September 24, 2018 // Franchising.com // SAN RAMON, Calif. – Recognized and adored for its substantial menu of superfoods, Vitality Bowls announced today that it has sold more than 3.5 million açaí bowls to fans across the country.
“We are incredibly proud to reach a milestone like this in our seventh year of business,” said Tara Gilad, founder and owner of Vitality Bowls. “We are very grateful for our team, which is made up of dedicated individuals who truly care about customer wellbeing and experiences. The passion and health-consciousness from our team and customers are what helped us reach 3.5 million - that is a lot of acai bowls.”
The groundbreaking successes don’t stop there for the brand, either. Vitality Bowls also reached a new milestone of selling 1 million acai bowls in record time, hitting more than 1.3 million bowls sold by August 2018 and surpassing its own record in achieving this same milestone in years past.

The superfood café brand has more than quadrupled in size since launching franchising efforts in 2014, with more than 100 cafes open or in development today.
“I am still blown away by the continuous support from our loyal customers” added Gilad. “People are realizing that healthy doesn’t have to mean boring, and dining out doesn’t have to be unhealthy. As a brand that values wellness, we are overjoyed to see so many people choosing to enjoy healthy, nutritious food options.”
