“We believe in Vitality Bowls’ mission of encouraging everyone to live healthy and active lifestyles,” says Kim, who most recently spent 10 years as a community organizer.

The fast-casual café offers a variety of made-to-order antioxidant-rich açaí bowls, nutrient-dense smoothies and fresh raw juices. All açaí bowls and smoothies are made without ingredient fillers like ice, frozen yogurt or artificial preservatives.

House-made meat and vegetable panini sandwiches; spinach and kale salads; and a soup of the day are also on the menu, and organic kombucha and cold-brew coffee are on tap.

The brand was founded in 2011 by San Ramon couple Roy and Tara Gilad, who were motivated to find healthy and safe food alternatives to address their daughter’s severe allergies.

Since then, it has expanded to 36 cafés in California and more than 135 nationwide.
