Health-forward Playa Bowls focuses on acai, pitaya and coconut bowls as well as smoothies. The 85-unit fast-casual chain has still seen interest from franchisees amid the pandemic and has more than a dozen stores in the queue to open. The company added make-your-own-bowl packs. Most of the stores have patios, so Playa Bowls is playing up those outside areas during the coronavirus crisis.
