Our Journey of Health and Wellness

Sunshine’s Health Food Store & Vegetarian Deli is a cozy neighborhood jewel nestled right across the way from University of Houston’s main campus. Known for its scrumptious vegetarian food, refreshing raw salads, fresh fruit juices and super knowledgeable staff; Sunshine’s has become the all-inclusive one-stop shop for wellness education and healthy foods. Opened in 1983 by Vergis Bourgeois, better known as “Sunshine”, Sunshine’s was one of the first health food stores serving raw and cooked vegetarian dishes in Houston.


Sunshine’s is currently operated by Vergis’s daughter, Arga V. Bourgeois, one of Houston’s best raw food and vegetarian chefs who has also produced the ever-popular DVD ‘Raw Food Delights’. With over 30 years of providing the community with wellness and health education, Arga is quoted with saying “Sunshine’s has evolved over the last three decades into a socially responsible, community-minded, lifestyle wellness deli and health store providing vegetarian and raw foods with flavor.”



While creating delightful vegetarian and raw food dishes, Sunshine’s Health Food Store is also known for stocking a wealthy inventory of dietary supplements, all natural detoxifiers and hard to find skin care products and grocery items. In addition to healthy food and wellness products, Sunshine’s provides free classes to the community on a variety of health and wellness topics including vegetarian cooking. Sunshine’s feels that providing these classes are a part of their commitment to social responsibility while also providing an eco-friendly and harmonious environment for their employees and customers.

Located in a very popular university area of Houston, Sunshine’s stays on the forefront of today’s virtual & tech trends by providing free Wi-Fi for their customers and University of Houston students, and hosts monthly contest via Facebook/Twitter/FourSquare. As Sunshine’s continues to grow, social media will continue to be a huge tool for communicating with their diverse audience including developing their own version of Sunshine’s daily deal perks.
