Another Freshii is set to open in Sacramento, this time with a frozen yogurt bar.
Eric Heffel, owner of Yogurtagogo, is opening the region's second Freshii on Monday, company officials announced in a news release. The location, at 3rd and Q streets near Chocolate Fish Coffee, will be the first to offer a self-serve frozen yogurt bar and craft bottled beer and wine by the glass.
Freshii, a quick-service restaurant franchise, features nutritious salads, burritos, wraps, rice bowls, yogurts and soups in a customizable format. The company also prides itself on eco-friendly packaging made from vegetable starches.
The region's first Freshii opened mid-February in Folsom and has been met with good reviews by Yelpers and bloggers. Sacramento Connect bloggers Catherine Enfield and Kimberly Morales, of Munchie Musings and Poor Girl Eats Well respectively, were impressed by the environmentally-friendly approach and healthy ingredients.
"Kimberly and I are excited that there is such a healthy, fast alternative out there now," Enfield wrote on her blog. "It is possible to eat that way while dining out. Since we live downtown, we can't wait for the second location."
Monday's grand opening celebrations include freebies and specials. To learn more about Freshii, check out the company's website.
