December 23, 2014 // Franchising.com // Newport Beach, CA - Bowl of Heaven - the innovative concept which serves up delicious açaí bowls, smoothies and cold pressed juices which feature plant protein and super food ingredients - has announced the signing of a 4-unit franchise deal for parts of Los Angeles County, including West Hollywood and Santa Monica.
Bowl Of Heaven has partnered with Fransmart, the franchise development company responsible for the explosive growth of brands like Five Guys and Qdoba Mexican Grill, to expand through franchising. The brand now has over 50 units in development across CA and NV.
The new franchisee, Felicia Marquez, worked with Fransmart Director of Development Jolly Khabrani on securing her 4-unit deal, and hopes to have the first unit open by in 2015 in either of her two secured cities, followed by a second location shortly after that.
Marquez began her career in the restaurant industry, and was trained in French fine dining service while attending college at California State University of Long Beach. She has worked for top chefs across both French and Italian cuisines, and says she has always had a passion for being able to provide superior dining and service experiences.
Of her decision to partner with Bowl Of Heaven, Marquez said, "I wanted to be involved with a product that would help a body improve and achieve overall goodness. I am thrilled to be a part of this growing trend and honored to be in the company of such a brilliant group of trend setters and entrepreneurs. Bowl Of Heaven and the products they are developing strike at the very heart of being a better you!"
Bowl of Heaven is a revolutionary fast casual concept as it is poised to overtake various segments in the space including healthy meal replacements, clean eating and cold pressed juicing.
"Bowl Of Heaven, along with all the super foods we are bringing to market will revolutionize the health food industry," said Marquez. "As a population we all strive to be better tomorrow than we are today, and these products align with the core of what our bodies crave."

Bowl of Heaven serves up fresh Açaí bowls - healthy meals made with both fresh and frozen fruits, super fruits, and healthy toppings like organic granola and honey – which are considered the future of delicious fast casual meal replacements. These bowls, which are currently popular in Brazil and Hawaii, do not use any dairy or added sugars, are filled with nutrition and antioxidants, and due to the superfood traits of the açaí berry can fill you up and energize you for hours on a mere 500 calories!
The concept was conceived by Dan McCormick and his son-in-law, Brandon Beazer, who both fell in love with açaí bowls when they experienced them out in Hawaii, and longed for a way that they could enjoy the exotic fruit bowls back home in California. In 2010, they opened the first Bowl of Heaven location and accomplished this mission!
Bowl of Heaven is a winning combination of the health benefits of the super food ingredients and the wide consumer appeal of frozen bowls and smoothies. Bowl of Heaven keeps customers coming back for more because they are not only delicious but also make consumers feel good about themselves.
