The local owners of the Louisville store are Sarah Cook and Brett Thiess. A spokesperson for the Chamber of St. Matthews says they are already working to open a second location in Middletown and a third location is in the works.
According to Playa Bowls' website, they have over 150 stores and their mission is to "lead communities in healthy, sustainable living."
The Playa Bowl concept was created by its founders, Robert Giuliani & Abby Taylor. The news release states they visited Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Puerto Rico, California and Hawaii while on surf trips and were inspired. They say almost most every town offered a version of an acai or pitaya bowl. The release says the two decided to recreate their favorite recipes at home in New Jersey, with their own take on it.
