In more good news for healthy-minded diners and salad eaters all around, a branch of Grabbagreen is set to land in Addison in early 2017. The restaurant will open in the Addison Walk Shopping Center, at 5000 Belt Line Rd.

Grabbagreen is the concept that does a healthy twist on fast food. Based in Scottsdale, Arizona, the chain was founded three years ago, and currently has eight locations in four states.

A first branch is already scheduled to open on Gaston Road, on the campus of Baylor University Medical Center. But that branch is from a different franchise group, 3MUnited, which has plans to open three stores around Dallas. The Baylor branch will open in late November.

According to a release, the Addison branch comes from a second franchise group, Prometheus Worldwide, led by Eric Tautfest and Todd Everette, who have big plans to open 20 stores in total. Add that to the other three branches, and you get 23 stores total. Healthy eating helps you count good.

Other branches penciled in on the company's map include two locations in Plano, on West Spring Parkway and West Plano Parkway and Alma Drive, plus a few in Dallas such as McKinney and Fitzhugh Avenues. If everything goes according to their plan, we can look forward to a lot of Grabbagreen.

The menu does grain- and green-based bowls with hormone- and antibiotic-free proteins, pressed juice, and handcrafted smoothies, which are the only kind of smoothies we ever want to drink. There are also acai bowls, breakfast, and healthy kid-friendly items.
