Grabbagreen, the Arizona-based restaurant concept known for its healthy and organic alternative to fast food will make its much anticipated Charlotte, North Carolina, debut on January 11 under Jeff and Nancy Adams of JNZR Investments, LLC. Grabbagreen is located at 210 East Trade Street, Suite B-124 in the EpiCentre; a leading entertainment destination and mixed-use neighborhood of Uptown Charlotte. The EpiCentre location is the first of five locations JNZR will open in the Charlotte area. Adams’ second location is set to open in March 2017 in the Ballantyne area at 2439 Toringdon Way.
Grabbagreen’s fresh whole foods menu is naturally gluten-free, preservative-free, GMO free, 70 percent organic, and uses only hormone-free and antibiotic-free proteins.The menu offers a full selection of grain and green-based bowls, fresh-pressed juice, handcrafted smoothies, acai bowls, kid-friendly items, and a healthy breakfast menu that is available all day long.
In addition to the healthy menu, all signature menu items at Grabbagreen are prepared fresh and made-to-order. They also offer a variety of options for their guests to customize their meal with the popular ‘Grab Your Own’ option, allowing them to create a meal according to their dietary needs.
“I have lived in Charlotte for five years and am very excited about bringing the concept to the community,” says Adams. “Charlotteans are fast paced and looking for healthier options. The EpiCentre is a perfect healthy, fast food location. We are located in the hub of the second fastest growing city in the nation. The EpiCentre provides easy access to the Time Warner Area, the NASCAR museum, the Mint, the Charlotte Convention center and more. Grabbagreen is a great fit for Charlotte as it fills the sweet spot where healthy meets fast. We can’t wait to open the doors and help lead the charge in making fast food, healthy.”
The Charlotte EpiCentre location will be open Monday to Thursday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. The modern decor and industrial garage door openings add to the restaurant’s energetic ambiance and appeals to everyone from children to adults.
