Fressh will be the third major city centre eatery seeking to capitalise on the trend for plant-based menus and will take the former Yum Yum site on at the Union Street end of the City Arcade.

Company founder Vijay Singh, 27, says:

“Fressh food will be the benchmark for vegan choice in Birmingham. We want people to eat here primarily because they love the food and atmosphere, rather than just because it is meat free. Our aim is to promote a healthier more sustainable and ethical choice. Fressh will provide tasty food that’s good for them and a convenient, quick choice for food – not just for vegans and vegetarians. All of our food will be served in a fast-food style concept and also has seating up to 20 people.”

Vijay adds: “Birmingham city centre is the perfect place to offer healthy, delicious and wholesome plant-based food that fuels and energises without compromising flavour, taste or satisfaction in an ethical and sustainable lifestyle to the masses (not just vegans).”
