BAY TERRACE, QUEENS — A father-daughter team is opening an acai bowl and smoothie shop in the Bay Terrace Shopping Center next week.
Queens native Peter Kalogeropoulos and his two daughters, Olivia and Alexis, are behind the newest franchise location of SoBol, opening Jan. 15 in the shopping center.
Kalogeropoulos‘ daughters were working at a SoBol location in Wantagh, where the family lives, when they fell in love with the company and decided to sign on with their father as franchisees.
“We chose this particular location because of the positive atmosphere,” Peter and Olivia Kalogeropoulos said in a statement. “We personally feel that is the heartbeat of Queens!”

It is the company’s second Queens location: SoBol also has a cafe on Ditmars Boulevard in Astoria, according to its website.
