Sweetberry Celebrates 17th Location With Military Franchisees

Sweetberry Virginia Beach Franchisees Alex & Jessyl Lange

On May 28th, 2019 Sweetberry Bowls opened its 17th location in Virginia Beach, VA. A healthy fast casual chain founded in 2017, Sweetberry has created a footprint across NJ, FL, IL, and VA in just under 4 years. Based in NJ, with a portfolio of 13 Corporate Stores, and 4 Franchises, Sweetberry is expanding along the East Coast this year.

Alex Lange (active Navy Chief) and Jessyl Lange (Army Veteran) are a military couple that approached Sweetberry with the vision of expanding the brand in to Virginia. The pair had dreams of building their own business while transitioning to civilian life on the horizon. They met with the Sweetberry Team in New Jersey to visit stores and meet the team, and decided that their values aligned with the Sweetberry Mission Statement of spreading good vibes.

With a lot of hard work, ambition, and the help of a VA loan and the Sweetberry Team, the power couple made their first location happen with doors open on Tuesday May 28th, 2019. This is the first of many franchise units they are planning on opening in Virginia.

Virginia Beach offers acai bowls, oatmeal, smoothies, wraps, salads, & poke and is open everyday. For more information on store hours and location, check the Company Website. For franchising information, visit Sweetberry Franchise.
