Since launching their first FISHBOWL in 2016 as uni students, the three young founders - Nathan Dalah, Nic Pestalozzi and Casper Ettelson have struck a chord with audiences, having self-funded their growth from 1-30 locations in the past six years - making it Australia's fastest growing QSR (quick service restaurant).
FISHBOWL grows, where possible, all of their produce on their own farms to ensure only natural ingredients are used, and every store - including Brisbane – has an open kitchen offering a transparent view of the process. Waste from their prep kitchens is also sent back to these farms to use as nutrient-rich compost to assist with the growth of new produce to solidify their sustainability efforts.
FISHBOWL is not just a venue, it's a culture that helps build community engagement and healthier lifestyle choices. The group has established run clubs with Nike and F45 trainers, facilitated local breath-work workshops, created their own surf team, and regularly gives back through limited-edition charitable bowls. Past beneficiaries include the Gotcha 4Life Foundation, Take 3 for the Sea, FEED THE FRONT LINE, and most recently, The Melanoma Institute through a collaboration bowl with surfer and DJ, Alex Hayes.
FISHBOWL Gasworks is set to open on Saturday, 16th July.
