Walmart opens organic restaurant in Florida store
While many Walmart stores have some type of food component, it’s usually a McDonalds or Dunkin Donuts, a location in Orlando, Florida that just took a different direction.
Instead of the regular fare, it has a new location from the Grown fast food chain instead.
Grown focuses on organic and healthy foods, with meals costing on average in the middle of adolescence. Its casual and quick at the counter, and you choose protein, grains, greens and other ingredients that can be served in a bowl, wrap, salad or sandwich.
There is a wide variety of main dishes to choose from, including salmon, falafel, shrimp, brisket and more. Grown also serves breakfast in the morning, as well as smoothies and juices throughout the day.
The restaurant has another location in Florida, Miami, and another location in the Wesleyan University Bookstore in Middletown, Connecticut. It was started by Shannon Allen, the wife of former professional basketball player Ray Allen.
Walmart has recently made great strides in wooing the health-conscious consumer, and the company has significantly revamped its organic food offering. It has now grown into the largest organic food slinger in the United States.
This new restaurant is just another sign that America’s largest retailer is serious about serving these customers and paying attention to customer needs and demands.
