LIVINGSTON — Hurry, don’t walk!
Rush Bowls is coming to New Jersey!
The first Garden State location is set to open in Livingston this year.
“Expanding into the state of New Jersey is a much-anticipated milestone of growth that we’ve been looking forward to,” says Andrew Pudalov, founder and CEO of Rush Bowls.
“It’s amazing to watch the concept reach more and more people as we aim to share our dedication to health and wellness and grow our relationships in new and existing communities throughout the country,” he added.
Rush Bowls is set to open at 213 Town Center Way in Livingston in the second quarter of 2023 (sometime between April and June), according to Nicole McCray, senior vice president, and chief marketing officer of Rush Bowls.
“We hope New Jersey and Livingston especially, is as eager as we are to have Rush Bowls become a part of the community,” McCray said.
What are Rush Bowls?
Rush Bowls are a blend of all-natural fruits and veggies topped with organic granola, a drizzle of honey, and your choice of fresh fruits and toppers. They are packed with nutrients and fully customizable for those constantly on the run but looking for healthy alternatives.
These complete meals are loaded with up to five servings of fruits and veggies in every bowl.
When did Rush Bowls start?
Rush Bowls originated in 2004, when Pudalov decided to leave the New York financial scene to pursue his dream of creating a healthy, fast-dining restaurant that filled people’s lives with honest ingredients and delicious recipes, according to its website.
As a result, Rush Bowls was born in Boulder, Colorado offering bowls filled with fruits, granola, and honey, and blended with protein and vitamins.
