Grabbagreen grabbing a piece of Michigan
Grabbagreen is entering Michigan, thanks to inking a deal with franchisees Michael, Spencer and Christina Raymond of Green & Go, LLC. The agreement includes exclusive rights to develop 10 stores in the southeast part of Michigan over the next five years, according to a company press release. The franchise group is actively looking for sites within a five-county area in Livingston, Oakland, Wayne, Washtenaw and Macomb counties.
"We are very excited to continue to penetrate the Midwest and enter the state of Michigan," Kim Cramton, EVP of franchise development and operations, said in the release. "The continued response is a testament that people want healthy food, fast, that is delicious. We are thrilled to have the Raymond family unite with ours and be on the front line of changing the face of fast food."
Healthy eating is clearly becoming the new trend among all age groups, said Spencer Raymond, who was first drawn to Grabbagreen because of the lack of other health-conscious food options available on the go.
"When I found Grabbagreen, it struck me as a clear and convincing alternative. What has been lacking in the industry is a healthy and convenient option without compromising the integrity of the food and Grabbagreen does just that. We have no doubt that our community will fall in love with Grabbagreen just like we did," he said. "We are excited to bring this concept to southeast Michigan."
Since announcing its franchise opportunity in April 2015, Grabbagreen has signed 98 store agreements and more than 174 development agreements. It has 24 restaurants operating in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, New Jersey, North Carolina, Tennessee and Texas.
