In downtown Allentown a green mouth is being replaced by a fruit bowl.
City Center Investment Corp. said that a Frutta Bowls franchise will be opening in December on the ArtsWalk in the space that previously housed Greenmouth Juice Bar and Café.
Like Greenmouth, it also has an emphasis on healthy options. This national franchise offers fruit bowls based with acai, pitaya, kale or oatmeal. It will have gluten, soy and dairy free options available. Besides the fruit bowls, it will also serve smoothies and organic coffee daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
“We’re so excited to open our first Frutta Bowls in this awesome location on the ArtsWalk and bring fresh, healthy superfoods to downtown Allentown’s residents, professionals and visitors,” said John Hamati-Sayegh, co-owner of the franchise.
The eatery will occupy a 745-square-foot space across from the new Downtown Allentown Market food hall.
Frutta Bowls started in 2016 with two locations in Howell and Freehold, New Jersey. It has since grown into a nationwide concept.
