Freshii Is Opening in Boston's Financial District

A small chain of health-focused quick-casual restaurants that started out in Canada several years ago is planning to open a new location in the heart of Boston.

According to the Boston Business Journal, Freshii is going to be opening on Federal Street within The Landmark building (by the High Street intersection) in the Financial District, moving into a space across the lobby from Rebecca's. The article mentions that the new dining spot will offer fresh, healthy eats including soups, salads, burritos, wraps, rice and noodle bowls, and frozen yogurt, and it will be a "green" restaurant, with recycled paper and biodegradable packaging used.

Freshii first started out in Toronto in 2005, eventually moving its headquarters to Chicago. There are currently 40 locations in the United States, Canada, Austria, and Dubai. (Currently, the closest Freshii location to Boston is in Manhattan.)

Expect an August opening for Freshii, according to the Boston Business Journal.

[August 15 update: According to Marlo Marketing/Communications, Freshii is now open in Boston.]

The address for this new quick-food restaurant in the Financial District is: Freshii, 160 Federal Street, Boston, MA, 02110.
