After nearly a decade in business serving the Peachtree City community, Zoes Kitchen has closed permanently as of Wednesday, March 1. The restaurant, located at 2777 West Highway 54, opened in 2014; but following Cava’s 2018 acquisition of Zoes, it will now, like so many other former Zoes, be converted into a Cava. While both Cava and Zoes focus on a Mediterranean menu, the two concepts are quite different, with Cava focusing nearly exclusively on bowls and serving them in a Chipotle-like assembly line format.
The Peachtree City and Emory Village restaurant in Atlanta were the final two Zoes Kitchens operating in the state. Both restaurants were to close after dinner service last night and reopen in “about eight weeks” as Cava.
In addition to the two Georgia locations, other Zoes Kitchen restaurants in Greenville, North Carolina, and Elmwood, Louisiana, are also slated to close. Another location at The Summit in Louisville, Kentucky, was reportedly slated to close, but both the website and local employees suggest that it is now staying open.
The Cassimus family, Marcus and Zoe and son John, reopened the original Zoes in the Birmingham community of Crestline February 15 and with it brought back the original menu.
