SAMBAZON Açaí Bowls Soar to New Heights at Charlotte Douglas International Airport


Market leader SAMBAZON expands to the new airport location

Travelers at Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) now have more options to experience healthy, fresh, plant-based dining while on the go. CLT welcomed SAMBAZON Açaí Bowls last month to Concourse D — marking the arrival of the southern California-based company’s newest airport location.

SAMBAZON’s quick-service Açaí Bowls concept puts the needs of the health-conscious traveler first. Visually appealing, the brand’s signature front counter displays an abundance of fresh fruit toppings — strawberries, banana, blueberries, mango, and pineapple — in addition to nutrient-dense nuts and seeds, and Açaí Bowl staples such as granola & coconut.

As the world’s leading purveyor of certified fair trade and organic açaí, the menu features SAMBAZON’s Berry Açaí Bowl, the Protein Açaí Bowl, Chocolate PB Açaí Bowl, Strawberry Sunrise Açaí Bowl, and the Dragon Fruit Bowl. The Bowl shop also offers açai and other fruit-focused smoothies, warm oatmeal bowls, and beverages like Amazon Energy drinks.

“Opening in a world-renowned airport like CLT is a milestone for our company,” said Ryan Black, SAMBAZON’s Chief Executive Officer. “SAMBAZON was founded to share the Delicious Powers of Açaí with the world, and this expansion helps us further this mission.” He adds, “Travelers know and love SAMBAZON’s organic and fair trade certified Açaí products at supermarkets and restaurants across the southeast, and we’ve received a very warm welcome.”

SAMBAZON at CLT is operated by global restaurateur HMSHost. HMSHost Vice President of Business Development Stephen Douglas shares Black’s sentiments, remarking on the immediate enthusiasm for SAMBAZON Açaí Bowls from both travelers and airport employees, “HMSHost has built its reputation on delivering a portfolio of restaurants that provide travelers with the power of choice when it comes to their dining experiences. Customers have embraced SAMBAZON as a delicious new addition to the concourse that’s perfect for any time of day.”

SAMBAZON Açaí Bowls is located at Charlotte Douglas International Airport Concourse D near Gate D2. Map to location here. Hours are 6 a.m. – 10:30 p.m.

Founded in 2000, SAMBAZON, an acronym for Sustainable Management of the Brazilian Amazon, was the first company to introduce “certified Açaí” to the world, supplying organic and Fair Trade certified Açaí products from a proprietary supply chain to ensure transparency from the “palm of the tree to the palm of your hand.” SAMBAZON recently launched Seeding Changea documentary highlighting mission-driven brands operating on triple-bottom-line business models and using commerce as a vehicle to create a more prosperous future for the people and the planet, similarly to how SAMBAZON uses the Delicious Powers of Açaí. All SAMBAZON products, including Smoothie Packs, Ready to Eat Açaí Bowls, Juices, Energy drinks, and Açaí Bites are made from USDA Organic, Non-GMO, vegan, and Fair For Life Fair Trade Certified Açaí. SAMBAZON’s Fair Trade certification has helped to protect the Amazon Rainforest and its rich biodiversity and has helped to positively impact thousands of local growers. With the commitment to invest a percentage of local Açaí purchases back into the community, SAMBAZON has contributed over $1 million to build healthcare centers, community centers, and schools.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
