Fresh Healthy Cafe coming to BoDo

FRESH Healthy Cafe, a chain of fresh, healthy cafes... is set to open a location in Boise's BoDo, in the space formerly occupied by Helly Hansen. 

The eatery features wraps, smoothies, salads and bowls. Most of its current locations are on the east coast, with a smattering in Denver and the LA areas. This is the first outlet planned for the northwest.

Building permits have been applied for and construction should start soon in the 1,790 square foot space - with $175,000 in improvements on deck.

FRESH isn't to be confused with "freshii" - a similar concept which just opened on campus at Boise State.
