The three incoming Rush Bowls stores will open at 11010 Cross Peak View, Ste. 130, Colorado Springs, Colorado 80921; 1580 Blake St., Denver, Colorado 80202; and 3354 Larimer St., Denver, Colorado 80205.
The RiNo District location (Larimer St.) will be owned and operated by franchisee Sheila Riley. Information about the store’s opening date and a full interview with Riley is forthcoming. While it’s currently unclear as to who owns the other two locations and when they will debut, franchisee input regarding both is also on its way.
Founder Andrew Pudalov launched Rush Bowls in 2004 in Boulder, Colorado, leaving behind the fast-paced, high-intensity lifestyle of the New York financial scene. His dream was to open a “healthy, fast-dining restaurant that filled people’s lives with honest ingredients and delicious recipes.”
Rush Bowls uses fresh fruit, nutritious toppings like granola and honey, and essential vitamins to whip together their creations. Customers can choose from a wide array of add-ons ranging from peanut butter to soy protein. What’s more, Rush Bowls even has a Bow Wow Bowl — a combination of banana, peanut butter, milk, froyo, and milk bone made specifically for hungry pups.
The article has been updated to include a What Now Denver interview with Franchisee Sheila Riley:
WND: Where and when will your Rush Bowls store debut?
SR: RiNo Art District — 3354 Larimer Street. I am hoping to be open by June 2023.
WND: Why did you choose Rush Bowls?
SR: I am a very health-conscious person and visited Rush Bowls after leaving the gym on several occasions. I couldn’t get enough of the delicious, healthy bowls and decided I wanted to be a part of the Rush team. The bowls are a perfect blend of all-natural fruits and veggies, and I love that they cater to any dietary need or preference without an upcharge.
WND: What can customers expect from your location specifically?
SR: A complete meal in a bowl. Good music, good vibes, and awesome customer service!
WND: Will you take on ownership of any other Rush Bowls locations?
SR: I would love to own a few more Rush Bowls, but for now I’m focused on this one.
WND: Prior to this opportunity, what was your experience in the food/hospitality industry?
SR: I have been a commercial business account manager for 20+ years and work with a lot of businesses getting their operations up and running. Some of this experience involves food/hospitality, but in a different aspect, so I’m excited to get on the other side of things!
