The new, massively popular poke concept in Scottsdale engaged PMA for their assistance with advertising, public relations, social media and website design.

 Phoenix, AZ—Scottsdale’s hottest new seafood concept, Ahipoki Bowl, sought out the help of one of Phoenix Business Journal’s Top Marketing firms, Phoenix Marketing Associates, for their grand opening launch. The firm was able to assist Ahipoki Bowl in promoting what would become a tremendously successful grand opening celebration, smashing all sales predictions for the day.

The restaurant’s one-day event took place on April 23rd and featured 50% off poke bowls all day. With over 1,300 bowls sold, the event even broke records from its highly anticipated opening day on April 1st as well as the grand opening record for the Temple City, California location.

After PMA’s assistance with the success of Ahipoki Bowl’s first location in Temple City, the Ahipoki Bowl restaurant group decided to again employ the help of the firm. PMA was able to lead a successful PR campaign which included TV segments on 3TV and ABC 15’s Smart Shopper; and even inspired several social media and radio mentions by Kiss FM’s Johnjay VanEs.

Other notable mentions include See It Try It Love It food bloggers Crystal & Hayley, Arizona Foodie and IFBB Pro Dusty Hanshaw. Phoenix Marketing Associates also assisted with advertising, social media management and website design and management for the restaurant.

Recognizing the latest boom in health-consciousness and the rapidly growing poke trend, the Ahipoki Bowl restaurant group decided to contribute their twist on the Hawaiian concept. Poke, a sushi-like concept served in a bowl, has been an immensely popular concept in California for some time, but the trend hadn’t quite reached Arizona until now.

“We’ve got an amazing partnership between the Ahipoki Bowl brand and PMA and we look forward to helping this chain of restaurants grow throughout the country. ” said Jason Jantzen, Phoenix Marketing Associates President and Ahipoki Bowl managing partner.
