Rush Bowls has opened its first Idaho location.
Located at 1774 W State Street in Boise, the store opened on November 5 and is owned and operated by Idaho natives Heidi and Nate Myers. The couple has also signed on to open at least two more Boise-area locations over the next several years.
“We’re thrilled to bring Rush Bowls to the Boise community,” says Heidi. “Living a healthy lifestyle has always been very important to our family, and we know Rush Bowls will be a great addition to the city. The delicious menu items and the on-the-go nature of the brand allows for everyone to enjoy a healthy lifestyle in a convenient way.”
The couple, who met while attending Boise State University, have both worked in health-related fields prior to opening their Rush Bowls location. Nate has worked as a pharmacist for the last 14 years and will continue his work while running their Rush Bowls location. Heidi recently began working as a local fitness instructor after spending the lasting 14 years raising the couple’s five children, and is excited to bring such a healthy option to the growing community.
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 Myers continue our expansion throughout Boise,” adds Pudalov. “We are incredibly proud of Rush Bowls’ growth, and we are excited to build upon our foundation throughout the West.”
The local expansion comes at a time when Rush Bowls continues to rapidly expand its national footprint. Today, there are 24 locations operating in 14 states and more than 120 additional Rush Bowls’ in various stages of development across 20 states.
