Playa Bowls Signs 14 Multi-Unit Commitments To Open Additional Franchise Shops

May 15, 2024 // // Belmar, NJ - Playa Bowls has announced the signing of 14 multi-unit franchise commitments during the first quarter of 2024. These commitments will introduce new shops in key markets, including Manhattan, Sarasota, Phoenix, and Miami among other regions. Playa Bowls also signed additional single unit franchises in the first quarter.

Brothers Hanish, Pratik and Alpesh Patel are among Playa Bowls’ new multi-unit franchise owners who signed a three-store commitment to introduce the brand to the Houston market. The brothers anticipate that their first shop will open before the close of 2024 in The Woodlands neighborhood in northern Houston. Their decision to partner with Playa Bowls stems from a shared passion for health and wellness. Both Hanish and Pratik have backgrounds in medicine where they’ve witnessed firsthand the rising rates of diabetes and heart disease across the U.S. The partners are eager to bring Playa Bowls to the city to provide the community with healthier meal options.

“Playa Bowls is a brand I’ve been keeping my eye on since 2020. My first experience trying Playa Bowls was in San Antonio, where I fell in love with their healthy, clean products,” said Hanish Patel. “When you step into a Playa Bowls’ shop, there is an overall great vibe inside. Immediately I wanted to have this brand and its products closer to Houston.”

Signing a seven-store commitment, Ben Bennett is also a new Playa Bowls franchise owner with intent to expand the brand throughout Pittsburgh and Cleveland, as well as open a shop at West Virginia University in Morgantown. Bennett’s admiration for Playa Bowls began after his children introduced him to the inviting atmosphere and diverse selection of refreshing, superfruit menu offerings, leading him to sign a commitment this past March. With experience as a small business and franchise owner, Bennett is eager to contribute to the growth of Playa Bowls.

“We’re pleased to welcome more Playa Bowls franchisees into our system to assist in the nationwide development of our brand,” said Jayson Tipp, Chief Development Officer at Playa Bowls.
