The healthy, fast-casual powerhouse Grabbagreen continues to pave the way as they lead the charge of making fast food healthy and expand throughout the East Coast. The Arizona-based brand has just completed a development agreement with Paul Stephen Hudson and Bernard Ciszewski of BeinGreen Inc. out of Maplewood, New Jersey, bringing 20 new locations to the state over the next 10 years.
"We are out to change the perception of fast food, offering fresh, whole, and sustainable food consumers are craving," says Keely Newman, founder and CEO of Grabbagreen. “The continued interest of like-minded entrepreneurs becoming franchisees solidifies more than ever, that customers are choosing healthier foods for their on-the-go lifestyles. We are extremely excited to welcome Hudson and Ciszewski to the Grabbagreen family. They make an incredible team and they will be tremendous champions for our brand in the New Jersey community."
In 2015, the Arizona-based company has signed multiple deals from coast to coast. In addition to the three current company-owned stores, the pipeline of committed franchise stores since Grabbagreen's franchise announcement in late April now contains more than 22 franchise agreements signed and more than 175 development agreements that are slated to open over the next several years in Arizona, Texas, California, North Carolina, South Carolina, Colorado, Idaho, New Jersey, and Tennessee.
