Rush Bowls Brings Healthy Meals On-the-Go to Berkeley
August 20, 2018 // Franchising.com // BOULDER, Colo. – Rush Bowls is officially coming to Berkeley. The Colorado-based franchise – a fast-casual restaurant chain known for its meals-in-a-bowl crafted from the finest fruits and vegetables, topped with granola and honey, and blended with protein, vitamins and other nutritious ingredients –is opening in Berkeley, Cali. on August 20.
Located at 1935 Addison St., the restaurant is owned and operated by local entrepreneur Kenny Noori. Originally from Afghanistan, Noori moved to the U.S. in 2009, where he spent several years operating a car dealership before deciding to team up with Rush Bowls.
“I am thrilled to introduce the Rush Bowls brand to the thriving Berkeley community,” said Noori. “Rush Bowls is not just a restaurant, it’s a lifestyle. This will be a great opportunity for us to connect and build relationships with others in the area who are passionate about great tasting, healthy food!”
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.
Over the past 14 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 any and all dietary needs.
“Rush Bowls is ecstatic for Kenny to bring the brand to the Berkeley community. We are excited for our first of many openings in California,” said Rush Bowls’ founder and CEO, Andrew Pudalov. “We are incredibly pleased with the following we have garnered in Colorado, Tennessee, Missouri and Texas, and are excited to see the same acclaim and recognition as we continue expanding throughout California and nationally.”
Pudalov added that the brand has over 70 Rush Bowls restaurants currently in various stages of development across 14 states – at least 10 of which will be located in California— with a variety of deals in the pipeline in major markets throughout the United States. Company plans call for having over 20 locations open by the end of 2018.
