Valley based food and juice restaurant opens third location in less than 2 years

Downtown residents looking for a healthy and refreshing alternative to soda, coffee and traditional fast food are sure to “go green” with excitement when they hear about the new addition to CityScape Phoenix. Grabbagreen® has signed the lease on their third location at 50 W. Jefferson at CityScape. The super food and healthy juice restaurant powerhouse currently has two locations in Scottsdale, one in Central Scottsdale at the corner of Scottsdale and Shea, and another location at the SW corner of the 101 and Frank Lloyd Wright.

“It has been an incredible 2 years,” says Keely Newman, President of Grabbagreen. “Seeing a dream of yours become a reality is just an awesome feeling. Customers have been begging us for a location closer to downtown for quite some time, and we are looking forward to bringing juices and other great healthy fresh food options to students, businesses and residents in the downtown area.”

Grabbagreen was a concept developed back in 2012, when Scottsdale moms, Newman and her childhood friend, Kelley Bird, found it increasingly difficult to feed their growing families nutritious meals. Between soccer, ballet, jazz, swimming, baseball, tennis and yoga, cooking was not always possible and they were fed up with unhealthy fast food options. With convenience and health consciousness in mind, they decided to create Grabbagreen, a food and juice restaurant providing customers a way to quickly grab healthy and organic food.

They developed a food+juice menu based on super food ingredients, packed full of both raw centrifugal and cold-pressed juice and filling smoothies. The food items contain both hot and cold grains, green salad-based bowls, proteins and a healthy kid-friendly menu that are easy to grab on the go.

Earlier this month, Grabbagreen made another healthy announcement as they launched “Grabba Breakfast”, featuring a unique breakfast menu with a twist that showcases collard wraps, original quinoa cakes, quinoa breakfast sandwiches, breakfast bowls, Acai cups and more.

In addition to providing super food on the go, Grabbagreen delivers the healthy goodness to customers around the Valley and offers detox juice packages available for delivery or pick up. The Grabbagreen App is available on both iTunes and Google play allowing customers to easily order their meal ahead from their desk or car for convenient pick-up. They are open 7:00am-9:00pm Monday through Saturday and 9:00am-9:00pm on Sunday. For more information, please call 855.GRABBA1 or visit www.grabbagreen.com.
