Make room for another Fresh Kitchen in South Tampa

Ciccio Restaurant Groupís other concept, Fresh Kitchen will complement itís current SoHo location with another site opening in the space previously occupied by Gogoís Greek Grill at 4616 W Kennedy Blvd towards the end of this month.

This not only is the chainís second South Tampa location, but sixth all together joining Sarasota, St. Petersburg, Boca Raton, and Orlando. Like Ciccio Cali, the concept is all about health and convenience offering protein and veggie customizable bowls all under $10. A four bowl is $8.29 and a six bowl is $9.99

"We believe in healthy-high quality ingredients and then convenience," said Steven Lanza, brand president for Fresh Kitchen.

"I donít think anyone is as fast as us. You can be in and out, and all of our meats are hormone and antibiotic free, we make everything in house, and we donít use any processed sugar."

Popular menu items include their sweet potato noodles, coconut rice, variety of vegetables and protein, roasted mushrooms and broccoli, and their broth bowl which is a vegan broth that can be added to your bowl has become a popular addition as well.

Steven Lanza believes itís hard for anyone to compete with their convenience aspect, the quality of food and the price point, and expects continued success with this new location.

Fresh Kitchen also features unique artwork from local artists at all of its locations and this one will feature a mural and more from local Tampa artist Bianca Burrows.

"Weíre excited about opening and every time we open a location it gives us an opportunity for people to grow and move up within our company," Steven Lanza said.
