LET’S TALK FRANCHISING

Simplifying Franchising, Aloha Poke Bowl

Aloha, and welcome to our premier poke franchise opportunity!

Aloha Poke is actively searching for new franchisees who are ready to take our innovative yet simple restaurant concept to new heights. We invite you to look around, discover what it means to be an Aloha Poke franchisee, and learn why it’s time to invest in Aloha Poke Co’s fresh food franchise business.

Why an Aloha Poke Franchise?

Health Oriented

Our mission is to help consumers rethink “fast food” while providing a healthier alternative to the usual sandwich, burger, burrito, or pizza options. Overall, 88% of consumers will pay more for healthy food, and Aloha Poke franchisees offer their customers fresh and fast poke bowls with real nutritional benefits. Each bowl is packed with fresh, super-foods our customers can always feel good about eating.

Sustainability

We take environmental stewardship seriously and offer a menu that is sourced sustainably and responsibly from fisheries and farms that are dedicated to leaving minimal environmental impact. Our Atlantic salmon is raised without antibiotics and sourced from Chilean aquacultures holding a 2019 Best Aquaculture Practice (BAP) processing plant certification and our long-line caught sashimi-grade Ahi tuna is traceable from fishing line to chopstick and was awarded “Best Choice” by Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch.

Simplicity

Simplicity is foundational to everything we do. Our order/pay first model and focused menu = less friction with customer touchpoints. We operate efficiently in smaller spaces and serve long lines of customers quickly, with fewer employees, a focused menu, no kitchen, or expensive equipment and our front and back of house admin functions run on cloud-based, digital tech platforms. We do all this and focus on sustainability and responsible sourcing practices dedicated to leaving a minimal environmental impact.

What We Don't Have

At Aloha Poke don’t have hoods, grills, fryers, ventilation, 20-ft service lines, or huge dining areas. What we do have is a flexible footprint: the average store is 1,278 sq ft. We offer a much lower opex and capex hurdle compared to other poke and fast casual concepts with a great cash on cash return opportunity! Our menu is simple to execute, flavorful, fresh, customizable, served fast, and travels well. We are future focused, digital, healthy, and convenient.

THE GROWTH OF YOUR
BUSINESS IS OUR #1 PRIORITY

The pandemic has had an effect on all restaurants; however, Aloha Poke is better positioned to overcome these obstacles. Aloha’s smaller average footprint is a competitive advantage keeping monthly occupancy cost at a minimum.

Multi-Unit Franchisee

To me, it was the simplicity of the process and the fresh ingredients. I looked at it and realized from what I had before, to what I see now, this was a no-brainer for me to operate. And even if you don’t have that background, you can get trained.
