Aloha Poke Co., the fast casual poke brand, announced its newest Chicago-area location in the North Shore suburb of Deerfield. The store is now open and located at 654 Deerfield Road. The Deerfield restaurant will be the 21st store in the brand’s system, the 14th company-owned store, and the 10th store in the Chicago region.
Aloha Poke Co. continues to attract fans with its sashimi grade seafood and all natural proteins, quickly packed with abundantly delicious, whole ingredients and finished with house made sauces. After their first Aloha Poke Co. experience, 80% of customers return within three weeks.
“Chicago’s North Shore communities, including Deerfield, are consistently named among the best places to live in Illinois,” said Chris Birkinshaw, CEO of Aloha Poke Co in a statement. “Our customers have been asking for us to expand to this area for years. Based on the existing demand for delicious and healthy fast causal concepts, and this terrific location, it’s the perfect opportunity to bring Aloha Poke Co. to Deerfield.”
In 2020, Aloha Poke Co. announced the development of 11 Houston, TX franchise locations. With their Cypress store, first-time franchisees Amanda and Cory Tabb opened the market in 2021. Baryalay Razi, a multi-brand, multi-unit professional franchisee, will add another 10 stores, with his Richmond, TX location also opening this month.
Aloha Poke Co. was founded in Chicago’s busy West Loop in 2016, offering its customers fast, freshly packed sashimi-grade fish paired with delicious, whole ingredients. In the seven years since its founding, Aloha Poke Co. has grown to 21 locations in Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Texas, Florida, Georgia and Washington, D.C.
