Unique sealed sandwiches with an edge.
Not long after graduating from college, Zookz’s owner, Carole Meyer, began to hone that talent with the opening of a very successful cafe and catering business in Florida. After a number of customers started asking to buy one of her salad dressings, she decided to market it through Publix, a major grocery store chain in the state. When Carole later moved to Phoenix, she expanded her sauce line to include four sauces, which she sold at AJ’s markets. During all these years, however, the taste of those sandwiches she had enjoyed as a child in that North African kitchen stayed with her. To her, they were the ultimate sandwiches—crunchy and warm with endless filling possibilities .
After 18 months of trial and error, Carole has now succeeded in re-engineering the handheld device her grandmother used into the electric version that has given birth to ZOOKZ. In addition, she has married her own distinctive sauces with those round toasted sandwiches of her youth, to create unique combinations of incredibly savory tastes and textures that are now ZOOKZ “sandwiches with an edge.” By offering high quality, fresh sandwich creations that can be prepared with amazing efficiency, ZOOKZ caters to today’s ever on-the-go consumer, who wants quality above all, but is also unwilling, and often unable, to compromise convenience.
