2016 Second 100: Why Zoës Kitchen is the No. 4 fastest-growing chain

This is part of the Nation’s Restaurant News annual Second 100 report, a proprietary ranking of restaurant brands Nos. 101-200 by U.S. systemwide sales and other data. This special report is a companion to the Top 100 report.

Zoës Kitchen appears in the Second 100 for only the second time, but the fast-casual Mediterranean chain’s 27-percent growth in domestic systemwide sales kept it in the top five, although Freddy’s knocked the brand down a notch.

Zoës Kitchen ended the year with 166 domestic locations, rising nearly 26 percent year over year. The chain expects to open between 34 and 36 restaurants in 2016, representing unit growth of about 20 percent to 22 percent.
