Poke is poking up everywhere these days! In fact, it seems to be taking the foodie world by sushi storm.

And Pokéology is taking that craze to the next level. Pokéology is a restaurant group specializing in poke bowls, and they’re bringing their poke expertise to Houston. Poke bowls, or “sushi-in-a-bowl” combines fresh, slicked up fish and seafood with other ingredients, such as rice, seaweed salad, and avocado, in a bowl for healthy, convenient, and delicious meal options. Pokéology is the only poke concept in Houston owned and led by an acclaimed sushi chef, Jason Liao. The group has already hosted multiple successful pop-ups, opened their first location in Rice Village, and are now aiming aiming to open a second village in Sawyer Yards.

The Houston Press recently announced that poke is the city’s new obsession, and Pokéology is leading the poke pack. Their seafood is sashimi-grade and sourced daily. Other companies freeze and dye their tuna for that desired red color, but not Pokéology! And their commitment to freshness is working. Their pop-ups consistently exceed several hundred customers, and their Rice Village location profited just three months after opening, averaging 150-200 bowls daily. They believe that opening second location in Sawyer Yards will lead to another poke hit. The new location will increase their visibility and feature a full kitchen, which will allow the group to expand their menu with options like wok-smoked edamame, sushi donuts, and sushi burritos.

The Sawyer Yards location offers parking, steady traffic from the existing businesses, and a crowd interested in healthy and innovative trends. Plus, Sawyer Yards is next to the Heights, one of Houston’s most walkable districts and fast-appreciating residential area of single-family homes. The main residents in the Heights align perfectly with Pokéology’s clientele - they are 25-54 years in age, with a median household income of $82,000.

The convenience, healthiness, and deliciousness poke bowls offer is undeniable. Who doesn’t want some easy-to-eat-sushi-to-go? And with Pokéology’s fresh seafood, their acclaimed sushi chef, and their new location, Pokéology is poised to keep leading the poke pack and finding sushi success.

“Who Should Be Interested in this Offer:”
Are you part of the poke bowl obsession? Do you love healthy and convenient meal options? Or, are you interested in owning an innovative new restaurant? If you said yes to any of these -- especially if you live in Houston and near Sawyer Yards -- Pokéology might just be the investment for you. Forget apples - a poke bowl a day now keeps the doctor away, and Pokéology is the best spot in Houston to help you find some poke profit and sushi success.
