Attention, Walmart shoppers: A very different kind of store just hit the big box chain. If you've ever walked into a Walmart, you've probably noticed one of a few tried-and-true chain fast food joints in the front corner. Often it's McDonald's; sometimes it's Checkers or Subway.

The Wally World off of Narcoosee Road in Orlando, FL, is bucking that trend, putting a unique and unexpected restaurant featured front and center.

It's called grown, an organic restaurant founded by former NBA player Ray Allen and his wife, Shannon. The company, which focuses on selling "slow food for fast people" (think smoothies, juices, and grain bowls), may seem like an odd fit for the chain, but reps insist it's a more organic collaboration than you'd expect.


It turns out Walmart sells more organic groceries than any other retailer in the U.S., and the brand's made it their goal to expand its options for shoppers. "Operating grown inside of Walmart makes the store accessible to every family, regardless of their mean income, making the move a game-changer for consumers," a representative for the brand wrote via email.

Most of the meals are as customizable as a Chipotle burrito bowl: You choose the protein, vegetables, grains, and a sauce to top it. Craving grilled shrimp with Mexican corn, black beans, and Chimichurri? You can do it. Grilled salmon, roasted garlic Brussels Sprouts, mashed sweet potatoes and BBQ sauce? Done and done.

There's also a portion of the menu devoted to salads, sandwiches, and wraps, which start with a base flavor combination say, Parisienne (butter lettuce, greens, red onion, hardboiled eggs, tomatoes and Dijon) or Capri (pesto, kale, romaine, tomato, mozzarella, red onions, and balsamic glaze) and you choose what protein you add to it.

It's unclear whether the pricing mirrors the Miami store, but if so, it may be a surprise to some Walmart shoppers. At $14-$18 per grain bowl, it's pricier than the typical fast food fare.
