    Just like the title says.

    For example let's say I have 50 files that need zipping. I want each one to be zipped, but not grouped into one giant zip with the others. Can anyone help me! Thanks.

    Sounds like a job automator or a shell script

    Yes, it does answer your question. There is no application that does this. A job automator or a shell script is the most likely solution.

    This should be easily accomplished on the command line with something along the lines of

    Code:
    for i in <list of files to zip>; do zip $i $i; done
    
    You can also use the * character to reduce typing out the list of files.

    Code:
    for i in *.txt; do zip $i $i; done
