Growing from a single trailer to a nation-wide movement, Acai Express continues it’s dynamic expansion in the middle of a pandemic that has decimated numerous small businesses.
There is virtually no sector of the economy that has gone unaffected by the repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic that has swept the world. Many businesses have been forced to reevaluate their business plans and offerings, while unfortunately others have been forced to close altogether. At the beginning of the pandemic, we didn’t know how these changes would affect our growing business, but we are happy to report we are continuing to expand and thrive amid these uncertain times.
As we’ve previously covered, uncertain times make people gravitate towards craving comforting foods, and acai bowls fall under that category. We are opening 15 new locations in Puerto Rico, and continuing our US expansion in: Miami, North Carolina, South Carolina.
We believe this expansion in uncertain financial times is a testimony to the brand loyalty of our customers, our support efforts with our franchisees, and the result of consumers looking for more accessible and quick healthy food options.
More Stores Mean More Healthy Food Options
As a result of this pandemic, consumers have been seeking out healthy food options to sustain better health and immune systems during a time when it’s the most crucial. Shelter in place and lockdown measures have allowed people to slow down and make more conscious lifestyle and food choices.
Communities are looking for on-the-go food options that can sustain these lifestyle changes.
With some franchise owners opening in the midst of this pandemic, dedication and grit have been crucial in the store launches. New owners have taken full advantage of the marketing tools and material, and the support given by our headquarter team.
Growth With No Signs Of Stopping
The organic quick food service industry keeps expanding and is poised to surpass a 70 billion valuation by 2025 at this rate. There’s never been a better time to open an Acai Express franchise with a brand that is at the forefront of this industry.
When you open with Acai Express you’ll enjoy the benefits:
- Of a simple and proven business model that anyone can work with
- Delivery partnerships with UberEats, GrubHub, and DoorDash
- An established brand following with high engagement across all social media channels
Acai Express is one of the fastest growing concepts in the industry, and we can’t wait to keep spreading the benefits of the healthy living lifestyle across the country.
