My wife and I were invited to the official launch of Freshii in Belfast. The restaurant is housed in the old Sony Centre in Donegall Square West and it’s a fantastically designed space. The mantra for the Canadian started, global health casual restaurant, that is Freshii is: Eat.Energize and it’s perfect.
The Irish franchise CEO is Dave O’Donoghue who said “Freshii’s core mission is to help people live healthier and better lives by making nutritious food convenient and affordable and the reaction in Ireland has been phenomenal so far. We are really excited about growing the Freshii brand in Northern Ireland – we are investing and creating over 100 jobs while satisfying consumer demand for healthy food.”
We tried the chicken Cobb and chicken market wraps, mini Khao San burrito,mighty detox and carrot zinger juice, peanut energy bar and took a chicken Mediterranean bowl home to share with our kids, who by the way loved it as did we. I must say we thought that this restaurant idea is a very healthy alternative to fried fast food, loaded with salt, bad fats and empty calories and nutrition devoid fayre currently on offer!!
Freshii offers a delicious and diverse menu including breakfast, tossed salads, hot bowls, burritos, healthy wraps, soups, fresh pressed juices, smoothies and frozen yogurt, that energise people on the go, served in an eco-friendly environment.
