We have a great show today. We are meeting with Andrew Pudalov, Founder and CEO of Rush Bowls. Rush Bowls was launched in 2004, when founder, Andrew Pudalov, decided to leave the hustle and bustle of New York's financial scene to pursue his dream of creating a healthy, fast-dining restaurant that fueled people's lives with honest ingredients and delicious recipes. As a result, Rush Bowls was born in Boulder, Colorado, offering meals crafted from the finest fruit, topped with granola & honey, and blended with protein, vitamins and other nutritious ingredients that taste delicious while promoting a healthy lifestyle. Over the past decade, Rush Bowls has cultivated a loyal following and developed a successful business model by perfecting menu items, processes, vendor relationships and marketing practices. During that time, Andrew had received hundreds of inquiries about franchise opportunities, but he chose to stay focused on fine-tuning the Rush Bowls' concept… until now. In part two we will play a clip from our Great Quotes in Franchising podcast.
