The Louisville shop marks the second Playa Bowls location in Kentucky. Located at 12939 Shelbyville Road, the new shop will be offering free bowls and limited-edition T-shirts to the first 50 guests in line with additional swag and giveaways to guests throughout the day. 

The Louisville shop is owned and operated by franchise owners and husband and wife duo, Sarah Cook Thiess and Brett Thiess.

This latest opening marks the couple’s second Playa Bowls location, with another shop nearby in St. Matthews.  

Guests at Playa Bowls can pick from an extensive menu of delicious bowls or customize their own.

They can choose from a variety of proprietary blends made with superfoods, including pure acai, pitaya and brand-new mango, chia pudding, coconut, kale, banana, oatmeal, and more.

Guests can also add tasty and nutritious toppings, such as fresh cut fruits, seeds, nuts, granola, dried berries, and nut butters.

The superfruit bowl shop also offers a selection of juices, smoothies, cold brew, and other select drinks.

Playa Bowls can be made vegan or gluten-free, and it can be adapted to integrate into Whole30, Keto, and Paleo diets. 

Founded by surfers Abby Taylor & Rob Giuliani, Playa Bowls was born out of the desire to recreate deliciously healthy versions of the acai and pitaya bowls the pair encountered on various surf trips spanning from Costa Rica to Hawaii.

The duo discovered new and unique twists on this popular post-surf treat at each beach and came home wanting more.

Abby and Rob decided to set up a blender and a folding table on the boardwalk in their hometown of Belmar, and Playa Bowls was born.

After eight years, thousands of employees, and hundreds of thousands of bowls later, Playa Bowls continues to offer superfruit bowls with a mission to lead communities in healthy, sustainable living. 

Since its inception in 2014, Playa Bowls has emerged as a leader in the national superfruit bowl shop segment and specializes in bowls such as acai and pitaya, oatmeal, chia, smoothies, juices, cold brew and more.

The brand has 175+ shops systemwide, operating in 20 states, with plans to continue to expand the domestic footprint across the U.S. and globally.  

The new shop in Louisville will be open seven days a week from 8:00 AM – 9:00 PM.
