As the days become shorter and the temperatures grow cooler, more and more of us turn to the warmest and most inviting of comfort foods, soup. What’s even better than a bowl of soup? Soup in a bread bowl! For a limited-time, Zoup! is serving up three seasoned bread boules: Italian Herb, Olive Oil & Sea Salt and Parmesan Garlic.  These seasoned bread boules are sourdough boules brushed with extra virgin olive oil, and sprinkled with savory seasonings, and then toasted to perfection. The original sourdough Bread Boule is available year-round.


Founded in 1998, Zoup! is the leading fast-casual soup concept restaurant brand throughout the United States and Canada with more than 100 restaurants in 19 states and provinces. They offer customers with 12 always-rotating daily varieties of soup. Their menu includes a large variety including low fat, gluten-free, low calorie, vegetarian, dairy free, and spicy soups – each served with a hunk of freshly baked bread. Our favorites include Ginger Butternut Squash, Lobster Bisque, and Tomato Basil but you can find your own favorite by sampling our soups before you order. In fact, they encourage it! Small tasting cups allow guests to try any of the daily soups. We suggest you make sure to try the new Brewhouse Cheddar Soup, crafted with English Pale Ale and mellow cheddar then finished off topped with fresh grated cheddar cheese and green onions. Enjoy the Brewhouse Cheddar Soup and seasoned bread boules until November 12th!

“The Brewhouse Cheddar is a top-notch addition to our menu of tasty and filling soups,” said Zoup! founder and CEO Eric Ersher. “And our Seasoned Bread Boules pair perfectly with any of our soups, providing a unique combination of flavors to enjoy throughout the season.”

Bread Boules are ideal for thicker, creamier offerings, like the popular signature Chicken Potpie  topped with breadcrumbs and Lobster Bisque soup. Guests also enjoy filling their bread boules with Macaroni and Cheese, New England Clam Chowder, Loaded Baked Potato, or Broccoli Cheddar soup. The Parmesan Garlic Boule is recommended to pair best with zesty chilies like the Roadhouse Sirloin, and the Italian Herb Boule nicely complements classic Tomato Basil soup.


The menu at Zoup! also features a distinctive array of made-to-order salads and sandwiches, each made with fresh, high-quality ingredients. Zoup! Catering also supplies offices and group outings. Franchisee Paul Diaz opened the Plymouth Meeting location in April 1, 2015 at 500 W. Germantown Pike Main outside the mall. He owns three other local Zoup! restaurants. Paul and his wife Julie have lived in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area for more than 13 years. Zoup! is a proud member of the community and supporter of the Colonial School District. Other nearby Zoup! locations include Exton and Collegeville, PA. Monday, Oct. 30, when the newest Zoup! location will be opening at 970 Dekalb Pike, Blue Bell in the Center Square Commons shopping center.

“I first fell in love with Zoup! as a customer, so I know firsthand how addicting our fresh-made soups can be,” says franchisee Dan London, of the Zoup! location in Exton. “I worked for 10 years as a business developer overseas, but I always wanted to return home and open a business that would fill a need for my friends and neighbors. I’m looking forward to introducing Blue Bell to our warm, comforting and delicious soups and serving the community for years to come.”
