This Saturday Playa Bowls will be opening a new 1,100 Square foot location in Rye at 18 Purdy Avenue. The store will celebrate its grand opening beginning at 11am with custom t-shirts and free acai and pitaya bowls for the first 50 customers.
This is Playa’s 107th location nationwide serving açaí, pitaya, coconut bowls and smoothies, and the 8th location in the New York State. It opens in partnership with local entrepreneurs Jarrod Jackette & Steve Dimoski.
Founded by surfers Abby Taylor & Rob Giuliani, Playa Bowls was born out of the desire to recreate the delicious, refreshing, healthy versions of acai and pitaya bowls the pair encountered on various surf trips to Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama, Puerto Rico, California, and Hawaii. At each beach, they discovered new and unique twists on this popular post-surf treat and came home wanting more.
The pair set up a blender and a folding table on the boardwalk in their hometown of Belmar, and Playa Bowls was born. Six years, thousands of employees, and hundreds of thousands of bowls later, Playa Bowls continues to offer super-fruit bowls with a mission to lead communities in healthy, sustainable living.
