The King of Prussia Town Center is nearing full occupancy, but there’s room for at least one more food-and-beverage tenant: a California-based superfoods café.
Fast-casual café company Vitality Bowls has signed a lease to occupy 1,097 square feet of space at the King of Prussia Town Center — off the Main Street and adjacent to LA Fitness. Slated to open in late spring or early summer, the San Ramon-based company is known for its organic acai bowls and smoothies, and made-to-order juices and paninis, writes Kenneth Hilario in Philadelphia Business Journal.
Vitality Bowls first began franchising in 2014, and has since grown to 98 cafés open or in development in the United States. The King of Prussia Town Center location is the company’s first café in Pennsylvania.
Vitality Bowls chose the Town Center for the tenant mix of food and beverage operators and retailers and residential apartments that created the “live-work-play” environment the company looked for in the market, according to Sam Kotler of MSC Retail, who represented Vitality Bowls in the Town Center transaction
“That was our main reasoning for picking this site. With our first entry into the market, we wanted to make sure we got off on the right foot,” said Kotler, who represents the franchisee in southeastern Pennsylvania during the California company’s expansion.
King of Prussia Town Center is the retail component of the Village at Valley Forge, a 122-acre master planned, mixed-use development that includes a 125,000-square-foot Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia building and, eventually, up to 2,500 residential units and upwards of 1.5 million square feet of office space.
The Town Center is near full occupancy, and it’s already recruited an impressive roster of tenants: retailers Nordstrom Rack, ULTA, among others; and restaurants Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse, Washington, D.C.’s District Taco and Chicago’s Naf Naf Grill, among others.
