Our team has worked extremely hard to create a system for Freshii that can be easily scaled and replicated across the nation. We have addressed all areas of the Freshii business model – site selection, supply chain, cost control, build-out timing, marketing and buzz creation - to ensure that each market across the country can be easily opened, rapidly grown, and successfully and profitably operated. Our goal is to expand throughout the country by teaming with passionate partners who share in our mission to establish Freshii as the most convenient destination for healthy meals and snacks, served quickly while maintaining the highest quality of service and style.

Whenever a guest tells me that they love Freshii so much, that they crave it on the weekends
Customization and offering Superfoods like Kale and Quinoa
When the store is packed and there is no place to sit and people are happily standing in line to order (I get a little choked up)
Freshii stands out because it really has something for everyone, young and old. While we are healthy we are also delicious and simple so most everyone can easily find many things they like and want to try.
After helping create the Juice Cleanse LTO, having customers come in after and rave about their success with it and how they can’t wait to do it again or have a few of their friends do it with them again was a great moment for me. Knowing that something that I helped create positively impacted our customers across the entire Chicago Region!
The culture. Everyday my team and I come to work with a positive, playful, and focused attitude towards delivering the best product and experience possible. Not many brands in the fast casual industry have such a light demeanor. Customers can genuinely believe in the excitement we create everyday.
