Zoës Kitchen is opening its next Charlotte-area restaurant in Matthews next week.
This will be the first Matthews location for the fast casual Mediterranean chain. The restaurant will open at 11 a.m. Sept. 28 at 2309 Matthews Township Parkway, near Interstate 485.
To celebrate the grand opening, Zoës will be giving away free plastic sports cups and will offer free refills during its entire first month, the company said in a statement Friday. The restaurant will also do giveaways on social media, such as buy-one-get-one free meals for a year.
Zoës Kitchen’s menu includes kabobs, pitas and salads, along with vegetarian items, wine and beer.
The chain has other locations in Huntersville, SouthPark, Blakeney and midtown at the Metropolitan.
