Healthy restaurant chain Freshii will open its doors at The Bellevue Collection in Bellevue Square this spring, providing another eatery option to Downtown.

The store — which has more than 200 locations in more than 80 cities and 15 countries — offers salads, wraps, bowls, breakfasts and smoothies.

According to a press release, it will be the first Freshii store in the Puget Sound area.

Melissa Barnes, the Bellevue location’s franchise owner, said eating health consciously was something which would fit right in with the Eastside.

“Freshii caters to the millennial generation and all people who pay attention to the fuel they put into their bodies,” she said. “We know the community will welcome our brand and menu with open arms.”

The “fast, fresh food” model of Freshii is part of the business’ goal of making healthy food affordable and convenient, the release said.

The store will open on the second floor of The Bellevue Collection, located at 575 Bellevue Way NE.
