Bowl (The Bowl)
MEET OUR FOUNDER
The Bowl is a female owned business started by FGCU alumni Kylee Brinkman right here in sunny SWFL. After moving back to Naples from Southern California, Kylee started crafting organic açaí bowls in her home kitchen. After breaking into the industry through farmers markets back in 2014, she decided to open her shared commissary kitchen doors to the public and try her hand as a mini brick and mortar. Her mission was to provide organic açaí bowls with good vibes only!
Within months, she had outgrown the space and secured her first storefront location off Pine Ridge Rd. in late 2015. After signing her lease and receiving the keys on a Friday, Kylee gave birth to her first child, Boden Otto aka Bodie (Barefoot Bodie Bowl), the following Monday! Naples immediately welcomed The Bowl’s healthy, organic bowls and smoothies along with the beachy atmosphere and quick service and Kylee welcomed the fast growth!
