UPDATE 6-26-2020: Vitality Bowls in Plano opens on June 26. It specializes in açaí bowls – a thick blend of the Amazon's antioxidant-rich açaí berry, topped with a variety of superfoods.
The hot-hot trend of restaurants specializing in healthy "bowls" has not dimmed and here's a new one coming to Plano: Vitality Bowls, the superfood café specializing in açaí bowls, smoothies, fresh juices, salads and paninis, will open its first location in Plano, at the Polo Towne Crossing center at 2100 Dallas Pkwy., #132.
According to a release, the location is from Suzette and Mike Crews and it will open in April.
Vitality entered the DFW area in 2018, with a restaurant that opened in Preston Hollow Village. There are now two locations in Frisco and another coming soon to Southlake.
Açaí bowls are Vitality Bowls' specialty. They feature a thick blend of the Amazon's antioxidant-rich berry, topped with a variety of superfoods, including graviola, acerola, mangosteen, camu camu, spirulina, aronia, moringa, and maca.
Guests can choose from options such as the Green Bowl, with organic graviola, spirulina, and hemp seeds; the Dragon Bowl, with organic pitaya, coconut milk, and bananas; and the signature Vitality Bowl, with organic açaí, strawberries, and honey.
Vitality also serves juices, smoothies, soups, panini, salads, and organic kombucha on-tap.
The concept was founded in 2011 in San Ramon, California, by Roy and Tara Gilad, who discovered their daughter had severe food allergies and wanted to find alternatives.
There are currently more than 140 Vitality Bowls locations open or in development across the United States.
"Suzette and I have been very impressed by the healthy options offered by Vitality Bowls and we believe it can make an impact on our family and provide healthy and delicious alternatives to our Plano neighbors," says Mike Crews in a statement.
He and Suzette plan to open more locations in the area in an effort to bring health-focused food to the community.
