Support and Training
In recent years, poke has hit the mainland with explosive popularity and welcome applause. This traditional Hawaiian dish was once a quick snack for fisherman as they combined raw cubed fish with seaweed and salt for a quick satiation fix. Poke Bowl, a favored poke destination and successful restaurant business blooming across New York, has been one of the forerunners in poke cuisine as we offer an incredible menu, a laid-back atmosphere, and unsurpassed customer service. We have expertly designed a well-received restaurant concept that welcomes seasoned poke lovers and new poke adopters.
The nation is primed and ready for Poke Bowl. Health awareness, nutrition education, and the love for efficiency are all indicators that Poke Bowl is exactly what the public calls for. From our base locations in Manhattan, our successful business model has proven that the nation is ready for more poke within our fast casual atmosphere. Our company is expanding by offering this easy-to-operate franchise to interested and qualified candidates.
Besides the delicious food, the Poke Bowl experience directly differs from other restaurants due to its heavy focus on customer service. Positive reviews span our social media pages, providing fresh waves of new clientele and a steady stream of regulars. People love poke and Poke Bowl is the go-to poke destination in every location in which our roots are set. Our concept is designed to provide great food to customers in a fun, casual environment with minimal environmental impact.
Our menu is designed to cross-utilize products to keep our franchisees’ costs low. We carefully created each dish with cooking styles and ingredients in mind in order to keep our concept simple, while still delivering a taste experience no visitor will soon forget! Customers can build their own bowl to create a truly unique dish each visit.
Poke Bowl is one of a kind. The professional atmosphere and attractive ambiance, along with the innovative recipes, will ensure that there is nothing else like it in the franchise marketplace. We provide entrepreneurs looking for a food franchise the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of an exciting, new, easy-to-operate concept that sells an unparalleled poke experience. Customers are given a satiable, instagramable meal that is the envy of every onlooker. Our beloved mantra is “fresh food, creative design, and exciting flavor”. We believe our vision for what a fast-casual restaurant should be is what makes us different from most other places out there.
The Poke Bowl brand is beckoning entrepreneurial hopefuls who want a business with reasonable overhead, affordable start-up costs, impressive ROI, and sprawling market applicability.
