An Ode to Venice Beach
Known for its picturesque views and bohemian spirit, Venice Beach is a place that invites locals and tourists alike to create and experience a vibrant cultural hub. When our team first deliberated on a pop-up store location, we were captivated by this beach town – with its swaying palm trees, buzzing art scene, and eclectic mix of humanity – and we couldn’t help but feel like we were living in a dreamy postcard.
In 2016, we put pen to paper and officially moved into the neighborhood.
In the next two years, our Venice story unfolded through a humble pop-up storefront along Ocean Front Walk. Proudly named the “Home of the Original Coconut Bowl,” our Venice pop-up allowed us to be playful and imaginative, like a child with crayons and limitless possibilities (we literally busted out some chalk and stenciled fruit shapes and puns on our sidewalk). In many ways, Venice has taught us to dream big and to not take ourselves too seriously.
But even good things can come to an end – and after two years of serving up acai bowls in this sun-kissed town, we’re sad but excited to announce that starting this month, we’re ending our chapter in Venice and writing another amazing story elsewhere (yes to more good things ahead!).
Venice Beach community – from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for the opportunity to serve you these last two years, and for embracing our mission of making healthy eating fun and accessible for everyone. We could probably write a whole book on how you’ve made a lasting impact on us (and thank you for capturing our time in Venice so beautifully on the ‘gram – we’ll be able to scroll through when the nostalgia hits us). We will always carry your uniqueness and free-spirited vibe with us, and we hope you’ll continue following our journey in 2019.
