Sally Matiszik has always loved food, to the point that she's been dining all over St. Louis with an international gourmet club for the past five years. When she started working with Vitality Bowls to open Missouri's first franchise location this year, she was convinced she'd found the perfect foodie-friendly outlet for herself, and for St. Louis.
"It's a lifestyle-based restaurant," Matiszik says. "Not just a trend."Matiszik and her husband Mark opened Vitality Bowls (8029 Dale Avenue, Richmond Heights) on July 12, serving up juices, smoothies, panini sandwiches and even St. Louis' first custom-made nitro matcha tea, which comes from Park Avenue Coffee. After being a stay-at-home-mom and a commissioned sales rep, Matiszik dropped her job to devote herself to Vitality Bowls. (Her husband, who retains his, also helps.)
