DANVILLE, Calif. – Inc. magazine revealed that Vitality Bowls has been earned the #3899 spot on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment – its independent small businesses. This is the fourth year in a row that the brand has ranked on the list.
“We are thrilled to be featured in the Inc. 5000 list for a fourth consecutive year, especially during such an exciting time for Vitality Bowls,” said Roy Gilad, co-founder and CEO. “Over the past few years, we have been hard at work on our operational strategies, menu innovations and franchise development plans. Receiving this honor as we approach our 10-year anniversary in the fall is truly a testament to the dedication and diligence of our corporate and franchise team members.”
Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which will be available on newsstands on August 20.
“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
Over the last decade, the northern California-based Vitality Bowls has become a leader in the health food industry, selling well over six million açaí bowls since its inception. The brand celebrates its 10-year anniversary in October 2021, recognizing a successful decade for founders Tara and Roy Gilad after they first created Vitality Bowls as a result of discovering their daughter’s severe food allergies and wanting a restaurant concept with healthy, allergy-friendly food options.
