Ahipoki Bowl opened its newest location in Scottsdale following the success of its Temple City, CA location reaffirming the restaurant group’s plans for multi-unit growth in 2016.
SCOTTSDALE, AZ – (May 1, 2016) After the tremendous success of their Temple City, CA location’s opening, the Ahipoki Bowl restaurant group opened its first location in Arizona on the 1st of April, with their grand opening event last week serving over 1,300 bowls in one day.
Recognizing the boom in health-consciousness among foodies everywhere, the restaurant adopted the Hawaiian-based poke concept that has been sweeping California for some time now. Through a large public relations push, a huge social media following and massive viral word-of-mouth, the restaurant was able to completely shatter projected sales for the one-day promotion.
Ahipoki Bowl features fresh rice or salad bases, with line cut ahi tuna, diced salmon, albacore, spicy tuna, octopus, scallops, yellowtail and shrimp as the protein starters of their bowl. Guests then choose from several toppings like fresh cucumber, masago, ginger, roasted seaweed, green onions, jicama, daikon sprouts and more, all garnished with homemade sauces.
“Our goal with the Scottsdale location was to simply prove the concept and I’d say it’s safe to say that poke is alive and well in the desert,” explained Jason Jantzen, Managing Partner of Ahipoki Bowl Arizona. “From day one we’ve seen lines out the door with 10% increases in sales daily which culminated with a massive one-day grand opening event.”
While the Scottsdale location s is the first Ahipoki Bowl in Arizona, additional locations are on the horizon not only for AZ, but southern and northern California. More information can be found at www.ahipokibowl.com
About Ahipoki Bowl:
The Ahipoki Bowl concept was born out of the desire of a restaurant group who wanted to bring a much needed health-conscious California seafood restaurant with a Hawaiian flair to its customers. Health conscious fish lovers can sit down and relax in a laid back atmosphere all while enjoying the fusion of California and Hawaiian flavors with a fresh fish experience normally found outside of a quick serve restaurant.
