The eatery will offer healthy grab-and-go meal options

Smoothie King franchisee Philip Jones, is opening a new restaurant for healthy grab and go options this week near Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

Grub Fresh Bowls & Wraps opens Wednesday at 876 Virginia Ave. in Hapeville.

Chicago native Jones, who moved to Atlanta 13 years ago, said he wanted to offer healthy dining options outside of his four Smoothie King locations, including the location adjacent to Grub Fresh Bowls and Wraps. He plans to expand the concept to four more metro Atlanta locations over the next five years.

“I created Grub because I would spend hours looking for something quick and healthy to eat,” Jones said in a prepared statement. “The lack of options made it challenging to maintain a healthy lifestyle while working such a busy schedule. After years of frustration, I decided to recruit a classically-trained chef to help me take my passionate idea and create a solution that left me feeling satisfied and recharged.”

Jones collaborated with chef Kelley Hicks on the menu, which features seasonal bowls and wraps including a Jerk Chicken Bowl, Sweet and Spicy Salmon Bowl, Southwest Bowl, Philly Cheesesteak Wrap, Buffalo Chicken Wrap and Grilled Veggie Wrap. All bowls and wraps come with the option of jasmine rice, brown rice or a flatbread wrap. All menu items can be customized to be vegetarian, and a separate vegan menu will launch over the next six months.
