SAMBAZON Açaí Bowls ATL is the brand’s third airport location to open recently, following the company’s Orange County John Wayne location, and foray into the aviation world, with its Charlotte Douglas International Airport space, both opening last year.

As the world’s first Certified Fair Trade and Organic Açaí company, responsible for 50% of Açaí exported from Brazil, SAMBAZON has led the way with its vertically integrated supply chain. Operating two advanced, eco-friendly processing facilities in Brazil, SAMBAZON upholds the highest standards, ensuring Açaí quality and traceability “from the palm of the tree to the palm of your hand.”

“Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is the most frequented airport in the world, and having a presence there speaks to the love people have for both Açaí bowls and SAMBAZON,” says Co-Founder and CEO, Ryan Black. “We are proud to partner with Verge Tersylbran JV in this location, and this marks just the beginning of our Açai Bowl shop expansion, with multiple international airport openings on the horizon for 2024.”

Operated by the ACDBE-certified Principals at Verge Tersylbran JV, SAMBAZON at ATL offers a menu tailored to health-conscious travelers, featuring fresh fruit and superfood toppings.

Additionally, the Bowl Shop offers Açaí and other fruit-focused smoothies, warm oatmeal bowls, and grab-and-go beverages like SAMBAZON’s Amazon Energy drinks.

Verge Tersylbran JV principals, Tran Nguyen and Brandon Delley, echo Black’s enthusiasm for serving SAMBAZON Açaí Bowls to travelers, stating, “We believe in partnering with restaurant brands that focus on delicious food with integrity. Nourishing, on-the-go dining is what today’s travelers seek in airports, and partnering with SAMBAZON Açaí Bowls enables us to offer fresh, healthier options that cater to our guests’ needs and can be enjoyed any time of day.”
