BY THE HOUSTON CHRONICLE – A new superfood café is coming to the northwest Houston area.

Vitality Bowls, opening Oct. 25 at 24120 Northwest Freeway, Suite 250 in Cypress, has a focus on healthy superfoods including açaí bowls, smoothies, juices, paninis and salads.

The company was founded by Roy Gilad and Tara Gilad in California after discovering their daughter had severe food allergies, according to the press release.

The new location of the franchise, with more than 100 locations in the United States, will be owned by Jay Johnson and Susan Johnson. Susan Johnson said tasting the food made her want to own her own location.

“From the first bite I took from an açaí bowl at Vitality Bowls, I knew it was the start of a new journey for me,” said Susan Johnson in a press release. “The incredible taste of the fresh ingredients and the feeling it provides is just an unbeatable combination.”

The location will also include a full-service coffee bar with espresso and superfood drinks, as well as cold brew nitrogen-poured coffee and organic kombucha on tap. Tara Gilad said Vitality Bowls locations are meant to provide community members a healthier option.

“We believe that healthy food can be an option for fast casual food and we are excited to have Jay and Susan on board with this,” she said in the release. “We look forward to seeing the couple grow their business in Cypress and sharing the Vitality Bowls message with the community.”
