Zoes Kitchen and American Airlines have teamed up to introduce a new food-for-sale menu for customers seated in Main Cabin that will offer delicious, light and healthy choices onboard.

The new menu, designed in collaboration with Zoes head chef and Vice President of Culinary Innovation Antonio Iocchi, includes items unique to American as well as signature dishes found in Zoes restaurants, such as its signature hummus and The Gruben sandwich. The new items will be available for purchase on most domestic flights longer than three hours beginning December 1.

“Zoes mission to deliver goodness from the inside out and their ‘simple, tasty, fresh’ offerings made it an easy decision to partner with the fast-casual, healthy restaurant group,” said Janelle Anderson, Vice President of Global Marketing for American Airlines. “Our customers have asked for lighter tasty food choices. This collaboration with the expert chefs at Zoes provides an innovative, fresh approach to onboard offerings.”

“Together with American, we are excited to elevate the in-flight dining experience and deliver goodness to millions of customers by offering our chef-inspired menu items, in a fresh, new way,” said Kevin Miles, President and Chief Executive Officer of Zoes Kitchen. “Our goal in our restaurants is to provide delicious, wholesome food, inspired by the flavors of the Mediterranean and for our guests to feel good and motivated to live life to the fullest after dining with us.”

The new items launching December 1 include:

—Breakfast Sandwich: Turkey bacon, egg slices and tomato topped with baby arugula on a waffle brioche bun with Calabrian pepper aioli.

—Continental Breakfast Box: Belgian waffle, hazelnut spread, and fresh berries.

—The Gruben: Zoes signature sandwich with sliced turkey, Manchego cheese, crunchy Mediterranean slaw, and feta spread layered on marble wheat bread, served with a Zoes chocolate chip cookie.

—Chicken Wrap: Grilled chicken wrap with mozzarella, roasted tomatoes, arugula, and artichokes, served with a Zoes chocolate chip cookie.

—Hummus Duo: Zoes signature hummus duo, including their classic flavor topped with Kalamata olives and basil pesto hummus, served with pita bread, cucumber and carrot.

Along with the new Zoes options, American will continue to offer its signature fruit and cheese plate and breakfast platter. Throughout 2019, American and Zoes will continue to collaborate and introduce additional items in Main Cabin as well as domestic first-class service.
