Island Fin Poké to Open First Utah Location

Island Fin Poké to Open First Utah Location

Island Fin Poké – the fast-casual restaurant famous for its Hawaiian-style build-your-own poké bowls – is thrilled to announce the opening of its first location in Utah. Located at 613 East 400S Ste. Dthe new restaurant will be a true family business, with the location being operated by Hannah Stout and her family. Stout, who has had a life-long passion of serving others and delivering exceptional hospitality, is elated at the opportunity to bring Island Fin Poké to the people of Salt Lake City. This will be the first Island Fin Poké restaurant she intends on opening in the area, with a goal to open more in the near future. 

With the restaurant slated to open on October 24, Island Fin Poké of Salt Lake City will serve healthy and flavorful poké bowls (pronounced “poh-kay”). Poké is a popular Hawaiian dish consisting of proteins, nourishing toppings and served over lettuce or rice. Guests can choose from responsibly sourced ingredients and create their own customized poké bowl, with a selection of over eight proteins, 25 different toppings, nine gluten-free house-made sauces, and specialty mix-ins. The endless possibilities allow guests to get creative and try something new every visit. The Salt Lake City restaurant will offer third party delivery options, online ordering through the Island Fin Poké app and indoor seating.

“We love Utah and have made it our home for the past 10 years,” said Stout. “SLC is such a special place and we could not think of a better community to bring this deliciously healthy food concept. We are so grateful to have our store manager, Clarissa Rodriquez on board with us to help bring our new restaurant to life. Food is one thing, but what we love most about Island Fin Poké is the brand’s focus on the people. Working with an incredible manager and team who also share the vision of bringing great food to our community has been the most fun aspect of this project”

Opening her own business has been on Stout’s mind for a while, but it wasn’t until she did more research into the concept and tried Island Fin Poké’s unique poké bowls across the state of Florida, that she finally found the perfect fit. While researching the concept, Stout tried as many Island Fin Poké locations as she could to experience the brand in its entirety. Throughout her journey, Stout fell in love with the brand’s Hawaiian-inspired food, its beach décor and family-oriented company culture.

“The poké industry as a whole, continues to grow at a staggering rate, but our passion for our food almost transcends the business projections,” said Mark Setterington, CEO and Co-Founder of Island Fin Poké. “There’s something very rewarding in bringing healthy and traditional island flavors to local communities throughout the country.”

The opening of the brand’s first Utah location marks a significant step in Island Fin Poké’s continued expansion throughout the U.S. For more information,
