Our Story

Calii Love founder Dan Gunam, tired of the toxic work environments in many restaurants, knew the industry could do better. He built his fresh food concept on the idea of love and positivity, not only for the customer, but the employees, community, and the Earth, too. Calii Love opened in 2016 and began spreading positivity through a chef and nutritionist driven menu. The food is designed to be nutritious and delicious. It is a fast food concept that is tasty and healthy for body and soul.

Fresh, healthy, organic, and sustainable restaurants are the biggest trend sweeping the globe. As health conscious younger generations reject processed food, Calii Love is the perfect franchise concept to capture their attention. This segment is exploding with new brands entering the competition, but Calii Love is differentiated from the pack with their wide variety of smoothie, acai, breakfast, and poke bowls, salads, café items, juices, and smoothies.

Inspired by Californian sun and Hawaiian breezes, Calii Love offers a space apart from work and home. It’s a place to unwind, recharge. It’s more than a fast casual restaurant, more than a coffee shop. It’s a wellness hub. For everyone.
