Co-owners Vuong and Emi Nguyen opened a new Nautical Bowls location at 1301 Keller Parkway, Ste. 400, in Keller on March 4.

Nautical Bowls, a franchise-based business founded in Minnesota with 39 locations nationwide, offers bowls that are gluten-free, dairy-free, plant-based and soy-free; contain zero refined sugars; and are made with organic, all-natural ingredients, according to the company website.

“Our bowls are packed with essential vitamins and nutrients to fuel your life,” Vuong said. “We truly value a healthy and active lifestyle and wanted to offer something that people can enjoy without worrying what they put in their body. We found Nautical Bowls and fell in love with their core values. Their products fit perfectly with our vision.”

The bowls use various flavors of sorbet as the base, and customers can either select from a list of 10 signature bowls or make their own. Signature bowls include the Nauti Bowl, which contains acai, pitaya—another name for dragon fruit that comes from Nicaragua—granola, banana, cacao nibs and peanut butter; the Big Island Bowl, which comes with blue majik—a combination of pineapple, mango, and spirulina, which is a type of algae—acai, pitaya, mango, coconut, vanilla chia, granola, strawberries, goji berries and hemp seeds; and the Sail Bowl, which contains acai, pitaya, peanut butter cacao chia, banana, strawberries, cacao nibs and coconut butter crumbles.

Customers wanting to make their own bowls can select from six different bases, including mango, pitaya and coconut, as well as eight different toppings, including almonds, coconut flakes and pumpkin seeds.

The Nguyens are excited about working with fellow Keller business owners and serving the community.

“We will be partnering with local business owners and have popup events. We will post everything through Facebook and Instagram,” Vuong said.
