BY KANSAS CITY STAR – New area franchisees for the San Ramon, Calif.-based chain Vitality Bowls want to open their first location in Leawood or Overland Park.
Chris Landes and his wife, Judy Deines, of Lee’s Summit, became franchisees after Deines tried the chain on her business travels.
“She wanted good, healthy food and truly loved the food itself,” Landes said. They plan at least two area locations and are looking for spaces of 1,000-to-1,200 square feet.
Menu items include acai bowls, detox bowls (with kale, bananas, strawberries, honey, flax seed and more), panini, salads and soups, smoothies, breakfast bowls and a fresh juice bar.
