One of the fastest and hottest franchises in Canada, Freshii, will be opening in Brandon on Thursday, April the 5th. BDNMB.CA first reported back on May 25, 2017 that the health casual restaurant, serving fresh food, would be setting up shop in Brandon.
The Freshii concept seemed to be the perfect fit for Jody and Tyler Henry with their long history in the health and fitness industry.
The former owners of Body Force gym made the trip one day to Winnipeg to explore a current Freshii franchise. Upon seeing the menu, and the ingredients, they both felt this style of restaurant is something that Brandon could really benefit from.
“My goal was to make it good and affordable for someone to eat healthy” said Tyler Henry.
Also, Henry said that they can cater to people with almost any dietary requirements. and for people with crohns and colitis.
For Jody Henry, the process has been a bit nerve racking getting all the final details hammered out. “In the first three weeks we had 190 applications for staff. We were able to pick out the staff we wanted after listening to their stories and how we feel they will fit our brand” said Jody.
The Brandon location will occupy space inside the old Blockbuster location at 930-18th Street. Freshii is a Canadian fast-casual restaurant that serves burritos, wraps, soups, salads and frozen yogurt featuring fast, custom-built fresh ingredients.
