The devastation of 9/11 prompted Andrew Pudalov to leave his finance career behind in New York City, move to Boulder, Colorado and launch a healthy bowl concept. That was almost 20 years ago and Rush Bowls has since grown from a single location at the University of Colorado to a 40-unit chain in 21 states.

Listen as the CEO shares how the menu is expanding to include more snacks, why healthy bowls continue to trend with consumers and how franchising is bringing Rush Bowls to underserved areas of the country.
