Fuel, the local fast-casual chain that offers up a menu of wraps, sandwiches, smoothies and more, all under 500 calories (and some made with produce grown in their very own greenhouse in North Philly!), has revamped their Midtown Village location and they’re debuting the location tomorrow, April 14th, with — wait for it — free smoothies for all! Yippee!

Over the last month or so, you might have noticed some construction going down at the Fuel outpost at 1225 Walnut Street. That’s because owner Rocco Cima decided that after seven years of service, it was time to update the location’s look. You can pretty much expect all new everything, from seating to wall dressings to the serving counter. OH! And for all the Rocky lovers out there, they’ve installed a Rocky mural. One of Cima’s goals for this revamp is to allow Fuel to host more student groups, community organizations and private events.

In addition to renovations to the restaurant’s appearance, their menu will be enhanced with monthly specials. On the menu this month: the Fuel Tropical Salad, a Spring Flatbread and a Strawberry Cream Smoothie, pictured above (YUM).

Now, about those smoothies. To celebrate their relaunch and unveil the changes, Fuel will be offering free smoothies at the newly updated Midtown Village location this Friday, April 14th, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and a free appetizer with your entree purchase from 5 p.m. to close. You can check out Fuel’s menu here.
