Nautical Bowls Franchise Opportunity
There’s a lack of true healthy food options on-the-go. We know it is difficult to find a quick meal without compromising your healthy lifestyle. At Nautical Bowls, we combine healthy, fresh superfood bowls and with an uplifting atmosphere to create incredible customer satisfaction.
Our bowls are all-natural, gluten-free, dairy-free, plant-based, and packed with essential vitamins and nutrients for your body to thrive!
It’s a complete meal that satisfies hunger while also making you feel great!
With the guidance of our experienced executive team, raving guest testimonials, low-cost startup plan, highly profitable business model, and exceptional marketing support, Nautical Bowls is an incredible ground floor opportunity!
While our competitors in our space require an initial investment for upwards of $450,000 to get in the game, you can get into Nautical Bowls for $50,000 down and an investment under $250,000.
When you take into consideration our commitment to delivering a great product and a top-notch guest experience, our lower initial investment, simple operation, and strong unit economics, this provides an easy path for our franchisees to be multi-unit owners.

SIMPLE & SCALABLE
Our build outs are not expensive, there is not excessive overhead, and our product is not complex to create. Since day one, we have been focused on creating the most efficient way of doing everything that surrounds our business and now have extremely simplified processes for every task.
With a small footprint of 600-1,200 square feet finding real estate is easier and faster, so our franchise partners can open their stores quickly!
We have fine-tuned the operations of running a healthy fast-casual concept and turned the industry profitability norms on its head (over double industry average profit margins). Staffing for our stores is generally 1 full time manager and 12-15 part-time employees.
Our build outs are affordable, in fact, the typical investment for a Nautical Bowls franchise is less than 250K (franchise fee included)! Since day one, we have been focused on creating the most efficient systems and processes to help you manage and expand your Nautical Bowls business.
AMAZING GUEST EXPERIENCE
Many brands claim to focus and care about the guest experience but how many have developed a training program solely around company culture and step-by-step guides to create incredible guest experiences and loyalty? At Nautical Bowls, we prioritize authentic and powerful community relationships.
Nautical Bowls has an extremely loyal following among its guests. We’ve found once someone tries one of our unique signature bowls, we’ve created a guest for life.
The Nautical Bowls experience tends to draw people who associate themselves with living an active and healthy lifestyle.
With so many of us living an on-the-go lifestyle, we found that our product appeals to everyone regardless of age or gender. Our guests are not only on the go, but they also want a healthy alternative to what most fast-food establishments are offering today.
IDEAL FRANCHISE PARTNER
The ideal Franchise Partner is passionate about health and wellness and making people feel awesome! They have the entrepreneurial spirit and love being involved in their community.
