May 04, 2023 // // BEREA, OHIO. – Vitality Bowls, which specializes in açaí bowls, smoothies, salads, wraps and more, announced today that its local Berea franchise owner and operator team, Michael Todia and Susan DiMassa, have signed a lease to open a new location. It will be the couple’s first location and the brand’s second in the Cleveland area.

Michael and Susan are planning for a 2023 opening across the street from Baldwin Wallace University. The health-focused fast casual restaurant will grant local residents, students, professionals and visitors access to an assortment of nutrient-dense foods not found elsewhere.

“We’re thrilled to open our café in Berea and bring healthy and delicious food options to the community,” said Michael, a business professional with 30 years of management and industrial experience. “Our dream has been to provide more access to the most nutritious superfoods on the planet and we knew Vitality Bowls would bring us an excellent opportunity for those dreams to come to fruition.”

Over the last decade, Northern California-based Vitality Bowls has become a bonafide leader in the health food industry. The sophisticated, dynamic cafés play perfectly into the unique collection of superfood menu items, all containing extraordinary ingredients packed with antioxidants and high nutritional values.

Vitality Bowls offers made-to-order healthy favorites for every meal of the day, featuring the widest variety of unique superfoods. Guests can choose from a range of delectable options, such as the Dragon Bowl (featuring pitaya, coconut milk, goji berries and bee pollen) and their signature Vitality Bowl (with organic açaí, bananas, strawberries, organic granola and honey).

In addition to açaí bowls and smoothies, the brand boasts a diverse menu that includes warm and savory items including salads, grain bowls, wraps, toasts and panini loaded with nutritional ingredients and a wide range of superfood toppings. Options include the crowd-pleasing Vitality Wrap, made with hummus, avocado, super greens, grains, roasted potato, radish, pickled red onion, lemon tahini vinaigrette, garlic aioli and superseed crunch in a tomato basil tortilla. For lunch, Vitality Bowls also offers an irresistible Chimichurri Steak Wrap, made with tomato basil tortilla, grass-fed steak, super greens, grains, roasted tomato, chimichurri, garlic aioli, and sunflower seeds along with the Mighty Med Salad and Chimichurri Steak and Roasted Potato Bowl.

Plus, all açaí bowls and smoothies are prepared without any ingredient fillers like ice, frozen yogurt, or artificial preservatives, giving the purest taste possible.

“Michael and Susan are exactly the right people to grow the brand in Berea,” said Tara Gilad, co-founder of Vitality Bowls. “They truly represent our values here at Vitality Bowls and share the mission of bringing delicious and healthy food options to the community. This will be a wonderful addition to the health-food offerings available to Berea residents.”
