A big Limerick welcome to Freshii, the leading global healthy eating fast food restaurant chain, who this week opened on 12 Thomas Street creating 10 full time and part time jobs.
Since opening its first store in 2005, Freshii has grown to over 300 stores located across 85 cities in 20 countries.
Freshii is one of the fast-growing restaurant brands in the world, serving a healthy and customisable menu built around high-quality fresh ingredients. 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.
Freshii was founded in the US by Matthew Corrin while working in New York City for fashion designer Oscar de la Renta. Inspired by “mom-and-pop” delis with fresh food but lackluster branding & service, he sought to “add magic to the fresh food business” & brand the commodity of fresh food not unlike Starbucks branded the coffee bean.
Corrin was a recipient of the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award, Canada’s Top 40 under 40, Inc. Magazine’s Top 30 under 30, and Canadian Association of Foodservice Professionals Restaurateur of the Year.
In 2013, he was featured on the hit TV show, Undercover Boss as the youngest CEO in the show’s history. In 2015, he featured as a dragon on CBC’s newest show in the Dragons Den – the Next Gen Den – which focuses on mobile, millennial entrepreneurs. Matthew has been featured in Fortune Magazine, CNN and Bloomberg television.
Dave O’Donoghue, CEO of Freshii Ireland said: “We are really excited about opening in Limerick. Freshii’s core mission is to help people live healthier and better lives by making nutritious food convenient and affordable and we are well on track to open between 40-50 stores across Ireland with five years.”
