ABOUT US

Shadow

Vitality Bowls is an 750 – 1,500 sq. ft. Superfood Café focused on delivering top quality organic Açaí, Acerola, Pitaya and Graviola Bowls®, smoothies, fresh juices, soups, salads, and panini. Vitality Bowls® are enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, or dessert.

We are growing! Each month, we have new Vitality Bowls cafés opening in markets across the country, as more and more entrepreneurs excitedly bring the health to their communities.

Vitality Bowls was created out of a strong commitment to bring health and wellness to every community across the country through fresh, high-quality superfoods in an allergy-friendly environment. This philosophy has guided everything we do and we strive to instill the same health-minded values to our employees and customers.

Named one of the top 100 new franchises by Entrepreneur, Vitality Bowls is a leader in the health food restaurant industry.

Vitality Bowls is committed to giving back to our local communities. Our corporate stores donate regularly to the local Food Banks. Most Vitality Bowls locations have long-standing partnerships with schools and local nonprofits.  

As a restaurant brand, Vitality Bowls is always working to reduce waste and support sustainable practices. We encourage a commitment to recycling and composting when available. We only source meats from farmers with humane practices and use organic superfoods whenever possible.
