Bozii’s coming downtown. You can now get natural, made-from-scratch items in the Ren Cen food court


A sense of food purity has come to one of Detroit’s most iconic buildings, as bozii (pronounced BO-zee) has set up shop in the Renaissance Center’s food court. With a focus on natural ingredients and from scratch cooking, it is certainly a more focused idea for food courts.

A Windsor-based company, bozii already has several locations in metro Detroit, in Dearborn, Auburn Hills, and Clinton Township, but the Ren Cen is the first location ion Detroit proper. It is open Monday through Friday from 6:30 am to 7:00 pm to pick up their portable entrees and menu selections.

“Our one promise we make to each of our guests is that there’s nothing fake in our food,” said Michael Steffke, director of U.S. operations for bozii. “We take tremendous pride in the fact that we offer what most can’t – natural ingredients with no preservatives or chemicals. All of our poultry is organic, and we use nothing but premium ingredients to make our food.”

The menu is prepared for multiple appetites, with four breakfast bozzi’s (quiches), four desserts, and nine entrees. Also available are salads, soups, and smoothies. Even organic sodas are on the menu, along with special options for vegetarian or vegan diets. Costs for these meals range from $2.49 – $4.69 for a premium selection, like roasted tenderloin or crab cake. Vegan and vegetarian options are also available.

Local companies as well as nationally known organic food suppliers will provide products the restaurant.

Great Lakes Coffee Roasting Company’s 313 blend is the official blend for all coffee drinks, including espressos and cappuccinos. Also available are six flavors of Maine Root organic soda and two varieties of Jackson’s Honest organic chips.

“Guests already enjoy our food, but as they learn more about our philosophies and business practices, we’re certain a love will develop,” said Steffke. “We are as proud of the reclaimed wood used in the restaurant and commitment to recycled products as much as we are of the organics and locally sourced items. To us, everything needs to be done right – not just the food.”
