Zoe’s Kitchen was founded by Marcus and Zoe Cassimus in 1995. They opened their first restaurant in October in downtown Homewood. A few years later, in 1999, they opened a second location in the Riverchase section of Hoover, and in March 2001 a third location was opened in downtown Birmingham.
Also, in 2001 the first Zoe’s Kitchen restaurant was opened outside of the Birmingham zone in Tuscaloosa and the first out-of-state restaurant was opened in Nashville, Tennessee the same year.
In 2006 sixteen Zoe’s Kitchen restaurants were opened, of which eight were located in Alabama and the others in Destin, Phoenix, Baton Rouge, Nashville, and Memphis.
In 2007 Brentwood Associates of Los Angeles bought a majority ownership stake from Cassimus. At that time twenty Zoe’s restaurants were opened.
Nowadays more than 130 Zoe’s Kitchen restaurants are opened across 17 states in the United States, with plans for more locations to be opened in the future. The company created a reputation for flavored, healthy, quality food and it is on its way to creating a name in the fast-food industry inspired by Greek cuisine.
Zoe’s Kitchen is the right choice when you are looking for some fresh, homespun, tasty food items. Their restaurants are very clean, brightly colored, and modern, with various seating options like a breakfast bar by the window and 50’s style booths. They offer options even for clients who are in a hurry and don’t have time to stay there and enjoy their meal. These customers can pick something up on the go anytime. Also, the staff is very attentive and friendly and does its best to make your experience unforgettable.
The Zoe’s Kitchen menu inspired by Mediterranean cuisine includes many options you can choose from such as pita sandwiches, soup, grilled sandwiches, hummus, entrees, salads, sides, classic sandwiches, desserts, and drinks. They also offer a menu for kids under 12 years old. Another very appreciated options are their “Family Meals”, which includes one entree, a Greek salad with hummus and cucumber, pita, and two sides. Moreover, they provide many gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian food items.
The most popular items from Zoe’s Kitchen are pita and hummus. Clients love the hummus that comes in different flavors such as classic, red pepper, and basil pesto, but also the pita bread which is freshly baked.
The prices charged by Zoe’s Kitchen may look a little too high when compared to those you can find at other fast-food restaurants, but they are still competitive for what they offer. For example, you will have to pay anywhere between $7 and $12 for pita, hummus, and salad, while the price of a sandwich is $8 to $10. Also, sides are priced from $3 to $5 and the soups cost anywhere between $5 and $25, depending on the size (cup, bowl, quart, half a gallon).
As for the dessert, you can choose between an oatmeal raisin cookie, a chocolate chip cookie, and Yaya’s handmade chocolate cake. Each of these is priced at around $3.
The drinks section from their menu includes limeade, kids’ apple juice, kids’ milk, chocolate milk, unsweetened or sweet tea, vitamin water, and others.
