Josh and Ashley Porteous discovered the health benefits of the Acai berry after spending a year volunteering in Tanzania.
Unwell from some nasty parasites that they encountered in third world countries, they retreated to Ashley’s hometown of Santa Barbara, California, to focus on their health in preparation for the arrival of their first child. This is where they were first introduced to the Acai bowl and the world of superfoods. The couple wholeheartedly embraced this style of healthy eating into their daily regimen.
And then came the ‘light bulb’ moment and Bare Naked Bowls was born.
Josh and Ashley decided to create a casual and welcoming superfood café serving delicious concoctions of fresh, organic ingredients including acai bowls. For the couple, the philosophy of eating well and doing good was fundamental to the reasons for establishing the cafe. Bare Naked Bowls inspires everyone to eat better, live healthier and give back to those less fortunate.
Josh and Ashley launched the first Bare Naked Bowls in Manly, NSW. Bare Naked Bowls has quickly gained reputation as an acai bowl market leader and serves as a health hub, beaming and buzzing with locals lining up to sample the cutting-edge range of superfoods. Bare Naked Bowls leads the market in providing the latest superfoods to their ever growing client base.
