Founded in 2015, Pokeworks was created by founders who shared a vision...

Many trips to Hawaii filled with lots of poke served as the inspiration of bringing the crisp, fresh, healthy island favorite to the Mainland.

Pokeworks Burrito

Pokeworks is a groundbreaking, healthy Hawaiian-inspired fast casual brand.

From the beginning, Pokeworks was a consumer sensation. Hundreds stood in line to build their own poke burrito or bowl. “The ‘Sushi Burrito’ has hit NYC and it's amazing”, a video describing our craveable poke burrito, went viral with more than 50 million views. Today, Pokeworks is the leading and fastest-growing fast casual poke brand in the world.

At Pokeworks, we believe in living a healthy lifestyle and eating food made from the freshest, highest quality ingredients.

Our chef-driven menu brings the authentic flavors of Hawaii to every Pokeworks location. Our hand-crafted Signature Works and FOMO-worthy bowls and burritos offer unique flavors found only at Pokeworks. Let our sumptuous seafood, hand-cut vegetables and proprietary sauces be the inspiration when you build Poke Your Way™.
