DETROIT – Olympia Development of Michigan joined Metro Detroit-based BLUSH Enterprises, Inc. today to announce plans to open the first Michigan location of the Rush Bowls healthy, fast-casual restaurant concept along the Columbia Street shopping and retail destination in The District Detroit. The eatery will feature meals-in-a-bowl crafted from the finest fruits and vegetables, blended with protein, vitamins and other nutritious ingredients, and topped with organic crunchy granola and honey.     

The Detroit location is one of five Rush Bowl locations that will open in Michigan under the leadership of franchisee, entrepreneur and BLUSH Enterprises, Inc. founder and president, Beth Lehman. Lehman’s focus has been to reach high-foot traffic areas that serve professionals and proximity to college and university campuses — and The District Detroit offers the perfect mix.     

Lehman said she chose Detroit to launch her first Rush Bowls franchise to join in on the energy of the city’s resurgence.    

“Detroit’s revitalization is a perfect fit for this brand and I’m so excited to be part of that energy,” Lehman said. “There’s a desire for healthy living and healthy food options, which makes The District Detroit the perfect market to launch Rush Bowls.”    

Lehman, a Seattle native and a new transplant who previously worked in the pharmaceutical corporate landscape, launched BLUSH Enterprises, Inc. in the metropolitan Detroit area in 2018. She visited several neighborhoods and destinations throughout the city and ultimately selected The District Detroit for her new venture.  Lehman cited the density of working professionals and the visitors that frequent the urban destination’s world-class sports and entertainments attractions along and near Woodward Avenue, including the iconic Fox Theatre.
