Bowls Story


The idea for Bowls sparked in 2014, when the Bowls To Go owner, Andy, visited Portland, OR for business. During his time there he discovered a small stand that sold açaí bowls — and immediately fell in love with them: the look, taste, and the rush of energy after. His experience starkly contrasted the heavy, tired, and unfocused energy he felt after eating out, anywhere else. 

Andy knew he would need to have these bowls back home, in Milwaukee. 

As the idea grew, he didn’t stop at açaí bowls. The concept expanded into a restaurant that served every meal in a bowl — smoothies, grains, greens, and more. Every meal had to be convenient, quick, delicious, AND nutritious. 

It was a complete 180 from the low quality, unhealthy food that made pursuing the rest of the day difficult for Andy. 

Bowls To Go opened in 2017, as Bowls Restaurant. One of its first employees, Kelly, has been an integral part of the Bowls evolution from a fast-casual restaurant to a prepared meal service company. She has spearheaded the continual improvement in the quality of Bowls’ ingredients, including the removal of unhealthy oils, unnatural sweeteners, and choosing to integrate grass-fed steak, wild caught salmon and tuna, Amish chicken, local pasture-raised eggs, and locally harvested honey. 

We are excited to bring even more convenience to our Milwaukee-area customers through the provision of fresh and frozen individual and family size meals to be easily reheated and eaten at home. Given the current uncertainty and stay at home orders, we are happy to offer this delicious, nutritious food for pickup or delivery, and look forward to providing catering again as things open up.
