Quite a few businesses in Cedar Falls have had to close down over the past month.

We shared with you last month that Carter House Market & Cafe closed its doors mid September "temporarily." A week later David's Taphouse & Dumplings shut down as well.

Luckily, it looks like the closures seem to be tapering off for the time being...

A new eatery is opening right in the heart of Downtown Cedar Falls. Big Açaí, an açaí bowl franchise is coming to the Cedar Valley.

According to the business' website, "our mission is to help you create healthy, delicious  treats in great tasting bowls, smoothies, toasts and coffees primarily using organic, plant-based ingredients."

Açaí Bowls are vegan sorbet topped with banana, granola, and additional toppings.

Big Açaí has ten locations in Iowa so far, and the Cedar Falls location will be its eleventh. The Iowa locations include stores in:

  • Ames
  • Ankeny
  • Downtown Des Moines
  • West Des Moines
  • Fairfield
  • Johnston
  • Pella
  • Marshalltown (Mobile Cafe)
  • Okojobi (Mobile Cafe)
  • Arnolds Park

The newest Cedar Falls spot will be located at 100 East 2nd Street Suite 106. There is no official word on when this location will open up, but we do know that it will open sometime this month. We will continue to keep you updated as we get more details about the official opening date.
