  • Chicago, IL (1888PressRelease) May 11, 2012 - There's a lot of goodness going around at Chicago's favorite stop for nutrition-conscious people on the go. Freshii is gearing up to honor its four-year anniversary in Chicago with a celebration from June 11 - 17 at all six locations. With their national franchise business also on a healthy track, having just nabbed a top 10 spot on Fast Casual magazine's Top Movers & Shakers List, they are making a major impact in the restaurant industry and have carved out a true healthy-casual niche.

    According to CEO Matthew Corrin, Freshii was created in response to a need for convenient, healthy food options: "Freshii operates in an emerging industry we call 'health-casual.' It has all the elements of fast casual (high quality food that's quick and convenient) with an added focus on health and wellness. We wanted to give people nutritious food with plenty of options so they can design a meal that fits their individual tastes and busy, urban lifestyles."

    Freshii, whose U.S. operations are based in Chicago, opened its inaugural location at 311 S. Wacker in June 2008. Since then, they've added five more locations to the area. David Grossman, a Chicago native and Freshii's first "Master Franchisor" in the U.S., attributes much of their success to his hometown. With experience working with the top brands in the country and having opened 120 Subways in Chicago, he has emerged as a definitive talent in the restaurant industry and the local real estate market. "I traveled the country looking for the next big thing and looked at many different concepts…Freshii had, by far, the most potential. I knew with the right location, the best team and local food sourcing, we could make it a huge success."

    Grossman's intuition was right. The Freshii store at 200 W. Monroe St. in the Loop is the highest volume store in the chain. Out of 50 total stores across the world, the six Chicago stores are all in the top 10 highest grossing locations in the company.

    From June 11 - 17, in celebration of their anniversary and to express gratitude to their Chicago fans, Freshii is offering Buy One Get One Free breakfast options (like Spinach & Goat Cheese Wraps and low fat Yogurt Parfaits) before 11 a.m.. Customers that drop by after 2 p.m. are treated to a free frozen yogurt with the purchase of one. To keep both body and budget in balance they will also have $5 lunch specials, featuring a different deal each day.

    Freshii will also be collecting donations and informing customers about Imerman Angels, a charitable organization that provides one on one support for cancer fighters, survivors and caregivers.
