Marzena’s newest venture, soon to celebrate its one-year anniversary, is Freshii, and she is the first to bring a Freshii franchise to a mall location, located at the improved Erin Mills Town Centre, the only healthy food court location in Mississauga. Its aim is to help people on the go with living invigorated, healthier lives.
Eat. Energize. That’s the Freshii mantra. Freshii is a fast, casual restaurant concept that serves fresh food, with custom made meals to energize people on the go. Freshii features innovative menu items, with vegetarian and vegan options, including wraps made of Collard Greens, salads and numerous choices of bowls based of quinoa or rice, as well as healthy snacks, fresh pressed juices and smoothies. Think: slow burning carbs, healthy fats and lean proteins.
Freshii lives by their “Mission Green” motto –be good to the earth by eliminating traditional fast food practices, including excessive packaging, energy hungry dishwashers and appliances.
Marzena is a creative and innovative entrepreneur who believes healthy food feeds the body and the positive food experience feeds the soul. She knows that taste, texture, colour and presentation all play a role in that healthy experience. With Freshii catering, she helps bring co-workers, friends and family together, sharing camaraderie, love and laughter.
She is a Mississauga Arts Council Ambassador and and exceptional member of Canada-Poland Chamber of Commerce.
