Rush Bowls Franchise Overview

Rush Bowls Story

Every successful business starts with a bold and innovative idea – and Rush Bowls is certainly no exception. It all started with an idea from Andrew Pudalov. The New York City-based banker had found a lot of success in his career, but really wanted to pursue his passion as an entrepreneur in the growing healthy foods industry. In the fall of 2004, that idea became a reality when Pudalov and his family relocated to Boulder, Colorado to launch Rush Bowls and never looked back. What started as just a dream has grown into one of the fastest-growing and most successful franchises in the booming healthy foods industry. By focusing on crafting delicious bowls that seamlessly blend fruits, proteins, and other high-quality, wholesome ingredients with fast-friendly service, Rush Bowls has made its delicious foods for busy people on the go and quality customer service the cornerstones of its long-running success. Today, the brand continues to grow quickly and attract new fans wherever it opens.

Franchise Success Stories

Rush Bowls earned critical acclaim for its healthy, delicious food options, but didn’t start franchising until 2015. Since then, however, the brand has grown dramatically while containing the quality its been known for since 2004. In 2015, veteran franchise operator Dewey R. “Buddy” Brown partnered with Pudalov to help grow the brand and expand into the fast-growing healthy foods industry. Brown, who won many accolades over the course of his career in the franchising industry like the Founder’s Trophy for Franchisee of the Year in 2002 and 2008, recognized the shift towards healthy eating and living in the United States and knew that Rush Bowls was at the forefront of the trend. Brown convinced Pudalov that franchising could help take Rush Bowls to the next level – and the rest is history! Rush Bowls had nine franchise locations in operation for the 2018 fiscal year, but that number soon exploded thanks to Brown and Pudalov’s successful partnership. 12 new development agreements were signed in 2018, with inquiries for another 47 others. Today, the company has more than 100 franchise locations at various stages in development, reflecting its fast-growing popularity and being a testament to the power of franchising.
