By Plano Magazine – In 2011 Vitality Bowls opened in San Ramon, California. With a menu full of a variety of superfoods, the restaurant has grown to now more than 135 locations open or in development. One of the newest locations opened June 26 right here in Plano at 2100 N. Dallas Parkway.
Local residents Mike and Suzette Crews, previously working in healthcare management and consulting, had been looking for a new business to get into. Suzette “fell in love with the idea” of Vitality Bowls, said Mike.
Their Plano location serves up healthy bowls, smoothies, juices, paninis, soups and salads. The bowls begin with a base of açai blended with an option of graviola, acerola or pitaya, along with other fruits and veggies. Each bowl comes loaded with toppings such as granola, fresh fruit, honey, almonds, bee pollen and more, but diners can add or remove toppings as they like. Dining at Vitality Bowls offers the customer a guarantee that they’ll be consuming highly nutritious ingredients.
“Our goal in opening Vitality Bowls is to make it a place the community can be proud of,” said Mike. “We were moved by the dedication and support we have seen from local residents and healthcare professionals over the last few months, and we want to continue the gratitude and inspiring momentum as we open our doors to the community.”
The staff at Vitality Bowls is taking COVID-19 precautions seriously, and have implemented a plexiglass barrier at check-out, constant sanitization of tables and door handles, and a policy requiring all employees to wear face masks and gloves.

UPDATE 6-26-2020: Vitality Bowls in Plano opens on June 26. It specializes in açaí bowls – a thick blend of the Amazon’s antioxidant-rich açaí berry, topped with a variety of superfoods.
The hot-hot trend of restaurants specializing in healthy “bowls” has not dimmed and here’s a new one coming to Plano: Vitality Bowls, the superfood café specializing in açaí bowls, smoothies, fresh juices, salads and paninis, will open its first location in Plano, at the Polo Towne Crossing center at 2100 Dallas Pkwy., #132.
According to a release, the location is from Suzette and Mike Crews and it will open in April.
Vitality entered the DFW area in 2018, with a restaurant that opened in Preston Hollow Village. There are now two locations in Frisco and another coming soon to Southlake.
Açaí bowls are Vitality Bowls’ specialty. They feature a thick blend of the Amazon’s antioxidant-rich berry, topped with a variety of superfoods, including graviola, acerola, mangosteen, camu camu, spirulina, aronia, moringa, and maca.
Guests can choose from options such as the Green Bowl, with organic graviola, spirulina, and hemp seeds; the Dragon Bowl, with organic pitaya, coconut milk, and bananas; and the signature Vitality Bowl, with organic açaí, strawberries, and honey.
Vitality also serves juices, smoothies, soups, panini, salads, and organic kombucha on-tap.
The concept was founded in 2011 in San Ramon, California, by Roy and Tara Gilad, who discovered their daughter had severe food allergies and wanted to find alternatives.
There are currently more than 140 Vitality Bowls locations open or in development across the United States.
“Suzette and I have been very impressed by the healthy options offered by Vitality Bowls and we believe it can make an impact on our family and provide healthy and delicious alternatives to our Plano neighbors,” says Mike Crews in a statement.
He and Suzette plan to open more locations in the area in an effort to bring health-focused food to the community.
By Mercury News – Fremont finally has its first Vitality Bowls.
The “superfood” cafe whose menu is built on the antioxidant-rich acai berry opens its doors today on Paseo Padre Parkway for takeout and delivery. It’s the 38th location in California for the company founded in 2011 in San Ramon by Tara and Roy Gilad, parents who were inspired to create a restaurant haven for those, like their daughter, who suffer from food allergies.
The menu features fruit-based bowls (the Warrior Bowl and the Dragon Bowl are among the most popular), smoothies, panini, salads and soup. All are made in non-cross-contamination kitchens, and no artificial preservatives or added sweeteners are used.
Vi Pham and Scott Bui, the owners of this Vitality Bowls in the Gateway Plaza near Raley’s, are both health-care professionals. They say they plan to open additional locations in the region.
If you don’t make time for your wellness you will be forced to make time for your illness. #foodismedicine
