Update: Freshii opened in late November. Hours are Monday through Friday from 7 am to 7 pm, Saturday from 10 am to 7 pm, and Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm.
There's a fresh and healthy new option coming to Mueller. Freshii, a health-focused chain will open its first Austin outpost later this year.
The menu features a wide range of breakfast, lunch, and dinner options like wraps, burritos, soups, salads, bowls, juices, smoothies, and frozen yogurt. Most of these can be customized with fresh ingredients and dressings, ensuring that diners with all kinds of diets can find something to enjoy.
"People in Austin care about what they are putting into their bodies, and we will make it easy for them to eat healthy without sacrificing flavor. Freshii is all about healthy living, making good choices, and energizing your body with fresh food. Those things have always been important to me and are important to so many Austin locals," said local franchise owner Melissa Williams in a statement.
The only thing faster than Freshii's food is how fast the chain is growing. The first location opened in Canada in 2005; by the end of this year, there will be over 300 spots in 20 countries.
Freshii isn't the only restaurant opening soon in the Mueller district. Colleen's Kitchen and Bao'd Up are scheduled to debut in 2017 on Aldrich Street, which is turning into quite the dining destination.
Look for Freshii at 1200 Barbara Jordan Blvd. near Interstate Highway 35 in late 2017.
