Vitality Bowls to open ‘superfood café’ in downtown San Marcos

Vitality Bowls, renowned for its dynamic café vibe and superfood menu filled with extraordinary tastes, has signed an agreement with local entrepreneur Ashley Wright to open the first café in San Marcos.

Wright is planning for a Spring 2018 opening at The Local San Marcos (210 North Edward Gary Street, Unit 212). Conveniently situated near Texas State University, local residents, professionals and students will have easy access to healthier food options while out and about.

“The fresh ingredients and superfoods that Vitality Bowls offers are unlike any other fast-casual eatery options in the San Marcos area,” said Wright, a National Academy Sports Medicine fitness trainer and integrative nutrition counselor, with a strong background in agriculture and food supply chain. “My first bite of an açaí bowl at Vitality Bowls was a game-changer. I want to bring that same experience to everyone in San Marcos.”

The menu 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 the signature Vitality Bowl (with organic açaí, strawberries and honey). Additionally, the brand recently announced exclusive additions to its kids menu. Plus, fresh juices, 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.

“Ashley is exactly the right entrepreneur to grow the brand in San Marcos,” said Tara Gilad, co-founder of Vitality Bowls. “Her business intellect is outstanding. We are eager to see Ashley fill the demand for a healthy fast casual café in San Marcos.”

There are currently more than 48 Vitality Bowls restaurants across the United States with 50-plus franchise units under development.
