Former Miami Heat basketball player Ray Allen and his wife Shannon will expand Grown, their organic fast-food restaurant company, to Orlando.

Miami-based Grown has a fast-food menu certified as organic by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, suitable for vegans and vegetarians as well as customers sensitive to gluten, allergic to certain foods, or restricted to a paleo diet.

The company’s new location is a stand-alone site inside a Walmart Supercenter in the Lake Nona community of southeastern Orlando. Grown will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner daily at the Walmart Supercenter at 11930 Narcoossee Road from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Grown opened its flagship restaurant at 8211 South Dixie Highway in Miami. The company also operates at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.

In addition to offering an organic menu, Grown also uses compost-ready paper products free of pulp and kids-meal packaging that encourages young customers to grow gardens. “We’re passionate about changing the world one organic fast food meal at a time,” Shannon Allen said in a prepared statement.

Shannon and Ray Allen started Grown after searching in vain for organically nutritious fast-food options for their five children, including a son with Type 1 diabetes.
