Koibito Poké will expand to Las Vegas

Arizona-based chain expands to Las Vegas, after announcing openings in Charlotte and St. Louis

Koibito Poké, known for its build-your-own Hawaiian poké bowls, will open a location in Las Vegas, Nevada. Spanning 1,200 square feet, the new Las Vegas Koibito Poké will offer indoor and outdoor seating and resemble the chain’s flagship locations in Arizona.

“As an alumnus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, I am excited to bring Koibito Poke to this city and expand throughout the southwest outside of Arizona,” says Todd Stottlemyre, co-founder and chief executive of Koibito Poké, former MLB pitcher and three-time World Series Champion and two-time bestselling author.

The newest franchise partners, Shelton and Manal Jourdan, were born and raised in Las Vegas. Jourdan is a firefighter, an engineer and paramedic for the local fire department, while Manal, a UNLV alumna, serves as a nurse practitioner.

The Las Vegas Koibito Poké will open at 4870 Blue Diamond Road, Suite 150 in August. The fast casual’s restaurants follow the “open visibility model,” which provides customers with an easy sightline to the menu and the ready-to-serve ingredients.

Koibito Poké had previously announced openings in North Carolina and Missouri. Debuting in July, the Charlotte store at 4740 Park Road was slated to be the first non-Arizona unit of the restaurant chain.


In St. Louis, two restaurants will open during the summer. These Des Peres and Warson Woods units will be unveiled by July. They will offer carryout, dine-in and delivery options.

The Des Peres Koibito Poké restaurant will open at 13275 Manchester Road, Suite 103. Meanwhile, the Warson Woods outlet will be located at 9959 Manchester Avenue.

Having four locations in Arizona, Koibito Poké launched its franchising program in earnest and has been actively recruiting franchisees. The fast casual tapped into immune-boosting, healthy-food messaging to differentiate itself.


On the menu, guests will find Signature Bowls, like the Chicken & Shrimp and Tuna Trio. Aside from Signature Bowls, guests can customize their personalized bowl orders from a selection of seafood proteins, toppings, such as seaweed salad and cucumber salad, and nine unique sauces.
