Freshii was founded by 29 year old Matthew Corrin back in 2005 in Toronto. Today the healthy and casual restaurant chain has grown to over 60 stores with 400 more in development.  Matt started out in the PR business but saw an opportunity in the restaurant industry, an industry he had no experience in. We had the chance to catch up with Matt at the New York City store opening to learn about how he got started and his advice for young entrepreneurs…
