In the beginning of 2014, one of my workout friends in the South Bay got me hooked on Acai bowls. He and I would go every day after our workouts and I couldn't believe how easy it was for me to eat healthy. For once, eating healthy tasted amazing. After a while of driving to Redondo Beach every day I started looking for a shop that specialized in Acai bowls closer to me. There wasn't really anything around, and with me preaching about it every day, I realized that this was what I wanted to do. At 23 years old I didn't really have much to lose, I was a union carpenter that enjoyed what I was doing, but didn’t really see a future in that. I took what I learned as a carpenter and designed, drew up my own blue prints and built everything myself. It was an awesome experience, it’s pretty cool to be able to say I built my business from the ground up.
