full-service restaurant in Maryland, has now grown to include more than 70 chef-casual restaurants across 10 states and a successful line of dips and spreads sold in specialty grocery stores, all while staying true to their values and passion for creating mind-blowing meals!

While we’re excited to share this news with you, we do want to reassure you that what you love about Zoës Kitchen is not changing, including:

  • Our commitment to always delivering exceptional experiences to you.
  • Your ZK Rewards! Don’t worry, they’ll still be there and we encourage you to keep earning your stripes!
  • Our passion for creating fresh, delicious Mediterranean meals!
  • Our focus on convenience – so that you can enjoy Zoës whenever and however you want it.
  • Our spirit of innovation which empowers our team members to meet our high standards of excellence.

We’re excited for this next step in our journey and to join the CAVA team. Keep an eye out in the coming months as we begin to incorporate the creative thinking and spirit of culinary innovation that has made CAVA so exciting these past few years, and that will surely continue to make Zoës Kitchen a delicious place to share a meal with your friends and family!

Our commitment to quality and to you, our guest, will always be number one. And we’re incredibly thankful for all of your passion and support.

Team Zoës
