With today's side deal, $12 gets you $25 toward custom- or chef-designed entrees, hot breakfast wraps, non-fat frozen yogurt, and more from Freshii, which has locations in Village Center Station and Republic Plaza.
Featuring a fully customizable menu stocked with more than 70 fresh and wholesome ingredients, Freshii allows incoming digesters to build their own salads, wraps, bowls, soups, and more. Commence morning noshing with breakfast combos, for which you can pair a coffee with a breakfast wrap such as the bacon, egg, and cheese ($4.29) or couple a refreshing tea with slow-cooked organic oatmeal (includes two toppings, $4.89). Invigorate a lazy lunch hour with a delicious fiesta wrap ($6.89), its Cajun chicken flanked by a flavorful piñata of sweet corn, black beans, brown rice, and avocado, and then cap off the revelry with fat-free frozen yogurt topped with mango and banana ($4.99).
Freshii's energizing, healthy, and flavorsome meal options will enchant the busy office knight who is used to consuming drive-thru turkey legs that stain chainmail neckties. Each storefront is relaxed, welcoming, and built with sustainability in mind, and all the packaging is biodegradable.
Matthew Corrin was fashion designer Oscar de la Renta's marketing manager, which meant a lot of long hours and a lot of hurried lunches. After his umpteenth greasy sandwich, Corrin began wondering why there weren't more convenient, waistline-friendly lunch alternatives. This rumination—and a resignation letter to de la Renta—begot Freshii, a fast, casual eatery that serves healthy meals and has graced the pages of various publications, including the Chicago Tribune and Inc.’s 30 Under 30 list. Environmental awareness also plays a big part in the business model as the food packaging is made from eco-friendly vegetable starches.
Every Freshii kitchen is stocked with the base ingredients of brown rice, romaine lettuce, field greens, spinach, and rice noodles; toppings such as carrots, broccoli, grilled tofu, and candied walnuts; and an array of dressings and sauces. Using these ingredients, the chefs create bowls, wraps, salads, soups, and burritos for lunch and dinner. During morning hours when the sun is still busy curling its rays, they scramble eggs, serve housemade oatmeal, and top fat-free frozen yogurt with a choice of fruit. Customers can bring their own bowls, and the staff will wash and fill them with fresh ingredients hailing from environmentally responsible farms that fairly compensate their workers.
