Raleigh, North Carolina, is getting greener next week when Grabbagreen, the Arizona-based restaurant concept known for its fresh and healthy alternative to fast food, makes its North Carolina debut under Heather and Jeff Phillips of Phillips Investment Ventures, LLC. Grabbagreen will open September 26 in Midtown Raleigh at 4421 Six Forks Road, Suite 103B inside North Hills. This is the first of two locations for Phillips Investment Ventures; with a second location coming to Cary, North Carolina, in 2017.

Grabbagreen is fully committed to leading the charge in making fast food healthy and promotes an "Eat Clean, Grabbagreen" philosophy. It is the first fast-food concept of its kind in the country serving organic food items, antibiotic and hormone-free beef and poultry, whole food, fresh juice and smoothies in the country. In addition customers are able to choose from high-quality food at reasonable prices, gluten-free, whole fruits and vegetables and select organic items. The modern decor and energetic ambiance appeals to everyone from children to adults.

"There is a growing demand for fresh, whole food in our Raleigh community and we are excited to open the doors and fuel both residents and visitors that frequent North Hills," says Heather Phillips. "People are constantly searching for fresh and nutritious food that leaves them feeling great. At Grabbagreen, you simply can't make an unhealthy choice and we look forward to the Raleigh community embracing this convenient concept for their on-the-go lifestyles."

Grabbagreen is prepared fresh, made-to-order and provide a delicious experience for customers with a variety of flavors to meet dietary needs. Grabbagreen offers a full selection of grain and green-based bowls with fresh hormone-free and antibiotic-free proteins provided by local farms. Fresh-pressed juice, handcrafted smoothies, acai bowls, breakfast and healthy, kid-friendly items round out the healthy choices.

In addition to the new Raleigh store, Grabbagreen currently has three locations in Arizona and opened its first franchise location in Tennessee last week. The franchise has executed 60 franchise agreements and 174 development agreements since April 2015 with plans to open 14 additional locations across the US this year in Florida, Texas, California, North Carolina, Minnesota, Colorado, Idaho, New Jersey, Tennessee, and Arizona.
