LemonShark Poke Franchise


Lemon Shark Poké began as a collaboration between two lifelong
friends Tobi Miller and Richard Gottlieb. The duo has been immersed in
Hawaiian culture for nearly four decades, having gone on annual family
trips together to the islands while growing up. It was during these
vacations that they first encountered Hawaiian cuisine at age 11, and
immediately developed a passion for the food and the people of Hawaii.

After running their own separate restaurant ventures for several years, they
decided to bring their original love - Hawaiian cuisine - to the
mainland. In doing so, they consulted with Hawaiian native chef, Brunson
Achiu (who has brought Regional Hawaiian Cuisine to the mainland) to
develop LemonShark Poke’s unique and innovative menu.

The first two restaurants opened in Redlands and San Bernadino, CA in
2016 to rave reviews and huge success. Yelp ratings are averaging high

 LemonShark Poke awarded 26 franchises in the first
two months of franchising: San Diego, CA; Los Angeles, CA; NYC, NY;

rapid growth with over 50+ corporate employees already in place from the
franchise restaurant industry, and real estate professionals on staff
