Rush Bowls, a Colorado-based fast-casual concept known for its fresh and healthy meals-in-a-bowl, has opened its first Tacoma area location in Lakewood.
Located in Lakewood Pavilion at 5700 100th Street SW, Suite 330, the new store is owned and operated by Scott Mills, a more than 20-year veteran of the United States Air Force who is already committed to opening four additional Rush Bowls locations in the Tacoma area. Though exact addresses have yet to be announced for the other locations, Mills has his sights set on Tacoma and the surrounding areas in Pierce County.
“After seeing the passion Rush Bowls has for promoting a healthy lifestyle, I knew it was something I wanted to share with our community,” said Mills. “Rush Bowls thrives off of creating delicious, wholesome, all-natural food that makes you forget you’re eating something good for you. Tacoma is a very active city that is full of energy, and I’m excited to provide healthy meals to fuel our community.”
Founded in 2004 by a former Wall Street executive, Rush Bowls serves meals-on-the-go in the form of bowls made from blended fruit and vegetables, then topped with organic granola and honey, and other nutritious ingredients. It has 40 bowls on its menu, as well as smoothies made with fruit and vegetables, including acai, kale and avocado, to name a few.
“With up to five servings of fruits and vegetables and up to 40 grams of protein in each bowl, eating well on the go has never been easier,” said Mills.
Rush Bowls also offers incredible tasting options for people with various dietery restrictions such as vegetarian, vegan, wheat-free, gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free and nut-free.
“We’ve built a place that welcomes those that want something out of the ordinary. An option that makes our customers feel good about themselves, their decisions and their bodies, so they can go out and enjoy life one spoonful at a time,” said founder and CEO Andrew Pudalov. “Over the last 15 years, Rush Bowls has cultivated a fiercely loyal following aross the country and we look forward to providing health conscious consumers with a delicious new take on their favorite meal, whether that’s breakfast, lunch or dinner.”
The local expansion plans come at a time when Rush Bowls continues to rapidly expand its national footprint. Today, there are 24 restaurants open and operating in 14 states, with more than 120 additional locations in various stages of development across 20 states
