BY FAST CASUAL – Vitality Bowls, which specializes in açaí bowls topped with a variety of superfoods, is opening in Denver. The new franchise location will be the first for business partners Venkata Punati, Krishna Dhulipalla and Vikas Chintha who plan to open additional cafés in the Denver region, according to a company press release.
“From the first bite, I knew it was the start of a new journey for me,” said Venkata, a seasoned operator of fast food and retail businesses. “The incredible taste of the fresh ingredients and the feeling it provides is just an unbeatable combination.”
Slated to open on Jan. 22 in Denver’s heavily trafficked Cherry Creek Mall, the restaurant will be the first Vitality Bowls café in Colorado. It joins an additional 19 locations nationwide.
“Simply put, we’ve created an environment where our guests discover that eating healthy superfoods can taste great in a variety of ways,” said Tara Gilad, founder and owner of Vitality Bowls. “We look forward to seeing Venkata and general manager Jasmine Punati expand their business in Denver and share the Vitality Bowls movement with the community.”
Since launching in 2011 the brand has signed development deals for nearly 40 units, Gilad said.
