Featured in QSR Magazine on Launching Franchise Opportunity
Today, consumers are obsessed and serious about buying products made of all-natural ingredients and dining in at fast casual restaurants. They have become two of the top trends in the food industry within the past couple of years. Rush Bowls, based out of Boulder, Colorado, is the epitome of these two trends and everyone is loving it. Rush Bowls opened in 2004 and since then has acquired loyal customers who love that Rush Bowls can fulfill their demands of healthier, all-natural, great tasting food.
“We never get tired of seeing people smile upon their first bite of a Rush Bowl and look forward to introducing even more consumers to this easy and delicious way to keep health in their everyday lives.” – Andrew Pudalov, Rush Bowls founder.
With guidance from an experienced team of executives, low-cost startup plan, and a loyal consumer base, Rush Bowls has decided to launch a franchise opportunity. With many entrepreneurs interested in this concept, Rush Bowls is planning to open as many as 25 franchise locations across the nation along with three to five additional corporate stores in the next following years!
“With sales of healthy and all-natural food anticipated to reach $1 trillion by 2017, this is a massive market that continues to grow rapidly.”
Pudalov started his career in New York’s financial sector where he found himself lacking healthy eating options, especially for kids. After 15 years of this thought sitting in the back of his mind, he moved to Boulder to start a business that aligned with his personal values and ambitions. In 2004, he launched Rush Bowls. Over the years, consumers have found Rush Bowls to be committed to crafting healthy meals with all-natural fruit, granola and honey, and blended with nutritious ingredients. Rush Bowls is also committed to accommodating specific dietary restrictions by offering vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, dairy free, and custom made options. In 2011, Rush Bowls decided to expand and started wholesaling frozen products to Wholefoods and Amazon.
“Our focus has always been to create an environment where people can eat healthy, eat well, and truly enjoy the unadulterated and organic elements of the earth. Customers prefer Rush Bowls primarily because it’s a positive meal choice, but also because it’s an easier option when on the go.”
Rush Bowls has received hundreds of inquiries about franchising opportunities in the past few years, so Pudalov partnered with restaurateur Buddy Brown. Brown is one of the most successful franchise operators in the country and together the two have launched the Rush Bowls franchise and are looking for select entrepreneurs to partner with. They are looking for individuals who have a strong passion for healthy, fast dining and who possess a solid background in restaurant management.
“Rush Bowls has unlimited growth potential and we can operate in almost all types of locations where Millennials or young professionals exist. From colleges and universities to sports arenas, airports, and malls, we are poised to grow everywhere. In smaller footprints, Rush Bowls is a perfect complement to business such as gyms, coffee houses, and health food stores.”
The initial investment to open a Rush Bowls franchise ranges between $192,000 and $351,000 for a single unit with a typical franchise fee of $39,000. Three-unit, five-unit, and 10-unit franchises are offered at a discounted price.
