Grabbagreen, the Scottsdale, Arizona–based restaurant concept known for its super ingredient-inspired menu and fast atmosphere, announced a two-store development deal in Minnesota with franchise partner Rocky Osborn of Zoom Healthy LLC. Zoom Healthy will open their first location in Edina by the end of 2016. The second location will be located in Minneapolis.
"Our enthusiastic and dedicated franchisees contribute to our brand's growth, and helps solidify our vision of leading the charge in making healthy food," says Kim Cramton, senior vice president of operations and franchise development. "We are thrilled to have Rocky join the Minnesota market and know the Grabbagreen restaurants will satisfy a growing consumer demand in the Minneapolis community."
The whole food menu is preservative-free, naturally gluten-free, GMO-free, and semi-organic. 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 and acai bowls, breakfast, and healthy, kid-friendly items. All signature menu items are prepared fresh, made-to-order and provide a delicious experience for customers and a variety of flavors to meet dietary needs.
"Our overall goal is to provide healthy food, fast; making people's lives easier," says Keely Newman, CEO and founder of Grabbagreen. "While restaurants are just now trying to introduce a healthier option for customers, most are still overridden by a majority of options that are not good for you. At Grabbagreen, customers simply cannot make an unhealthy choice and we are excited to lead that charge."
