Rush Bowls a Colorado-based fast-casual concept known for its fresh and healthy meals-in-a-bowl – will open its first Louisiana location on March 5th. The new restaurant is owned by New Orleans native and entrepreneur, Arthur Stawski Sr. 


“New Orleans will fall in love with the concept just like I did,” said Arthur Stawski Sr. “This city may be known for its seafood and fried food, but there is a growing community for health food that is eager to try something new like Rush Bowls.”


Arthur Stawski Sr.’s 38-year-long career in convenience and petroleum retailing began at age 19. He worked in marketing and operations before he moving to Colorado to help lead Kroger’s convenience store division. After nearly 20 years of running 300 Kroger convenience stores, the brand sold that division in 2018, leading Stawski Sr. to return to New Orleans and explore entrepreneurship. He then launched Ragin’ Cajun Food and Fuel, which owns a few Chevron Fuel convenience stores and Subway locations. Looking to expand his portfolio, Stawski Sr. discovered Rush Bowls on LinkedIn and was impressed by the concept. Knowing New Orleans would embrace these unique bowls, he got in touch with the Rush Bowls team to open his own location.
