Boca Raton, FL. November 2017 – The Poké Company is proud to announce the launch of its franchise operation. In the recent years the Hawaiian raw-food industry has been experiencing phenomenal growth with new concepts for the mix of cubed seafood. If you haven’t yet heard of poké (pronounced POH-kay), that’s bound to change soon.

The Poké Company opened its first location in Boca Raton, Florida in 2016. Our concept requires no kitchen and only a prep area is all you need. This means easy, low cost and clean setup, easy permitting and no maintenance issues. Our goal is to cut through the noise surrounding poké and offer good, fresh and healthy food to our community. We want more people to join us in our endeavor and to do this we are now offering franchise opportunities. The number of Hawaiian restaurants, which includes those that serve poke, has nearly doubled in the last two years, from 342 venues to 700 as of August 2016. 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 in the country.

The Poké Company’s franchise program was developed by Franchise Creator, a Miami-based franchise consulting firm, led by Hossein Kasmai, a well-recognized name in the franchise industry.  The Poké Company began their expansion into the US in 2015.  “I believe we recognize the upward trend in health-conscious vegetables and high protein based concepts.”, said Maximo Cortese, the CEO of The Poké Company. “We anticipate The Poké Company to rapidly become one of the most looked-for franchise programs in the seafood industry”, said Hossein Kasmai.

About The Poké Company

Poké (pronounced poh-KAY) is a mix of raw cubed seafood in a soy-based marinade coupled with vegetables such as seaweed, avocado, edamame, and cucumber served over a bed of grains or greens. It’s simple, healthy and no-nonsense food.  And here at The Poké Company, that’s who we are and what we serve. Clients get to select their choice of rice (white or brown) or kale as base, a variety of fresh seafood (or tofu) as protein, a variety of vegetables, dressings and toppings in order to create their desired poké bowl.  The poké Company is also known for their variety of incredibly popular bubble teas.  All of our food is freshly made daily.  We use only top-quality fish that is responsible sourced- never frozen.
