MIAMI (AP) – Former NBA star Ray Allen and his wife Shannon are opening an organic healthy fast-food restaurant in Miami.

The couple says Grown will fill a void in the market by offering real food, cooked slow for fast people when it opens next month.

Shannon Allen says she’s realized the need for a fast and healthy restaurant as a busy mother of five, including a son with Type 1 diabetes. She says they were constantly living in their car, always on the go and struggling to find healthy fast food options.

The restaurant will serve locally-sourced, organic meals priced between $4 and $18. The menu includes small-batch soups, fresh salads, sandwiches and wraps, gluten-free baked goods and made-to-order cold-pressed juices.

Grown will also feature full service drive-thru, grab-and-go options and carry-out.
