Inspired by his family’s successful ice house, Jason Mazzarone created the Acai Café in 2012. Since then, SoBol has grown steadily. Jason took his culinary arts degree and background as a chef and teamed up with Jim Kalomiris who has more than 20 years experience in restaurant management, real estate and construction and developed SoBol into the franchised brand it is today. These co-founders found a niche in the quick casual market and are now poised to grow quickly through franchise development.
While Acai bowls were first in demand by yoga enthusiasts and Southern California surfers for an energy boosting meal, our customers span all ages, demographics and lifestyles. Since 2014, when SoBol first opened their doors, Acai has grown in popularity as a heart-healthy, Vitamin C boosting antioxidant rich food creating a business opportunity for today and the future.
