With six locations open throughout Colorado, Rush Bowls is expanding in its home state. The fast-casual chain founded in Boulder, known for its fresh and healthy meals-in-a-bowl, is opening a new store in Broomfield, about 15 miles from the original location.
The new store, opening on October 15, is located at 12161 Sheridan Blvd in Broomfield and is owned by partnering entrepreneurial couples David and Angie Marshall and Doug and Candice Vejnar.
"We are thrilled to bring Rush Bowls to Broomfield, Colorado," says David Marshall. “We all wanted to encourage healthier lifestyles in our own families and after trying Rush Bowls we realized how delicious and convenient eating can be. We are excited for the opportunity to bring healthy eating to Broomfield.”
David Marshall has worked in commercial banking for 25 years while Doug Vejnar works in the oil and gas technology field. The pair looked into franchises individually at first but ultimately decided to partner together, alongside their wives, Angie Marshall and Candice Vejnar. After evaluating several franchise concepts, the business partners came across Rush Bowls when Marshall’s kids visited Boulder, tried the bowls and loved them.
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.
“Rush Bowls’ top priorities are 100 percent all-natural nutrition as well as diverse and delicious options of bowls and smoothies. This makes Rush Bowls different from other grab-and-go concepts,” founder and CEO Andrew Pudalov says. “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 all dietary needs.
“We are very excited to see the Marshalls and Vejnars continue our expansion throughout Colorado,” adds Pudalov. “We are incredibly proud of Rush Bowls’ growth, and we are excited to build upon our foundation in our home state.”
The local expansion comes at a time when Rush Bowls continues to rapidly expand its national footprint. Today, there are locations operating in 13 states and more than 120 additional Rush Bowls’ in various stages of development across 20 states.
