“This ribbon cutting marks the beginning of a new chapter for Freshly and for our community. We look forward to increased access to fresh food, more job opportunities in Howard County, and a stronger local economy,” said Ball. “I also want to thank Howard County Economic Development Authority for working with Freshly to help us make this new facility a reality.”
"When we started our national expansion and what made sense for our East Coast facility, Savage quickly became the obvious choice for Freshly," said Freshly CEO and Co-Founder, Michael Wystrach.

We're excited to continue growing and working with the wonderful people of Savage in our company's next chapter."
