There is quite a bit of parking downtown. We are just spoiled here in Quincy because it is all free and most people think it is a crime to have to walk more than half a block anywhere.

Revitalization of the downtown area is supposed to bring in more visitors and more spending...therefore more sales tax $$. So the city does get some extra $$ from that. And when the TIF expires the added property value will lower tax rates for the rest of us. That's the idea of it.

There are actually ways to create "hard" parking that has grass or other vegetation growing through it. Menards even carrys one version. This allows you to have parking that doesn't look like another black ocean and it doesn't turn into mud with every rain like a lawn would. I think this type of "green" parking lot would be the most suitable use of this property. You need the extra parking…

I'm still waiting for someone to tell me what's in it for the city? What does the city get financially from the project? The empty lot is not costing us anything now. We have money for the Hobart people but we can't even keep the trees alive in downtown Quincy.

Zoup! will feature homemade soups, salads and sandwiches

To satisfy growing marketplace demand for high-quality, healthy and convenient dining options, Zoup! Fresh Soup Company franchisees Steve and Patti Bunch have signed a lease to open a Zoup! location in Quincy. The new restaurant, which is scheduled to open this fall, will be located in the Shoppes on Broadway at 3430 Broadway.

As an established brand throughout the United States and Canada – with more than 60 restaurants in 16 states/provinces – Zoup! is targeting Illinois as part of an overall expansion strategy.

"After an extensive two year search into various franchise concepts, Patti and I both fell in love with the Zoup! concept, culture and personal customer service standards and found it to be exactly what we’d been looking for in opening our first restaurant,” said Steve Bunch. “What separates Zoup! from all of the others is that it's not just another restaurant to eat at, Zoup! is to be experienced!  We are very excited to be bringing the high quality Zoup! brand to Quincy and look forward to serving its amazing soups and delicious sandwiches and salads to our community very soon.

Zoup! features hundreds of award-winning soup recipes with 12 rotating daily varieties, including low-fat, low-cal, vegetarian, dairy-free, and gluten-free options, all served with a hunk of freshly baked bread.

Customer favorites include Chicken Potpie, Lobster Bisque and Vegetarian Split Pea.  The menu also features made-to-order salads and sandwiches, and all menu items are available in convenient catering sizes for groups of 10 or more.

“In good times and bad, soup has powerful, intangible qualities that provide comfort and promote a genuine sense of well-being for many people,”

said Eric Ersher, Founder and CEO of Zoup! “We look forward to growing our brand and feeding the local appetite with the hand-crafted soups we all enjoy, but seldom have the time to make at home.”

In addition to its unique and diverse menu, Zoup! is built on a foundation of guiding principles called Zoup!isms. “Our Zoup!isms provide a framework for decision-making and help create a strong culture and brand image,”

Ersher explains. “They also dictate the brand’s uncompromisingly high standards and help guarantee the authenticity and quality of every pot, bowl and cup served.”

*About Zoup!*

Founded in 1998, Zoup! is the leading fast-casual soup concept restaurant that is defining the category with its premium and proprietary soups and other recipes. A dining experience that features 12 always-rotating soup varieties each day in an environment that focuses on comfort, satisfaction and convenience, Zoup! has grown its network of franchises to 68 restaurants throughout the District of Columbia, Colorado, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Virginia, and Ontario, Canada.
