Posted

From Staff Reports

Kona Poké, the Hawaiian-themed restaurant established in 2019, announced it's coming to Apopka by late 2021, a change from their first planned opening for summer 2020. The Central Florida based brand is comprised of Kona Poké brick and mortar stores in Lake Mary, Sanford, plus Kona Poké Express comprised of custom-built food trailers currently located in Indialantic Beach, with more locations on the horizon.

“We are very energized to finally get Apopka in the works and announce we are moving forward with the grand opening in sight,” says Owners Matthew Ting and Ernie Falco III. “We are happy to partner with Jesse Ting, who’s taken advantage of our fast track to ownership program, which we are very proud of.”

Located at 3030 East Semoran Boulevard in the Colonial Shoppes Plaza, the 1,500 square foot store will offer Kona Poké’s complete menu, indoor and outdoor patio seating, third-party delivery by Uber Eats and pick-up, plus feature a grab-and-go cooler with an assortment of refreshments, beverages, proteins and sides, like spicy tuna, seaweed salad, and various Poké items. In line with all Kona Poké concepts, the new Apopka restaurant will have Kona Poké’s 100% no-contact food prep guarantee.

Fun Fact: What is poké? Pronounced POH-keh, poké is cubed raw fish eaten either on its own or over a bowl of sushi rice. While it may seem like a new trend, the Hawaiian dish has been around for centuries.

Kona Poké opened its doors in January 2019. It features healthy and delicious Hawaiian-style poké bowls with fresh sushi-grade fish, house sauces, and over 40 fresh ingredients to choose from, plus vegan, vegetarian, keto, gluten-free, and cooked options. Customers can choose from a variety of award-winning Signature Poké Bowls and sauces, like the popular Kona Fire, Tidal Wave, and Bourbon Chicken, in addition to Build Your Own Bowls, soup, salads, and Mochi ice cream.
