about

Brad and Marcy’s lives were changed several
years ago when they discovered that you could
heal the body through food. This all started when they
were able to help their youngest child overcome some major health issues as a baby by simply changing his diet. This experience led to a lifelong commitment of healthy eating and living. As their 7 children grew older they were frustrated that they could never find a place to take their family to eat where they could trust everything on the menu.

They were first introduced to acai bowls in California in 2010 and quickly began plans to bring this concept to Arizona. This eventually led them to open the first Thrive in Gilbert, AZ in 2011 and then a 2nd location in Tempe, AZ in 2013. As Thrive began to grow in popularity they quickly realized the need to broaden their vision and prepare to expand to new markets. In an effort to avoid brand confusion they created the Genuine Fresche brand and the Chandler location opened in 2014.

The Olsen’s are passionate about sharing their love of healthy living with everyone that walks through the door and can often be found in one of their stores connecting with their loyal customers. They are so excited to continue building the Fresche brand and creating happier healthier communities wherever they go.
