Zoës Kitchen Appeals to Generation Z with Adventurous New Kids Menu

Nutritious and Diverse Offerings Attract a “No Nugget Generation”

(NYSE: ZOES), a leading fast casual Mediterranean restaurant
group, is introducing an expanded kids menu developed with the eating
preferences of Gen Z in mind. The new menu, debuting on September 27,
offers more choices, nutrition, and adventure for this next generation
of foodies.

Post-millennials, whom the company views as the “no nugget generation,”
are open-minded eaters with sophisticated palates; global influences are
their norm. They desire more variety and meals that are
made-from-scratch, and tend to gravitate towards fast casual dining. The
new Zoës Kitchen kids menu offers wholesome and diverse selections for
their evolving taste buds.

“I’m a father of two daughters born in Generation Z. They love
experiencing new flavors, and gladly choose kabobs and hummus over
fries,” said Kevin Miles, CEO and President at Zoës Kitchen.
“Ultimately, they crave food that makes them feel good. I’m excited to
share our new kids menu with families who also value made-from-scratch,
nutritious options.”

Inspired by the Mediterranean food philosophy, dishes feature
ingredients such as whole grains, fresh vegetables, fruits, and seafood,
and incorporate grilling as the predominant method of cooking. Each
entrée is served with a choice of side, offering kids the opportunity to
create a custom, balanced meal. Entrées include:

  • Salmon or Shrimp Kabobs
  • Ham and Cheese Piadina made with fresh mozzarella and rosemary ham
  • Pizza Piadina made with mozzarella, parmesan, and a new Mediterranean
    tomato sauce
  • Orzo Pasta Bowl

Healthful side options include hummus, Greek salad, roasted veggies,
pesto farro, and fresh fruit.
