Rush Bowls is at the intersection of convenience, trends and multiple booming industries. Stir in an entrepreneur-friendly approach to starting a franchise, and you’re already on the right foot to success. Here’s a more detailed look at the factors that make Rush Bowls a smart investment as part of the acai industry.
The acai berry industry is a $500 million industry. The South African berry is a naturally sweet, Instagram-friendly superfruit packed with health benefits. This photogenic fruit is catching on. Acai berry sales have more than doubled in the last two decades, putting Rush Bowls franchise owners in place for high acai bowl profit margins.
Now let’s look at the other industries that also come into play. The fast-casual industry is another $52 billion a year. Customers love the flexibility of coming in, ordering and then deciding to leave or stay for their meal. Our model also lets you decide if you want your franchise locations to be dine-in or simply to-go counters.
Juice and smoothie bars are thriving, with another $2 billion annually connected to those industries. The numbers make it clear — customers are turning to healthy food in friendly models with a taste that doesn’t compromise nutrition. Rush Bowls provides the opportunity to become part of the $1 trillion healthfood industry.

"Like a smoothie, but also like granola and yogurt a Rush Bowl is the perfect combination of blended fruit, granola and honey. It is a delicious treat that I get absurd cravings for at random times. My favorite is the lemon squeeze bowl."
