Their franchise agreement ran its course, and the owner (who also owns other successful fast food places in town) decided that it wasn't worth re-upping with Steak N Shake.

We give a ton of money to Airports and to promote air travel. We talk about being "green" so what do they want me to do "drive" to Chicago and use up a bunch of gas and pollute the air?

Must be a Corp. thing. I was in there a couple of Sunday's ago and there was line waiting to get in with all the tables full. This was before noon. Doesn't make sense to me.

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.
