April 30, 2014 // Franchising.com // Zoopa Organic CEO says that he will not use conventional produce. He further indicates that he believes people are willing to pay a little extra for real, organic food according to ToDoBlue LLC.
Organic produce sales have increased in double digit annual growth for the last 12 years. Zoopa Organic CEO, Jerrod Sessler, was diagnosed with terminal cancer nearly 15 years ago. He didn’t do conventional medical treatment and to this day refused to consume conventional produce. He also chooses not to use it in his new restaurant even though profits could be better if he did.
Jerrod Sessler commented in a recent interview, "Organic produce tastes better, it is more nutritious and I believe people will have a better experience in our restaurant because we use organics. I won’t eat conventional produce and forcing our guest to would seem like a double standard to me."
Sessler even changed the name of the restaurant he owns from Zoopa to Zoopa Organic to demonstrated the seriousness with which he approaches this topic. "Many people think that the organic processes are something new. The truth is that everything was, at one time, organic. The current organic movement is really a fight against all the rifling that has been going on in the growth and production of what we call food today. People are tired of eating junk and the ill effects it is having on their bodies. We are changing that," says Jerrod Sessler.
It isn’t that organics are here to stay, it seems that organics were here first. Good job Jerrod Sessler and Zoopa Organic for taking health back to the roots for the community around Zoopa Organic and future franchised locations of Zoopa Organic.
Zoopa Organic is an all-you-can-eat soup, salad, and bakery buffet that offers organic vegetables and salads (offered daily), along with house-made soups, pizzas, and baked goods. Zoopa was previously operated by Fresh Choice, a California corporation which was forced to reorganize in 2012, resulting in all Zoopa locations closing. Zoopa was revived by a Seattle local, Jerrod Sessler, who is passionate about health and providing real food options to the community. Zoopa has re-emerged as a franchised business and anyone looking to gain information about Zoopa Organic or becoming a Franchise Partner can find more information by emailing info(at)eatzoopa(dot)com or calling 206-575-0500.
