A franchise of Freshii, a Canadian Chicago chain restaurant with a mantra (“Let’s eat without regret. Let’s love kale. Let’s embrace quinoa.” etc.), is open at 1335 S. Main St. in Bentonville. Its grand opening is Tuesday, July 17.  (We previously said the opening date was July 17.)

Paul Hardin of Springdale Bentonville, a partner in the restaurant, announced the opening date on Facebook and said there would be a BOGO (buy one, get one) offer that day.


Freshii serves up a health-conscious menu of “superfoods” — the aforementioned vegetables and others — vegetarian burritos, soups, noodle bowls and dishes with brown rice. Frozen yogurt, too. The restaurant will be open daily: 6 a.m.-8 p.m. weekdays, 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
