Global Healthy Eats Chain Freshii To Close Last Remaining San Diego Location

January 24, 2023

A fast-casual, health-focused chain with over 400 locations around the world, Freshii has announced it will soon close its last remaining San Diego branch in Pacific Beach.

Freshii is the brainchild of entrepreneur Matthew Corrin, who opened his first location in Toronto in 2005 at the age of 23. The company now has over 400 branches around the globe, including in Canada, the United States, Mexico, Colombia, Guatemala, Sweden, Austria, Switzerland, Ireland and United Arab Emirates. Freshii is a "healthy fast food" franchise with a market component, offering a menu that includes a variety of burritos, wraps, soups, bowls, salads and frozen yogurt for dine-in or take-out, as well as breakfast options, juices, smoothies, and daily meal boxes at most locations. 

The first San Diego location of Freshii was opened in Pacific Beach in June 2018 by franchise partners Chris Allen, Alex Black and John Christiansen. The team opened additional area Freshii locations near Spreckels Theatre in downtown San Diego and on University Avenue in Hillcrest, but both closed during the pandemic. The Pacific Beach branch at 1380 Garnet Avenue will permanently shutter on Friday, January 27.
