Shannon Allen is the creator of grown™, the first ever 100% USDA organic certified fast food restaurant with a drive thru on the East Coast.
Shannon lives in Miami with her husband, Ray Allen (two-time NBA champion) and their five children. She created grown™ after searching unsuccessfully for an organic, nutrient dense meal on-the-go for her children, including middle son Walker who lives with Type 1 Diabetes.
The Allen’s are passionate advocates for research for a cure for Type 1 Diabetes in honor of Walker and the millions of children and adults that are living with this potentially life threatening medical condition.
The grown concept evolved, in part, from her TV show, The Pre-Game Meal which was inspired by 18 years of preparing optimal game day meals for her husband. The show featured professional athletes and chefs preparing healthier versions of tailgate food in hopes of inspiring soccer moms, student athletes and sports fans alike to embrace a healthier diet & exercise.
