Fresh(ii) restaurant opens

Freshii’s welcoming counter draws in customers with tantalizing toppers and add-ins to the variety of menu items.

Monday marked the opening of Freshii in Westport. Located at 1 Main Street, the healthy fast food restaurant has a very go-green vibe. According to the website, Matthew Corrin, founder of the fresh and earth-friendly store, set out to “eliminate the excuse that people don’t eat well because there’s nothing convenient or affordable.” The first Freshii store opened in Toronto in 2005, but there are now stores in 35 cities and 8 countries around the world.

One Freshii employee, visiting from Toronto in honor of the opening of the Westport store, spoke highly of the store’s opening day. “It was very busy and we received a lot of positive feedback,” he said.

The menu has a variety of salads, wraps, burritos, rice bowls, yogurts, breakfast and soups. This Toronto employee said that his favorite item on the menu is the baja burrito, filled with quinoa, avocado, red onions, cilantro, green onion, cabbage, salsa and pico de gallo.

Freshii focuses on being “good to the earth.” The website says that “everything you take from the store either biodegrades naturally to the earth or is easily recyclable.”

Freshii is open Monday-Sunday 7:00am-7:00pm in the heart of Westport downtown.

About the Contributor
Katie Reynolds, Staff Writer

Katie Reynolds, with her shoulder length brown hair and tan skin, might blend into a crowd of Staples students. But then you'll talk to her.

Katie Reynolds is unabashedly herself. She is one of the few people who can balance friendliness and sincerity; her sarcastic, honest bite goes nicely with an otherwise sugary sweet disposition. She'll tell you what she's thinking and why she's thinking it, and she's never going to apologize for that. “A writer has to be strong willed, stron enough to give their opinion and ask the right questions,” Reynolds said, a philosophy she lives by.

Reynolds is a much needed addition to the Inklings staff. Her persistence is admirable—— something she hopes will push the line of journalism to an even higher standard at Staples. And she's already started.

Her article “Concussion Repercussions”, which she worked on with classmate Emma Finn, proves the extent of her abilities. Written about the struggles faced between concussed students and strict teachers, Reynolds called it “her hardest article to date.” The extensive researched involved talking to Dr. Micheal Lee, five Staples students, and two teachers. Reynolds didn't bat an eye, easily talking to authority figures and peers alike with the same inherent charm.

Like most on Inklings, her favorite subject is English. Her favorite book is the critically acclaimed “The Language of Flowers”, an elegant book about an extraordinary woman who uses her talents to help others, though struggling through her own hardship as well. Perserverance is something admirable about Katie Reynolds, but also something she admires in others.

In her spare time, she plans events like weddings and bat mitzvahs. Each time, she's more determined to top herself, creating unforgettable bashes sure to amaze. She's unafraid of hard work.

In fact, I'm not sure she's afraid of anything. Like all things, she takes life as it comes, confident in her capabilities as a writer, and as a genuinely good person.
