Fresh Griller Brings Grillicious Flavors to Orange County!

Fresh Griller, a revolutionary fast casual restaurant concept, will be opening its first location in August 2012. Located in the McArthur Plaza in Santa Ana, Fresh Griller creates ‘farm to fork’ entrée creations using fresh, simple, and naturally raised ingredients that provide flavorful, antioxidant and nutrient-rich foods, all customized to order.

Fresh Griller’s dishes feature distinctly bold flavors infused through proprietary marinades. Choices include grilled steak, chicken and vegetarian entrees using flavors from around the world. Customers are invited to choose their own style, such as a bowls, wraps or salads. From there they can bring on the sizzle with a choice of steak, chicken or vegetables. Next, it’s time to pile on the ‘stuff,’ including a pepper and onion medley, white or brown rice, Ginger Pico de Gallo, Thai Kale Slaw, and Mediterranean Beans. Customers can then top off their one-of-a-kind creation with a choice of fresh made sauces, including Wasabi Ranch, Sweet Ginger Chili, Guava Chipotle BBQ and many others.

Optional sides also focus on fresh, simple, natural and delicious, and include options such as pita chips and hummus, Nature’s Candy, fruit and yogurt parfaits and assorted natural snacks. Drink options include fountain sodas made from pure cane sugar, loose leaf fresh brewed iced teas and various bottled natural craft beverages.

Fresh Griller’s focus on natural, simple, fresh and delicious extends to all aspects of its business, as shown in the incorporation of sustainable materials used to build the restaurant and the recyclable and compostable packaging. Fresh Griller operates by a ‘Grill of Rights’ to maintain high quality standards and ensuring customers that food is prepared with fresh ingredients and sustainable and natural products.

“At Fresh Griller, we use as many fresh and naturally produced ingredients as possible. Combined with simple preparations and the ability to customize your meals provides for bold and inspiring flavors, not the mundane” said John Costello, Managing Director. “We thought simple, natural, and fresh foods can taste great and be better for you because there is less between the farm and your fork. That means fewer pesticides, less processing, eliminating the ingredients that we simply cannot pronounce.”

In partnership with the Surfrider Foundation, Fresh Griller will host a week long celebration of its grand opening, offering complimentary food to the first 50 customers, a chance to win Fresh Griller meals for a year, as well as other “Grillicious” giveaways.  Located at 2 Hutton Center Drive, Santa Ana (in McArthur Plaza), Fresh Griller’s hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 11am to 8pm.
