"THE NEWEST WAVE OF THE HEALTH FOOD REVOLUTION... THE ACAI BERRY. IT COMES FROM THE ACAI PALM TREE, WHICH IS NATIVE TO CENTRAL AND SOUTH AMERICA. WHILE THERE ARE MANY CLAIMS FOR IT BEING A SUPER FRUIT, CAN AID IN WEIGHT LOSS AND HELP WITH OTHER MEDICAL ISSUES, ONE THING IS ABUNDANTLY CLEAR, IT IS A KEY PART TO A HEALTHY DIET!"
For most people, the 20’s are a time of self-discovery and figuring out just what it is that you want to do with life…unless, you are Brooke Gagliano, CEO of Frutta Bowls. At age 23, Brooke opened the first Frutta Bowls and not two years later, has facilitated the opening of 9 other Frutta Bowl franchises. With over 70 franchises in the works, this 25-year-old has not only discovered what she wants but has big ideas for her next steps.
Frutta Bowls may have started in 2016, but Brooke says she discovered a passion for helping people live a healthy life long before that. As an athlete in high school and college, Brooke originally thought her career path would be one focused on sports and training. “I became a personal trainer in 2012 while I was in college, and I loved being able to make people happy by showing them awesome results of their hard work”. Brooke continued training during her college years and developed her own personal training company, where she trained clients right up until a life-changing trip in 2016. In February of 2016, while visiting friends in California, Brooke had her first experience with an açaí shop. “I got so excited when I had an açaí bowl for the first time, I face-timed my whole family and told them this was what I wanted to do”.
