When Brad and Marcy Olsen opened Thrive! back in 2011, they envisioned a space that would focus on all aspects of healthy living—somewhere you could eat healthy foods and minimally processed supplements amid an active community of like-minded health professionals and businesses.
Acai—dark purple berries that are rich in antioxidants—are the foundation of Thrive's main product, acai bowls. Each bowl contains a blend of frozen acai and other antioxidant-rich fruits, topped with granola and fresh fruit with a drizzle of honey. But what the bowls don’t contain is equally important: All acai bowls are dairy-free, soy-free, and can be made without gluten or added sugars. Thrive also promotes healthy living with its selection of whole-food supplements. These can help raise the body’s antioxidant levels, which in turn may slow down the damage of cells by free radicals.
