Founders, Bryant & Rachel Amundson

Entrepreneurs and husband-and-wife-duo Rachel and Bryant Amundson founded Nautical Bowls in 2018. They were excited to offer the people of Minnesota a quick and healthy meal that was so lacking in Minnesota. Over the next few years and a couple of stores later they approach Peter Taunton, a Forbes business consultant and franchise expert to look at their business. It was after a few short meetings the partnership was formed to evolve the Nautical Bowls acai bowl concept into a national franchise brand. In just 18 short months they’ve grown the franchise concept to over 160 locations and growing.

Rachel and Bryant love their three little kids (want 4 more), their two golden retrievers, and spending quality time with friends and family. They are extremely passionate about people and the impact they can have on their communities through the culture they have created in their business. They love to bring energy, fun, and laughter into the room. They are passionate about health and wellness and living life to the fullest. Their mission is to glorify God in all they do and try their best to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our world. Nautical Bowls has been an incredible outlet for making a greater impact in the lives of many individuals. They are incredibly driven to make Nautical Bowls the go- to, uplifting and energizing spot in every community we open in! When they are not working hard on growing Nautical Bowls you can find them outside on a run, a walk, playing with their kids, boating, enjoying outdoor live music…really any activity outdoors.
