Meet Shannon Allen: our resident mom-on-the-go. Shannon lives in Miami, Florida with her husband, Ray Allen (two-time NBA champion) and their five children; Tierra, Ray III, Walker, Wynn and Wystan. She is incredibly excited about launching grown, the Allen’s shared vision for reinventing fast food. The restaurant concept evolved from her television show, The Pre-Game Meal, inspired by 18 years of preparing optimal game day meals for her husband, Ray Allen (10-time NBA All-Star).  The show featured professional athletes and chefs preparing healthier versions of tailgate food in hopes of inspiring soccer moms and sports fans alike to embrace a healthier diet & exercise.

The Allen’s are passionate advocates for research for a cure for Type 1 Diabetes in honor of their seven-year-old son, Walker.  Shannon, Ray and their family devote their time and efforts to raise the level of awareness of T1D and its symptoms and are committed with purpose, passion and dedication to prevailing in the fight against this potentially life threatening disease.
