RUSH BOWLS HISTORY
Over the years, Rush Bowls has cultivated a loyal following and developed a successful business model by perfecting menu items, processes, vendor relationships and marketing practices. During that time, Andrew had received hundreds of inquiries about franchise opportunities, but he chose to stay focused on fine-tuning the Rush Bowls’ concept… until now.
In late 2015, Andrew partnered with prolific restaurateur, Buddy Brown, one the nation’s most successful franchise operators. Buddy started his career managing restaurants in the 80s before taking the plunge into the franchising world in the 90s. Buddy now owns and operates nearly 300 stores. His knowledge of how to build a successful franchise operation from the ground up, along with Andrew’s vision, concept, business acumen and entrepreneurial instinct, create the foundation that will guide future Rush Bowls franchisees toward success.
