We just love poke bowls!
Founded in 2018, Koibito Poke is run by former Arizona Diamondback Pitcher Todd Stottlemyre who helped lead the brand’s expansion throughout Arizona. The company aims to set itself apart from others by serving healthy food that has great advantages to building the body’s immune system — and by a commitment not to follow the standard but to become it.
Influenced by traditional Hawaiian and Japanese flavors and ingredients, Koibito Poke (Koibito meaning “love” or “the feeling between new lovers” in Japanese) encourages its guests to love their bodies — and show their bodies some love — by providing them with fresh, clean whole foods that are good for them and taste good too.
At Koibito Poke each guest is treated to an individualized “build-a-bowl” experience. With so many fresh ingredients to choose from, each bowl can be vastly different from the next. The large selection of bases, proteins, toppings, housemade sauces and more — all of which are the freshest and highest quality possible — gives diners the opportunity to craft their bowl towards a specific health goal. Whether trying to eat more greens or seafood, eliminate red meat, go low-carb, or try a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, guests can accomplish these goals easily (and deliciously) at Koibito Poke.
In addition to providing a variety of fresh ingredients to help diners enjoy healthy eating habits that are sustainable for everyday life, Koibito Poke extends the “love” of their brand to the community. The company recently created Koibito Poke, a 501 c3 that gives back to their neighbors in need.
Koibito Poke has five locations in Arizona, and is expanding its concept with franchises throughout the West Coast including California, Las Vegas, Colorado, and Washington, and eventually into the Midwest and beyond including Illinois, Missouri, Ohio, Texas, Florida, Louisiana, and Arkansas.
