CAVA is headed to Franklin, the first one in Williamson County.
The Mediterranean culinary brand will be opening in the former Zoe’s location at 3058 Mallory Lane, according to the CAVA website.
There are two other locations of CAVA in the area – The Mall at Green Hills and Fifth + Broadway in downtown Nashville.
Back in 2018, CAVA acquired Zoe’s Kitchen. In a release, CAVA announced it would be converting twelve restaurants in early 2021 to CAVA with more to convert at the end of 2021.
The Franklin location is expected to open in mid-November, CAVA told us.

CAVA was created by three first-generation Greek Americans who are childhood friends who wanted to bring the authentic Mediterranean flavors and experiences of their Greek upbringing to a wider audience in a modern, accessible format.
The trio then partnered with CAVA CEO Brett Schulman to grow the company. Together, CAVA has evolved into an organization with more than 60 chef-casual restaurants and a successful line of chef-crafted dips and spreads sold in more than 250 Whole Foods Market locations and other specialty grocery stores around the country.
