Australian-inspired, Oklahoma-based, acai concept Bondi Bowls appears poised to make its California debut with a storefront at 155 5th St in Huntington Beach, according to a commercial tenant improvement application filed with the city, as well as a Google listing for the business.
“We are so excited to be bringing the Australian culture to Huntington Beach,” Bondi Bowls founder Bailey Wilson tells What Now Orange County, adding, “We look forward to growing in [the] community with ya’ll!”
Wilson began the company as a humble food truck in June 2020, at the age of 24, and within five months she had already begun franchising the concept. To date, there are 17 trucks traversing eight states, as well as an outpost in Wilson’s hometown of Edmond, OK, and two kiosks in Oklahoma sporting facilities.
The brand offers vegan, all-natural acai bowls, smoothies, juices, and health shots that eschew refined sugars and promotes clean eating. Between its trucks and storefront, the menu consists of 12 different bowls, such as the signature Bondi, an acai blend topped with homemade granola, sliced banana, and strawberry, the pitaya-based Bronte topped with granola, sliced banana, and drizzled Nutella, and the Hiwassee, a pitaya bowl served with granola, kiwi, and blueberry that takes its name from Oklahoma’s Lake Hiwassee, where Wilson grew up.
Incidentally, the Huntington Beach location seems particularly resonant for Wilson, who said in an interview published on The Entrepreneur’s Studio’s YouTube account three months ago, “I have this dream to be in Huntington Beach, California that I would love to make a reality.”
