Arizona-based food+juice restaurant Grabbagreen announced a nationwide franchising opportunity. Grabbagreen is a nutritious restaurant concept that meets the speed and convenience of traditional fast food with a breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu packed full of super food ingredients.
Founded in 2012 by moms and childhood friends, Keely Newman and Kelley Bird, Grabbagreen serves organic food items including antibiotic- and hormone-free beef, poultry, and fresh-pressed juice. Newman and Bird found out very quickly they were not alone in the search of healthy food on the go after opening their first location in 2013. The large demand fulfilled an unmet need in the marketplace, growing the concept to three stores in less than two years.
“It is exciting to be involved in a cultural shift where people are looking for healthy food choices that are convenient, quick and taste great,” says Newman, CEO. “Our vision is to lead the charge in making fast food healthy, and we believe it’s a mission our brand builders will be excited to stand behind.”
Grabbagreen’s whole food menu contains both hot grains and cold greens, fresh proteins provided by local farms, whole food smoothies, fresh-pressed juices, and healthy kid-friendly items that are easy to grab on the go. The breakfast menu is packed full of clean options, and one, two, and three-day detox juice packages are also available for pick up.
“The future of fast food is just beginning in our eyes,” says Kim Cramton, vice president of operations and franchise development. Cramton herself has more than 25 years of experience in opening over 1,200 franchises for a national brand.
“Grabbagreen’s value resonates with consumers looking for a quick meal that is much healthier than normal fast food and less expensive than a fine-dining option. While we continue to develop our corporate stores footprint throughout the greater Phoenix area, we are focused on working with new franchise owners to realize the brand’s growth potential in new markets across the country,” Cramton says.
