WESLEY CHAPEL — Island Fin Poké Company opened the doors to its first Tampa Bay area restaurant at the end of October. It is the second franchise location to open, and more are planned for Florida and several other states.
“We have Hawaiian-style poké bowls with a little twist to them,” said Jeff Sproat, co-owner.
A long time small business owner, this is the first restaurant venture for Sproat, his wife, Brenda, and son, Jason Sproat.
Island Fin Poké Company is a quick casual restaurant that focuses on quality and freshness. Diners can build their own bowls by choosing from seven proteins, over 25 toppings, house made sauces and mix-ins.
Starting with a base of white rice, brown rice or spring mix, diners can add proteins such as Ahi tuna, spicy tuna, shrimp and chicken. Mix-ins include edamame, corn and sweet onions, and there are a variety of toppings such as mango, pickled ginger and crispy garlic.
Shoyu, ponzu and island fin fire are among the freshly made marinating sauces, and finishing sauces include avocado sauce and wasabi cream.
The majority of menu items are gluten-free, and there are vegetarian and vegan options.
Also on the menu is the Dole Whip which is fat free, dairy free and gluten-free. Rotating flavors include pumpkin spice, pistachio and cherry.
