From Vitality Bowls Enterprises, LLC on January 13, 2023:

DANVILLE, Calif. – Vitality Bowls, the leading allergy-friendly superfood café, wraps up an impressive 2022 and looks ahead to continued growth and accomplishments in the new year. The brand plans to build upon its strategic franchise growth strategy and increase the reach of Vitality Bowls to even more communities across the country. 

In 2022, the Northern California-based franchise brand celebrated its 11-year anniversary as well as many other highlights, including nationwide growth in key markets throughout California, Texas, North Carolina, Ohio, Arizona, Connecticut and Florida. The health-centric brand opened the doors to nine new units across the country, with breakthrough entrances in the states of Arizona and Massachusetts. Additionally, Vitality Bowls closed out 2022 with the signing of 20 new franchise agreements.

Driving sales was a focal point for the brand in 2022 and after coming off of the heels of its nationwide savory menu launch in 2021, Vitality Bowls generated another year-over-year systemwide sales increase. The company has also sold over 3.8 million açaí bowls in less than two years.

“Our success as a brand this past year inspires us to continue to grow our footprint across the nation. With such passionate and qualified franchisees on our team, we have been able to share our superfood movement further and further every year,” said Tara Gilad, president and co-founder of Vitality Bowls. “The positive reception of our savory menu and proprietary bottled juices as well as the recent launch of a new catering menu and other innovations has allowed us to broaden our customer base and we look forward to expanding our horizons in 2023.” 

Throughout 2022, Vitality Bowls earned national recognition, being included on the 2022 Franchise Times Top 500 list. The brand was also named a Top Food Franchise by Entrepreneur Magazine and ranked in the top five of the segmented “Best of: Açaí Bowl” category.

For the fourth year in a row, Vitality Bowls partnered with the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Connection Team (FAACT) during Food Allergy Awareness Month. In support of this nonprofit organization, Vitality Bowls donated 10 percent of the proceeds from their Bowl of the Month in May to aid in increased education about food allergies and enhance the safety of those affected by food allergies.

Vitality Bowls has become a bonafide leader in the health food industry since its inception in 2011. Originating in Northern California, Vitality Bowls has solidified itself as America’s superfood café – combining a dynamic café vibe with a unique collection of menu items containing high nutritional values and extraordinary tastes. The brand specializes in açaí bowls – a thick blend of the Amazon’s antioxidant-rich açaí berry, topped with a variety of superfoods.
