Koibito Poké is opening next week in Charlotte, North Carolina, and will add four stores in 2024.
“Our Charlotte location is exciting and important for the growth of Koibito Poké,” Co-Founder and CEO Todd Stottlemyre said in a press release. “It will serve as the training location for our future East Coast stores. The Charlotte team brings an unparalleled level of experience to the brand, and we are thrilled to be introducing our award-winning concept to new markets across the country.”
The chain is also in pre-launch with its Ambassador Program, giving social media users incentives to promote the growing brand. Chosen ambassadors receive a free bowl every month, Koibito Poké merch and discount codes for friends, family and followers. Also, ambassadors are rewarded for sales they bring to the store.
