By online November 16, 2018 Franchise 101

Poké Me is taking its healthy bowls - packed with fresh ingredients and a variety of toppings, to a brand new location - Geelong!

Since opening their South Yarra store in 2016, the founders have redefined the traditional Hawaiian style Poke Bowl, infused with Japanese flavours and ingredients, and now offer a healthy alternative for those on the go. This healthy fast-food alternative has seen a steady rise in sales over the past year, including a boost in home-delivery orders. It’s become a go-to lunch spot for busy socialites and business goers.


With stores already established in South Yarra, Hawthorn and Adelaide, the “Fresh Movement” is set to be an absolute hit in Geelong. The Geelong site located on the popular Little Malop street is set to open in early December, just in time for the summer trade and holiday makers visiting the Great Ocean Road down the road.


Geelong locals are beyond ecstatic about the news. The town is home to creative hubs, urban precincts and fabulous eateries. The second largest city in Victoria has become a popular alternative to Melbourne with its commercial-centric friendly environment.


Co-founder, Toby Yap is happy to have granted their first franchisee and looks forward to future success for the brand. “We have been working with DC Strategy for the past year to find franchisees and help to grow our business across Australia. Next, we’ll look to target New South Wales and hope to have another Melbourne coastal location open in early 2019. It’s been quite a journey and we’re glad to be working with the best in the industry” - Toby Yap


“We’re really excited to announce that our client, Poké Me has granted a new franchise in Geelong, Victoria. We can’t wait to see how the new store takes off and we’re currently in talks with candidates for other great locations. We love the brand and are delighted that we get to share this amazing business opportunity with people looking to own a hospitality business that’s built on simplicity and success!” - James Young
