Koibito Poke is adding seven locations across its existing four markets by the summer of 2023, bringing it to a total of 13 storefronts.
The southwest-based franchise will add two locations to its home market of Arizona, as well as St. Louis, Las Vegas and Charlotte, North Carolina. In addition to the restaurant’s traditional franchise model, it will also open a cloud kitchen concept to operate as a delivery and takeout location only, according to a company press release.
“After several years of working to perfect our menu and concept, we are excited to look forward to explosive growth throughout the country,” Todd Stottlemyre, co-founder and CEO of Koibito Poke, a former MLB pitcher and three-time World Series Champion and two-time bestselling author, said in the release. “We are receiving a lot of interest from prospective franchisees who are looking to participate in our success as we expand across the country throughout 2023.”
