Plymouth Meeting, Pa. Fameco Real Estate, L.P. said Wednesday that Freshii has signed its first area lease for 1,200 sq. ft. at The Residences at the Ritz, in Philadelphia.
The Toronto, Canada-based eaterie, which focuses on organic fast-food alternatives, currently operates 60 stores in 18 cities.
Fameco’s Brandon Famous and Marc Mandel are spearheading Freshii’s store rollout in the Delaware Valley. “The Residences at the Ritz is a great flagship location for Freshii,” said Mandel. “It’s a very prominent location across from City Hall with a solid mix of pedestrian traffic from the office population, to tourists to local residents.”
Freshii expects to roll out as many as 10 new stores in 2011. Stores range in size from 150 sq. ft. to 1,500 sq. ft.
