Pokéworks store front

Founded in late December of 2015 in a tiny grab-n-go and delivery location in Midtown Manhattan, Pokéworks® has quickly established itself as the nation’s largest and fastest growing poke franchise, the pioneers of the poke burrito and a leader in innovation within the restaurant franchise industry with a focus on fresh, quality, delicious food.

From the beginning, Pokéworks attracted huge consumer and industry attention when hundreds stood in line willing to wait 45 minutes or more to build their own poke burrito or bowl. While countless New Yorkers were enjoying poke per day, one outlet created a short video “The ‘Sushi Burrito’ has hit NYC and it’s amazing.” That video went viral and has received more than 52 million views.

Today, Pokéworks continues to gain recognition from reputable restaurant media. The brand recently earned sport as the #1 poke franchise on the 2022 Entrepreneur® Franchise 500® list, Fast Casual Movers and Shakers list for the fourth consecutive year, and top-five ranking in Restaurant Business’s 2021 Future 50 list. Additionally, Pokéworks appears on the QSR 2021 Future 50 ranking

“Driven by increasing consumer demand, the poke category is one of the hottest fast casual segments. Leading the way is Pokeworks with surging AUVs and double digit year over year same store sales increases. Over the past 12 months, Pokeworks has assembled a world class leadership team, a cutting edge tech stack, game changing menu add-ons, and continues to build a best in class franchise support infrastructure. Pokeworks is well positioned to scale and the 70 unit premium poke brand is ready to erupt.” Says Chief Development Officer, Larry Sidoti
