To our CAVA fanatics,

    This holiday season we have something extra special to celebrate – and we’re excited to share our news with you.

    As we announced this summer, we took a bold step forward on our mission to share our Mediterranean culture, one mind-blowing meal at a time, by acquiring Zoës Kitchen – a Mediterranean brand that shares our passion for creating exceptional guest experiences.

    We’re excited to share today that Zoës Kitchen is now officially part of the CAVA team.

    As the Founders of this brand, we are incredibly proud of how far our little company has gone in the 11 years since we first opened CAVA Mezze in Rockville, Maryland.

    We know that without your support and fanaticism, none of this would be possible. From all of us and our 8,000 team members – thank you!

    Stay on the lookout for updates in the coming months as we set out together on this journey. And in the meantime, don’t worry. What you know and love about CAVA is not changing, including:

    • •  Our commitment to always delivering exceptional experiences to you.
    • •  Crazy Feta! Don’t worry, all your favorite menu items are here to stay.
    • •  Our plan to open more CAVA locations.
    • •  Our culture and brand – who we are and what we stand for – will stay the same. After all, our people are what made this opportunity possible.

    Our commitment to quality and to you, our guest, will always be number one. And we’re incredibly thankful for all your passion and support. Without it, we wouldn’t be where we are today.

    Ted, Ike, Chef D, and Brett
