Frutta Bowls Coming to Downtown Allentown ArtsWalk

City Center Investment Corp., the real estate development company revitalizing downtown Allentown, Pennsylvania, today announced a Frutta Bowls franchise will open on the ArtsWalk in downtown Allentown in mid-December 2019.

Frutta Bowls is the fastest-growing superfoods café in the nation, providing healthy alternatives to traditional fast food. The chain offers bowls based with acai, pitaya, kale or oatmeal, as well as sweet or savory toast, smoothies and organic coffee. The cafe will be open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., with extended evening hours when the Lehigh Valley Phantoms play at PPL Center.

Frutta Bowls will occupy a 745-square-foot space on the ArtsWalk across from the new Downtown Allentown Market food hall and next to the newly renovated ArtsWalk Pocket Park. The franchise is owned and will be operated by Samantha and John Hamati-Sayegh. 

“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.

“It’s a testament to downtown Allentown’s successful revitalization that City Center Allentown has attracted another national brand and now has 30 permanent retailers, including Frutta Bowls,” said City Center Retail Leasing & Activation Manager Natalia Stezenko. “We think Frutta Bowls will be an excellent fit on the ArtsWalk.”

Frutta Bowls started in 2016 with two locations in Howell and Freehold, New Jersey. It has since grown into a nationwide concept, providing healthy and delicious food and getting involved in the communities surrounding each location.
