Freshii offers a menu of salads, burritos, wraps, rice bowls, yogurts, breakfast and soups made with high-quality, fresh ingredients. A staple on film sets, in offices and dining room tables in Los Angeles, Toronto, Chicago and across the globe – we think we’re definitely onto something, too. We operate 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 the added focus on health and wellness.
Vegan meal options available
STORYTELLING- From the owner
While working as the Marketing Manager for fashion icon Oscar de La Renta in New York City, Founder Matthew Corrin frequented the many corner ‘mom and pop’ delis on his lunch breaks. After one too many unhealthy lunches, Corrin set out to add magic to the fresh food business. The idea? To create a model that was scalable, branded and would ultimately change the way people eat, for the better. The mission was clear: to eliminate the excuse that people don’t eat well because there’s nothing convenient or affordable. With mission in hand, Freshii opened its first store in Toronto in 2005 met by massive lines.
Through our vision of ‘Eat. Energize.’ Freshii is focused on providing fresh and nutritious meal choices that energize people on the go.
- Everything you take from the store either biodegrades naturally to the earth or is easily recyclable.
- Shaking your meal in a biodegradable bag means we produce 5 to 7 times less of a carbon footprint than running even the most energy efficient dishwasher.
- Most of our packaging is made from eco-friendly vegetable starches, like corn or potatoes. It biodegrades quickly, leaving behind only carbon dioxide, biomass, and water.
- As we grow, our stores are built smaller to use less materials, use more eco-friendly materials, consume less energy, and to take less from the Earth.
- Our setup is simple: no energy-hungry dishwashers, hoods, ranges or ovens.
- We make use of online and mobile ordering and paperless marketing.
- We use only eco-friendly, natural cleaning products.
Freshii cares about giving back. We support several organizations in the community. However, due to the large number of requests we receive, we cannot honor all of them. We have annual commitments to our core causes and charities.
