BY FLORIDA TIMES-UNION – Vitality Bowls, a restaurant chain that describes itself as serving superfood, will open its first North Florida restaurant in Jacksonville Beach. Donnie and Amy Sears are opening it this spring at North Beach Plaza, 1516 Third St. N.
Many of their dishes are bowls built around the heralded acai berry from Brazil, but there are also sandwiches, salads and smoothies.
The company was founded in Northern California in 2011 and started franchising in 2014. Last year, it signed 27 new agreements and opened 11 locations. The only other one in Florida is in Miami’s South Beach.
