FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (December 2021) ⎼ Pura Vida, the beloved wellness-driven all-day cafe celebrated for its healthy extensive menu and tropical chic vibe, proudly continues its South Florida expansion within the very city in which husband-wife founders, Omer and Jennifer Horev, grew up – Fort Lauderdale. Launching in December 2021 in Las Olas, this marks Pura Vida’s ninth restaurant opening and the brand’s first location in Broward County, with anticipated plans for several additional Broward County outposts to come within the next 12-24 months.

“I am absolutely thrilled to be able to expand the Pura Vida brand into the great city of Fort Lauderdale – the very city which led to the start of my real estate career. Having lived in the area from 2005-2010, I am excited to be able to go back and I’m honored to have the opportunity for Pura Vida to be a part of it.” – Omer Horev, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of Pura Vida

Boasting 4,442 square feet of outdoor dining space, Pura Vida Las Olas is designed in the brand’s signature Instagram-worthy aesthetic, characterized by minimalist design elements, natural tones, and light wooden finishes that create a bright and airy space. Located at the Society Las Olas building in Fort Lauderdale, the latest unveiling is nestled behind Multidisciplinary artist, Daniel Popper’s iconic “Thrive” sculpture and is poised to establish itself as an all-day breakfast, brunch, and lunch destination for locals and visitors.

“Aside from offering locals a new go-to spot for all-day breakfast and lunch, we are also very much looking forward to collaborating with the community and surrounding local businesses. I also grew up in the Weston / Fort Lauderdale area, so this is a very special location for me as well. My family and friends are absolutely thrilled we are finally bringing the Pura Vida concept to Broward! ” – Jennifer Horev, Chief Brand Officer and Founder of Pura Vida

Led and founded by husband-wife team Omer and Jennifer Horev, what initially started out as a side passion project quickly expanded into a prominent health-focused restaurant and lifestyle brand with several outposts across South Florida.
