In a surprise announcement, the Cassimus family, the founders of Zoës Kitchen, posted on social media their intention to reopen the popular Mountain Brook Crestline location ( 225 Country Club Park) which closed last month.

It’s Back!

Declaring on the @zoeskitchenbham Instagram page:

Original Zoës. 

Same owners. 

Same menu. 

John Cassimus also issued the following video statement on his personal Facebook page.

“In 1995. My mom Zoë, my dad Marcus opened the original Zoës Kitchen here in Birmingham, Alabama. A few years later, I started the company that ultimately grew to over 300 Zoës Kitchens around the United States. 

Recently, our good friends at Cava bought Zoës Kitchen. After converting some of the stores over to Cava, the decision was made to shelf the Zoës Kitchen brand moving forward. But great news. They’ve given me and my mom and dad the opportunity to resurrect the original Zoës Kitchen brand here in Birmingham, Alabama at the Crestline location, to all those fresh tasty and healthy, unique menu items you love so much. 

Follow us on social media. Check it out. Stay tuned.”

He then encourage fans of Zoës Kitchen to following their progress reopening the location on social media at Facebook and Instagram

A Birmingham original, it is great to see the Cassimus family bring back Zoës Kitchen.

We can’t wait to bite into their massive chocolate chip cookies, tasty roll-ups and one of a kind chicken salad.
