A restaurant franchise that prides itself on providing nutrient dense, environmentally friendly fast food is opening its first Sacramento area location in Folsom.
Freshii, voted best new retail concept in Canada when it opened its flagship location in 2005 in Toronto, will feature a breakfast, lunch and dinner menu, with items such as wraps, salads, brown rice bowls, soups and snacks, according to a company news release.
The Folsom location, at 2776 East Bidwell Street, Suite 500, will open Monday, complete with tastings and specials.
The quick-service restaurant will operate in a "build your own" format and meals will be available for pickup or delivery. Internet, e-mail and iPhone app ordering also will be available.
The business also features eco-friendly packaging made from vegetable starches and everything taken from the store either biodegrades or is recyclable.
Customers also may bring in their own bowls, which will be "happily washed and filled with Freshii's best," the release states.
A second Sacramento area location is planned in the coming year.
