Vitality Bowls, known as America’s number one superfood café, announced today the opening of its café in Ocoee. The brand specializes in açaí bowls – a thick blend of the Amazon’s antioxidant-rich açaí berry, topped with a variety of superfoods – as well as nutrient-packed smoothies, fresh juice, salads and panini. The new franchise location will be the second for Harold and Jackie Gattereau, who opened their first café in Dr. Phillips in 2018.
“We believe in Vitality Bowls’ mission of encouraging everyone to live healthy and active lifestyles,” said Jackie, who has extensive experience in marketing and real estate. “The menu consists of healthful options that are packed with nutrients and flavor. We’re looking forward to increasing Orlando’s accessibility to Vitality Bowls with our second café.”
Slated to open on November 9, the new restaurant will be located at 11050 West Colonial Drive, Suite 50, conveniently situated near the busy intersection of West Colonial Drive and Maguire Road. This restaurant will be the fourth Vitality Bowls café in Florida, joining the more than 135 locations open or in development nationwide.
Originating in Northern California, the last nine years have solidified Vitality Bowls’ status as a pioneer in the industry – combining a dynamic café vibe with a unique collection of menu items containing high nutritional values and extraordinary tastes. Vitality Bowls offers an antioxidant-rich menu, with breakfast, lunch and dinner items made to order for each customer. All açaí bowls and smoothies are prepared without any ingredient fillers like ice, frozen yogurt, or artificial preservatives, providing the purest taste possible.
The menu features the widest variety of unique superfoods, including graviola, acerola, organic mangosteen, organic camu camu, organic spirulina, organic aronia, organic moringa, organic maca, bee pollen and more.
Guests can choose from a variety of delectable options, such as the Green Bowl (with graviola, organic spirulina and organic hemp seeds), the Dragon Bowl (featuring pitaya, coconut milk and bananas) and their signature Vitality Bowl (with organic açaí, strawberries and honey). Plus, fresh juices, smoothies, soups, panini and salads are available in each café.
The eatery will also include a full-service coffee bar with espresso and superfood drinks packed with antioxidant-rich açaí, pitaya and matcha, as well as kombucha and cold brew coffee on-tap.
“Simply put, we created Vitality Bowls to be a place where health-conscious individuals can go for a nutritional meal and enjoy a huge assortment of superfoods not typically found elsewhere,” said Tara Gilad, founder and owner of Vitality Bowls. “We believe that healthy food can be an option for fast casual food and we are excited to have Harold and Jackie on board with this. We look forward to watching them continue to grow their business in the Orlando area and sharing the Vitality Bowls message with the community.”
There are currently more than 140 Vitality Bowls locations open or in development across the United States.
