Move over, LeBron James: It’s another former Miami Heat star’s chance at a lucrative career in Miami’s healthy dining scene.

Ray Allen and his wife, Shannon, are trying their hand at nutritious meals with Grown, an organic fast-food restaurant set to open in March in South Miami at 8211 S. Dixie Hwy.

The Juice Spot closed early this year, leaving a vacancy in the field of basketball player-owned healthy eateries in Miami.  12208257_736457803122560_6718164481174088180_n

But Allen’s will be different.

Grown was inspired by his son’s battle with Type 1 diabetes. Nine-year-old Walker’s struggles with managing a busy lifestyle and getting the nutrient-rich food he needs inspired mom Shannon to create her own solution.

“I had an aha moment where I realized I couldn’t sit around helpless waiting for someone else to create a fast-food option that met our family’s dietary needs, and as we did our research it became obvious that this wasn’t a struggle unique to us, families everywhere are looking for convenience without compromise,” she said.
