Leading Superfood Concept Joins 346 Other Franchises to Look Out For in 2020

BY Franchising.com – December 03, 2019 // DANVILLE, Calif. – Vitality Bowls announced today that it has been named one of the top franchises to lookout for this new year by Entrepreneur. The leading superfood pioneer was included in the “Juices/Acai Bowls” category.

The recognition verifies the exceptional growth the company has experienced in the past year. In 2018, the brand generated $23,312,595 in sales and opened 19 locations. Currently, Vitality Bowls has reached 78 locations open throughout the United States with an additional 60+ in development.

“We are honored to be recognized by Entrepreneur’s list of franchise categories to look out for in the coming year,” said Tara Gilad, founder and owner of Vitality Bowls. “This recognition can be credited to the amazing work done by our savvy franchise partners and passionate team members. We can’t wait to see the continued growth of Vitality Bowls in 2020.”

Since 1980, Entrepreneur has compiled a list of the top franchise brands in a variety of categories to watch closely for the coming year. This list is often used as a resource for prospective franchise partners, giving a brief description of each chain, the estimated startup cost and the total number of units, both franchised and corporate-owned.

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. All items are made to order and prepared in a kitchen designed to avoid cross contact for customers with food allergies. The brand’s bowls and smoothies are free of ingredient fillers such as ice, frozen yogurt or artificial preservatives, giving the purest taste possible.

The menu features the widest variety of unique superfoods, including graviola, acerola, mangosteen, camu camu, spirulina, aronia, moringa, maca, bee pollen and more. Guests can choose from a variety of delectable options, such as the Green Bowl (with organic graviola, spirulina and hemp seeds), the Dragon Bowl (featuring organic pitaya, coconut milk and bananas) and the signature Vitality Bowl (with organic açaí, strawberries and honey). Plus, fresh juices, smoothies, soups, panini and salads are available in each café and most locations offer organic cold brew nitrogen-poured coffee and organic kombucha on-tap.

Individuals with an entrepreneurial spirit interested in owning a Vitality Bowls franchise should have the ability to invest $154,100, which includes working capital and a typical franchise fee of $39,500.
