Fast-growing, health-conscious convenience store and neighborhood deli, Locali, now offers four pre-packaged vegan and gluten-free quinoa salad bowls in Whole Foods Market stores throughout Southern California. Locali, which has locations in Hollywood, West Hollywood, Venice and Downtown Los Angeles, is changing the way consumers view healthy eating. Its diverse menu of award-winning, “last meal-worthy” salads, sandwiches, smoothies has captured the attention of influential companies across the nation, and was asked to cater an event at the United State of Women Summit in May 2018, in partnership with Postmates.

For nearly 10 years, Locali Co-Founders Greg Horos and Melissa Rosen (a certified health counselor) have been committed to bridging dietary restrictions with their award-winning range of vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and paleo menu options. Whole Foods offers four of Locali’s “Killer Quinoa Bowls,” including: The Big Daddy with quinoa, arugula, vegan and gluten-free chicken marinated in spicy vegan buffalo sauce, celery, black beans and creamy dill dressing; The Krazy Kale with quinoa, shredded kale, black beans, chopped tomatoes, cucumber, sunflower seeds and chipotle lime dressing; The Odyssey with quinoa, spinach, hummus, chickpeas, artichoke tapenade, tomato, cucumber, kalamata olives and creamy dill dressing; and The Deconstructed BLT with quinoa, chopped romaine, tempeh bacon, tomato, avocado and maple mustard dressing.

Award-winning creations such as the Baaadasss Breakfast Sandwich and vegan Reuben (recently featured on ABC 7’s “Eye on L.A.” as one of the best five sandwiches in the city), have garnered Locali a loyal cult following. In addition to its expanding wholesale business, the part female-owned company is in growth mode, with its first franchised locations slated to open later this year.

Los Angeles neighborhood convenience store and deli Locali is committed to serving a diverse menu of healthy and responsibly sourced, yet soul-satisfying, last meal-worthy salads, sandwiches, smoothies and more. There’s something for everyone on the menu, which offers a bridge to dietary restrictions, from vegetarian, vegan and vegan-friendly fare to gluten-free and paleo options. Locali, which is Italian for “the place to be at,” has locations in Venice, West Hollywood, Hollywood and Downtown L.A. with new franchised locations slated to open in 2018.
