When Roy and Tara Gilad fell in love with Acai berries years ago they couldn’t believe that something so delicious can be so purifying and healthy.
Having always lived a healthy lifestyle, they felt that their community as a whole needed a healthier eating option. They wanted to build a place where people could eat delicious superfoods made of the finest chemical free affordable ingredients quickly. In 2011, they founded Vitality Bowls®.

di'lishi is the creation of Marlo Francis from Asheboro, NC. Her first experience with frozen yogurt came after her son told her about discovering the self-serve concept in a neighboring state when he left for college - and he was eager for her to try it when she planned her next visit. Before that could happen, though, Marlo happened upon a bar for herself, while travelling to a larger city near her hometown. After several repeat visits - including eventually traveling to see her son and trying the yogurt bar in his college town, it didn't take long before she began dreaming about opening a shop of her own - one that reflected her unique interpretation of the concept. She wanted to create an environment that invited people to come in and stay awhile. She wanted to serve the finest yogurt and toppings that she could find, as well as a way to regularly contribute to the community around her.
After all of her hard work, the result was di'lishi! She built her model on what have become the three foundational pillars of the company: good for the body, good for the environment and good for the community. With these pillars firmly in place, di'lishi has been a success from the start! Fortifying these three pivotal pillars has made di'lishi, what Marlo calls, "fro-yo recession-proof" - meaning it's built to stand the test of time, instead of being just another quick cookie cutter following a trend. We, at di'lishi, are firm believers in our product and concept - and we are committed to helping you make your store profitable today and in the future.
The decision to throw my 'cup' into the ring came after a lot of research and a growing belief that even though the market was becoming riddled with new chains and independent shops - they were all essentially playing follow the leader. Small stores clustered in big cities... limited variety... shockingly bright... or feminine... or childlike... and yet, all of them drawing a decent crowd because of the trend. So I asked myself - what did these shops have to offer their customers at the end of the trend? Could I create a unique interpretation that would outlast the trend and provide my customers with an experience that would bring them back day after day and year after year... and if so, what would that look like? As these questions rolled around under my big hair, they found answers, and once the answers grew wings, di'lishi was born. - Marlo Francis
