[NEW & NEXT] New Bowl Concept Bolay Could Be Headed to Georgia

A heath-oriented bowl concept currently exclusively in Florida could be headed to Georgia.  Bolay, which launched in South Florida in 2016, currently has ten locations open with more in the pipeline.  The growing restaurant chain was founded by Chris Gannon, who owns the concept with his father Tim Gannon, a co-founder of Outback Steakhouse.
The first Bolay opened in early 2016 in Royal Palm Beach and while early social media posts seemed to indicate expansion to Atlanta was on the immediate horizon, openings in Atlanta, while still planned, are likely "a year or two out at this point," according to a company representative. 

The restaurant is focused on "clean" ingredients and offers a selection of grains, vegetables and meats for customizable bowls or "bols" as the company calls them. Similar in some ways to concepts like Flower Child and Gusto, Bolay features nutrient rich ingredients like Peruvian quinoa, roasted butternut squash, smoky cauliflower and a variety of lean, flavorful meats in its bols. Every bol meal is gluten-free.  

Bolay also features a variety of juices, teas, kombucha, cold brew, craft beers and natural sodas from Stubborn Soda.  

All locations of the quick serve restaurant are corporately owned, with any planned expansion slated to also follow a corporate-owned, rather than franchised, model.  Based on existing Florida area locations, most Bolay restaurants are about 2,500 square feet.    

Have you ever been to Bolay?  What is your favorite quick-serve healthy eatery?  Where would you like to see Bolay open in metro Atlanta?

Please just type "bowl," not "bol." Your parroting of corporate-speak and willingness to repeat whatever crap brands are trying to make happen is really cringe-worthy and sycophantic.

We could use some bowls/quick serve healthy in Perimeter for lunch. A lot of the offerings around here are pretty unhealthy. Favorite quick serve healthy options are The Local Woodfire Grill and Bezoria, both in Alpharetta. Also Souper Jenny, but not the overpriced Farm to Ladle.
