The Freshii on Light Street downtown has closed. The other Baltimore location, on St. Paul Street in Charles Village, will remain open, the company says.
"Closing a restaurant is never something we want to do,'" said Freshii project manager Mia Jacobs in an emailed statement, "however it is the right move when it means we can refocus our efforts on other opportunities within the community, such as our Charles Village location."
Founded in 2005 in Toronto, Freshii provides a fast-food alternative with customer-created salads, wraps, soups and bowls. In 2008, the company opened its first U.S. store in Chicago. The Baltimore stores opened in 2011.
Jacobs said that Freshii will open a new location soon in Rockville.
