US-based fast casual restaurant chain Mahana Fresh has entered into a multi-unit franchise deal with NBA champion and entrepreneur Kyle Kuzma in the US.

Kuzma said: “The franchise expansion with Mahana Fresh represents my commitment to creating opportunities, fostering growth and making a meaningful impact.

“I’m looking forward to working with Mahana Fresh to help strategically scale their business so we can bring delicious, nutritious options to more neighborhoods across the country, promoting a healthier lifestyle for everyone.”

Mahana Fresh offers customers a wide variety of gluten-free meals and dairy-free alternatives.

Its menu thrives on the build-your-own-bowl model, which allows customers to choose their base, protein, toppings and sauces.

The restaurant menu also includes dessert bite options, including zucchini brownies, chocolate chip cookies and snickerdoodles.
