Why Nautical Bowls
Easy answer! Our brand is founded in Minnesota, the land of 10,000 lakes. We love our lakes and the activities and memories that come along with life at the lakes. Our store decor and our menu follow a Nautical theme because it allows us to bring our passion for the lakes into our branding. Lake life is fun, filled with laughter, outdoorsy, & adventurous- that is who we are!
A Note From Our Founders3>
We started Nautical Bowls because we wanted to have the freedom of time with our family and to make a meaningful impact on others at the same time. We also asked ourselves, “What can we create that would mean we never have to wear anything but athletic attire?” We value a healthy lifestyle, which means not only healthy fuel and tennis shoes, but importantly, healthy relationships.
Franchising Nautical Bowls was a no brainer, as it means we get the opportunity to award other individuals the same freedom of time we so highly value. We work really hard and we have a lot of fun bringing others along for the ride. As we franchise, we are meeting incredible people. Individuals who have a heart for making a difference, for providing the best for their families, for an active and well-rounded lifestyle, and for living life to the fullest. Our goal is 1,000 locations and if you’re interested in becoming the captain of your own career, and more importantly, your time, learn more below.
We hold our franchisees’ hands throughout the entire process and give them the tools needed to be successful. Our executive team has over 30 years of experience franchising brands. We have detailed systems and processes to support you along the entire way—whether that’s the grand opening event or years down the line. We provide marketing strategies and guidelines to help support each location throughout their launch and continued store growth as we continue to level up.
