Freshii, the global healthy eating fast food restaurant chain, and Applegreen, Ireland’s largest independent forecourt retailer, yesterday opened their fifth Freshii outlet in Applegreen Motorway Services at Rathcoole on the N7 from Dublin, writes Trish Whelan.
Applegreen currently operates Freshii food outlets in Applegreen Midway just outside Portlaoise on the M7, at Enfield Motorway Services on the M4 westbound, as well as two outlets on the M1 at Lusk (north and southbound).
Freshii is a health-casual restaurant brand that serves fresh food designed to energise people on the go. The diverse menu includes a wide range of foods including vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free and wheat free.
The menu also includes tossed salads with homemade salad dressings made fresh daily, hot bowls, burritos, healthy wraps, soups, fresh pressed juices, smoothies, frozen yogurt and breakfast.
Dave O’Donoghue, CEO of Freshii Ireland commented: “More and more people are becoming dashboard diners as they are eating meals on the go so it’s important for them to have healthy options on a journey.”
Freshii plan to become Ireland’s greenest fast food business.
Almost every Freshii food container a customer eats from will be fully compostable, degrading into the earth in just six to eight weeks with only organic matter left behind. New cutlery and straws are also made from eco-friendly plant starches which decompose quickly. Compost bins will be provided in store so that every item can be disposed of correctly.
The Freshii team pictured above at yesterday's launch are Laurel Benny, Inesta Dapkuviene, Jana Karpovic, Charlotte Lahert, and Agne Stanisauskaite.
