Vitality Bowls announced today that it has been ranked on Franchise Times’ Top 200+ list, the most comprehensive ranking of the 500 largest franchise systems in the United States. The distinguished list is based on Vitality Bowls’ global system sales and number of locations. Vitality Bowls ranks in at #487 on the list and joins the most reputable brands in the nation.
The acknowledgement of being named to this ranking verifies the exceptional growth the company has experienced in the past year. In 2018, the brand generated $23,312,595 in sales and opened 19 locations. Currently, Vitality Bowls has reached 75 locations open throughout the United States with an additional 50+ in development.
“It’s an honor to be recognized on Franchise Times’ Top 200+ list,” said Tara Gilad, founder and owner of Vitality Bowls. “This achievement would not be possible without our incredible team members and franchise partners. We can’t wait to see Vitality Bowls continue to grow in the year ahead.”
Franchise Times uses a combination of companies’ voluntary reports and the most recent franchise disclosure documents to rank the 500 largest franchise systems in the United States. To qualify for the ranking, companies must be a legal United States franchise, with its headquarters based in the United States or at least 10 percent of their total units located in the country. Franchisees must also own at least 15 percent of the company’s total units.
Originating in Northern California, Vitality Bowls has solidified itself as America’s superfood café – combining a dynamic café vibe with a unique collection of menu items containing high nutritional values and extraordinary tastes. The brand specializes in açaí bowls – a thick blend of the Amazon’s antioxidant-rich açaí berry, topped with a variety of superfoods and all items are made to order and prepared in a kitchen designed to avoid cross contact for customers with food allergies. All of the brand’s bowls and smoothies are free of ingredient fillers such as ice, frozen yogurt or artificial preservatives, giving the purest taste possible.
The menu features the widest variety of unique superfoods, including graviola, acerola, mangosteen, camu camu, spirulina, aronia, moringa, maca, bee pollen and more. Guests can choose from a variety of delectable options, such as the Green Bowl (with organic graviola, spirulina and hemp seeds), the Dragon Bowl (featuring organic pitaya, coconut milk and bananas) and the signature Vitality Bowl (with organic açaí, strawberries and honey). Plus, fresh juices, smoothies, soups, panini and salads are available in each café and most locations offer organic cold brew nitrogen-poured coffee and organic kombucha on-tap.
Individuals with an entrepreneurial spirit interested in owning a Vitality Bowls franchise should have the ability to invest $154,100, which includes working capital and a typical franchise fee of $39,500.
