The Poke Bros founders got the idea for the concept from a trip to California in 2015. From street carts to fine dining restaurants, Poke is a staple of the Hawaiian food scene that’s made it’s way to the mainland.
It was obvious to us from the start that Columbus foodies would go nuts for poke but we didn’t want it to be expensive and inaccessible to the larger market. The fast casual concept seemed to fit this “sushi in a bowl” cuisine really well so we designed an assembly line model to allow people to get the fish and toppings they wanted in each unique dish. It’s been really well received and we’re excited to be rapidly expanding across the Midwest and East Coast to offer fresh, authentic poke to everyone.
