In 2022, the Northern California-based franchise brand celebrated its 11-year anniversary as well as many other highlights, including nationwide growth in key markets throughout California, Texas, North Carolina, Ohio, Arizona, Connecticut and Florida. The health-centric brand opened the doors to nine new units across the country, with breakthrough entrances in the states of Arizona and Massachusetts. Additionally, Vitality Bowls closed out 2022 with the signing of 20 new franchise agreements.
Driving sales was a focal point for the brand in 2022 and after coming off of the heels of its nationwide savory menu launch in 2021, Vitality Bowls generated another year-over-year systemwide sales increase. The company has also sold over 3.8 million açaí bowls in less than two years.
“Our success as a brand this past year inspires us to continue to grow our footprint across the nation. With such passionate and qualified franchisees on our team, we have been able to share our superfood movement further and further every year,” said Tara Gilad, president and co-founder of Vitality Bowls. “The positive reception of our savory menu and proprietary bottled juices as well as the recent launch of a new catering menu and other innovations has allowed us to broaden our customer base and we look forward to expanding our horizons in 2023.”
