Freshii has brought on three former NBA players as investors to help grow the area development territory of Houston, Texas. The role of the players is to help raise funds to expand the brand’s footprint in the area and bring on more franchisees.
Freshii, a leader in the healthful fast-casual segment, signed their first franchise in Germany.

The franchisee has signed on to open 20 units throughout the country and will be evaluating real estate for their first site in Jeddah.
Healthy fast-casual concept Freshii has expanded rapidly since Matthew Corrin founded the company in 2005. Now Corrin hopes to fuel the growth of likeminded food entrepreneurs by launching a business accelerator, the Fresh Startups program, in partnership with consulting company Kinetic Café.
“There is an increasing amount of interest and energy being spent in the healthy fast-casual arena,” Corrin says.
Freshii, a leading “health casual” restaurant chain featuring custom-made green wraps, salads, quinoa bowls, and fresh pressed juices is continuing its expansion efforts. Between now and New Year’s Eve, Freshii will open 16 new locations in new and existing markets.
