Zoup! opens new location on Woodward in Bloomfield Twp

Zoup! is now open for business at a new location - along Woodward Avenue in Bloomfield Township at Square Lake Road. 

The Woodward Avenue location is the first to showcase the chain's full brand refresh as Zoup! Eatery, offering a wide variety of "Good, Really Good" soups and broths always available for sampling, along with salads, sandwiches and additional menu categories ranging from a signature mac and cheese to organic craft beverages to nutritious Sustain-a-Bowls. The restaurant also features a freshly redesigned interior that will set the stage for all future Zoup! Eatery locations.
