Nautical Bowls opens in Royal Oak

The Nautical Bowls chain boasts 77 locations and was founded in Minnesota, also known as the land of 10,000 lakes, a nod to its nautical name. Bloomfield Hills native Dan Fisch fell in love with the acai bowls offered at Nautical Bowls while living in Minnesota. “I traveled a lot with my job and tried everyone’s acai bowls, but always came back to Nautical Bowls.” Now Dan and his wife Katie have brought the first Michigan Nautical Bowl concept to Royal Oak. So, what is an acai bowl? Pronounced ah-sigh-EE, the bowls feature the tasty acai berry, which has been heralded for an array of health benefits. You will find such bowls offered at a number of juice and heath food eateries but Dan Fisch explains that the Nautical Bowls brand is quite different than most. “While other places may use corn syrup, our bowls have no sugar added and are completely organic. It’s a nutritious meal replacement,” he said. The menu includes 10 signature bowls, such as the Anchor Bowl which features açaí topped with granola, banana, coconut flakes and cashew cacao butte. Customers can also choose to create their own custom bowl. In addition to the Royal Oak location, the Fischs have also bought franchise rights in Ann Arbor and Novi. 30955 Woodward Avenue, Suite 425, Royal Oak
