Zunzi's Zunzifest! Returns to Atlanta June 14

Monthly Appreciation Event Features Free Sandwiches and More


Zunzi’s, the fast-casual restaurant known for its South African-inspired sandwiches, bowls, and salads is hosting its next Zunzifest! on Tuesday, June 14. During this one-of-a-kind event, members of Zunzi’s text community are invited to show up at Zunzi’s to receive a free regular Conquistador or Rising Sun sandwich (vegan upon request) from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. This month, Zunzi’s is donating 26% of sales to Atlanta Pride.

“For fans who have not experienced Zunzifest!, it’s our most exciting event of the month,” says Zunzi’s owner Chris Smith. “We not only get to give back to our community by providing free sandwiches and showing our team some love, but we also get to raise money for a worthy cause. In June, we are supporting Atlanta Pride, Georgia's oldest non-profit agency serving the LGBTQ community in Atlanta and the Southeastern U.S.”

To join Zunzi’s text community and receive a link for details about the event, text “Zunzifest!” to 912-207-7551. On top of serving free Conquistador and Rising Sun sandwiches, Zunzi’s will once again be closing early at 5 p.m. to throw a special “thank you” party for Zunzi’s team.

Traditionally, Zunzifest! was held on the 26th day of each month, in honor of Z, the 26th letter of the alphabet. Now Zunzifest! takes place on the second Tuesday of the month to avoid November and December holidays so Zunzi’s can say THANK YOU! to the team, fans, and community every month.

Zunzi's first opened its doors in 2005 with the sole purpose of filling the tummies of college students at the Savannah College of Art & Design with home-cooked meals. Since then, Zunzi's South African-inspired menu has won the hearts of not only SCAD students but also locals and tourists visiting Savannah. By popular demand, Zunzi's expanded to Atlanta, Georgia, and opened a second location in May 2018. In 2021, Zunzi’s relocated its original Savannah location and added Zunzibar, its sister beach-bar concept. Zunzi's + Zunzibar is now focused on further expansion by franchising the hybrid concept in the Southeast. In 2022, Zunzi’s earned a spot on Fast Casual’s Top 100 Movers & Shakers list, and CEO Chris Smith was recognized among Fast Casual’s Top 25 Executives. In 2020, Smith was named among QSR’s “15 Young Restaurant Leaders to Watch.” In 2019, Zunzi’s landed on Thrillist’s compilation of “The 33 Best Sandwiches in America,” and the eatery’s Conquistador was named the best sandwich in Georgia on People magazine’s “Best Sandwich in Every State” list. In 2017, Zunzi’s secured a spot on Mental Floss’ list of “The Best Sandwiches in all 50 States” and BuzzFeed’s “34 Meals That are Actually Worth Traveling the World For.” Zagat also rated the Savannah location’s food a 4.6/5. The Conquistador was ranked among Men’s Journal’s “50 Best Sandwiches in America,” in 2015 and “Best Sandwich in the South” by Travel Channel’s Adam Richman in 2012.
