Poké and Açai Lovers Are Invited to Celebrate Saturday, September 22 and Sunday, September 23

SEATTLE, WA (September 19, 2018)Just Poké, the Pacific Northwest inspired fast-casual poke chain founded by Seattle natives Daniel Brawer and Norman Wu, has announced the Grand Opening of its first Seattle metro restaurant in the Fremont neighborhood as it expands from its five Eastside locations in Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond and Issaquah. The Grand Opening weekend on September 22–23, 2018 is open to the public and will feature specials at the Fremont location including 25% off all bowls on Saturday and 50% off all bowls on Sunday.

Additionally, the new Fremont store cements Just Poké’s partnership with Verve Bowls by sharing space with a full Verve restaurant, unlike the smaller VB Scoops “store within a store concept” found at some other locations. The 100% organic açai bowls are made using pure açai berries which is not diluted by other filler juices and feature a variety of fresh, healthy toppings. “We are extremely thrilled to open our first Seattle neighborhood Just Poké location, especially in partnership with Verve Bowls,” stated co-founder Norman Wu.

GRAND OPENING WEEKEND: Saturday, September 22 and Sunday, September 23, 2018
HOURS: Monday to Saturday 11am to 8pm, Sunday 11am to 7pm
