CAVA Group announced today that it will acquire Mediterranean fast-casual Zoe’s Kitchen in a $300 million deal that will take Zoe’s private. The deal comes thanks to a “significant investment” in CAVA by a group led by Ron Shaich, Founder and ex-CEO of Panera. Brett Schulman, current CAVA CEO, will head up the combined companies while Shaich will serve as Chairman.
