San Jose, CA. June 2018 – Poki Bowl is proud to announce the launch of its franchise operation. In the recent years, the Hawaiian food industry has been experiencing phenomenal growth as more and more new concepts make their way from the islands to the mainland. If you haven’t yet heard of poke (pronounced POH-keh), that’ll soon change as these fast casual Hawaiian restaurants take hold of the palettes of all Americans.
Established in 2015, Poki Bowl was born out of passion to introduce a customized “seafood in a bowl” experience in Northern California. With this passion, they opened their first location on Almaden Expressway, and within 2 years, they expanded to five locations around the Bay Area. With their new fast casual franchise offering, Poki Bowl is ready to expand their concept to newer regions and more communities.
Their concept only requires a prep area, with no kitchen area needed. This means easy, low cost and clean setup, easy permitting and no maintenance issues. Their menu includes a variety of fresh ingredients that allows each visitor to create their own unique twist of a Poki Bowl. The number of Hawaiian restaurants, which includes those that serve poke, has nearly doubled in the last two years, from 342 venues to 700. This August alone new poke concepts have opened in several cities, including Phoenix, Orange County, Las Vegas, Chicago, and New York City. If the growth rate continues, by 2020 there could be more than 1,000 Hawaiian restaurants on the mainland.
Poki Bowl’s franchise has partnered with Hossein Kasmai and his company, Franchise Creator, a Miami-based franchise consulting firm, to develop their franchise program. Hossein Kasmai is a well-known individual within the franchising community and has developed many fast casual dining experiences into successful franchise opportunities. “I believe we recognize the growing trend of a health-conscious population looking for new ideas that satisfies their appetite”, said Hossein Kasmai, CEO of Franchise Creator. “We anticipate Poki Bowl to continue to grow and rapidly spread, becoming one of the most looked-for franchising companies in the seafood industry.” Poki Bowl is comprised of a team with a proven track record and significant experience in the poke space. This experience continues to grow with the opening of each new location.
