Two years after launching its franchise opportunity, Rush Bowls has inked a deal bringing Rush Bowls to over 100 units in development, a significant company milestone as the brand expands throughout the United States and internationally.

Signed Andy Wimmer for three units in Columbus, OH, the development deal joins a slew of development announcements across 17 states and Canada, totaling over 100 stores open or under development. The company expects at least 40 units to be open by the end of 2019.

“Growing to over 100 stores is an incredible accomplishment,” says founder and CEO Andrew Pudalov. “It is a testament to the growth of the natural foods industry and signifies how Rush Bowls is resonating with customers and communities across the country. This is just the beginning for Rush Bowls and I am excited for our continued growth and innovation in the years to come.”

Founded in 2004, Rush Bowls offers meals crafted from all-natural fruit, topped with organic granola and honey, and blended with protein, vitamins and other nutritious ingredients that taste delicious while promoting a healthy lifestyle. Customers can choose from over 40 signature bowls or all-natural smoothies made with fruit and vegetable bases, including acai, kale and avocado.

“Our No. 1 priority is 100 percent all-natural nutrition, which makes Rush Bowls different from other grab-and-go concepts,” Pudalov noted. “Rush Bowls’ meals are crafted from the finest fruits and vegetables, with fresh toppings like organic granola, hand-grinded peanut butter and jam made in-house to ensure the highest quality and taste for our customers.”

Over the past 15 years, Rush Bowls has cultivated a loyal following with its menu specializing in healthy, all-natural, fruit-blended meals-in-a-bowl for those on the go. Bowls are also available in vegan, gluten-free, soy-free and dairy free options, and anything can be custom made to cater to any and all dietary needs. 

“Rush Bowls is experiencing rapid growth and entering vibrant communities where healthy lifestyles are priority,” adds Pudalov. “We are very excited with the growth of Rush Bowls and look forward to our continued growth, domestically and internationally.”
