Vitality Bowls Kicks Superfood Craze into High Gear in Santa Clara
Local Entrepreneur Opens New Café; Serves as Community Hub for Eating Healthy
SANTA CLARA, Calif. – The wait is over in Santa Clara.
Local residents, professionals and students no longer need to struggle with eating healthy when out and about. Vitality Bowls, which specializes in açaí bowls – a thick blend of the Amazon’s antioxidant-rich açaí berry, topped with a variety of superfoods – announced today the opening of its café in Santa Clara. The new franchise location will be the first for Chandani Singh, who plans to open additional cafés in the greater Santa Clara area.
“I have always been passionate about healthy living and eating and I knew that I wanted to own my own business,” said Singh, a former real estate professional. “After I met Tara and the rest of the Vitality Bowls team, I knew that this was the perfect fit for me. I look forward to opening many more locations and building a family business that I can pass down through the years.”
Slated to open on March 16th, the new restaurant will be located at 3555 Monroe St, Ste 70, conveniently situated in the luxury apartment complex and shopping center, Monticello Village. This restaurant will be the 24th Vitality Bowls café in California, joining the 31 locations based nationwide.
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. Vitality Bowls offers an antioxidant-rich menu, with breakfast, lunch and dinner items made to order for each customer. All açaí bowls and smoothies do not contain ingredient fillers such as ice, frozen yogurt, added sugar or artificial preservatives, giving the purest taste possible.
The menu, which is also offered for catering, features a variety of options, such as the Energy Bowl (with organic açaí, goji berries and bee pollen), the Dragon Bowl (featuring organic pitaya, coconut milk and bananas) and their signature Vitality Bowl (with organic açaí, strawberries and honey). Additionally, the brand recently announced exclusive additions to their kids menu. Plus, fresh juices, organic soups, panini and salads are available in each café.
The eatery will also include a full-service coffee bar, complete with espresso and superfood drinks that are packed with antioxidant-rich açaí, pitaya and matcha – for example, the Açaí Latte (espresso, açaí, coconut sugar, steamed almond milk) or the Superfood Mocha (espresso, CaCoCo superfood chocolate blend, steamed milk). Organic cold brew nitrogen-poured coffee and organic kombucha will also be available on-tap.
“Simply put, we created Vitality Bowls to be a place where health-conscious individuals can go for a nutritional meal,” said Tara Gilad, founder and co-owner of Vitality Bowls. “We believe that healthy food can be an option for fast casual food and we are excited to have Chandani on board with this. We look forward to watching her grow her business in Santa Clara and sharing the Vitality Bowls message with the community.”
Since launching in 2011, the brand has ignited significant growth. In 2014, the concept began franchising and now has nearly 70 locations open and in development across the country.
