THE DEMAND BEHIND THE SUCCESS
As consumer demand for acai bowls continues to surge, Rush Bowls is providing the supply by partnering with health-conscious entrepreneurs in markets across the country. Since 2004, Rush Bowls has been offering healthy and delicious bowls from all natural ingredients featuring fresh fruit topped with granola and honey.
While consumers are excited about our bowls, entrepreneurs are excited about our proven business model, and the opportunity to be mentored by Rush Bowls co-founder, Buddy Brown. As a franchisee, Buddy grew from being a manager for a large franchise system to a partner and then branched out on his own. Today, he owns over 300 franchise locations with Carl’s Jr, Hardee’s Dunkin Donuts, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut. Buddy stands ready to help you achieve the same type of success.

Many restaurant concepts claim to offer operational support, but very few have the experience in operations that Buddy Brown has. He was recently named Franchisee of the Year and Real Estate Developer of the Year in 2016 by Carl Karshner Enterprises, the owner-operator of Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s. In 2015, CKE turned over 55 corporate stores to him because he has demonstrated the ability to run stores profitably where others have failed.
“When you combine the uniqueness of the product and the strength of the business model, with Buddy’s incredible track-record and support infrastructure, you have what we believe is the most powerful franchise opportunity out there today.”

WE CROSS TWO SEGMENTS
Rush Bowls is perfectly situated at the crossroads of two growing industries: the health foods industry and the fast casual dining industry. Rush Bowls’ loyal fan base is rapidly growing, as consumers in both markets search for that perfect meal on-the-go that will let them feel good about the food they fuel themselves with.
The popularity of chains that offer quick yet healthy meals is driven by millennials who grew up watching the Food Network and aging baby boomers who want to maintain their health.
“Younger consumers eat out a lot, and they don’t want to feel bad about their choices every day,” said Kelly Weikel, senior consumer research manager at Technomic, a food industry consulting firm. “Eating healthy is also appealing for boomers. When they eat out, they go for a little bit healthier because they are trying to preserve their vitality.”
We have spent years interacting with and happily serving the elusive demographic of 18 — 28 year-olds that consume more fast casual food than most. Simply put, we get them and they get us.
We’ve worked hard to create an innovative and welcoming space for people who seek to thrive… from their life experiences to their social circles to what they put in their bodies.
SIMPLE & SCALABLE
Our Franchise Owners don’t have expensive build-outs, high overhead or have to deal with the complexities of a typical restaurant business model. For the last decade we have been focused on perfecting a highly efficient business model. We enjoy the revenues and stability of the typical food franchise model, but without the headaches.
Our lower initial investment, simple operation and strong unit economics also allows our franchise owners the ability to more easily open more locations. In fact, we have already sold out territory in Denver and Nashville. We are looking for like-minded entrepreneurs who want to capitalize on this industry and help us becoming the dominant national brand in this space.
