One year on and Brisbane’s first poké restaurant SUKI has announced the launch of its 5th Queensland location, releasing a turnover figure of $3.2 million and has large scale plans to expand nationwide by the end of 2019. Since opening its first store in April 2017, SUKI has changed the Brisbane dining scene, bringing the unique flavours of Hawaii to Australia and created an empire which has sold more than 214,000 poké bowls and employed more than 100 team members, in just 12 months.
To celebrate its first birthday milestone, SUKI are inviting the Brisbane community to pop down to the original store in South Bank on Wednesday 18 April to join in the celebrations as it releases its new menu. The team will also be offering $10 bowls all day long, with $2 from each bowl being donated to the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital, as well as a host of giveaways and competitions. SUKI Chief Executive Officer Kim Toovey explains “We wouldn’t be in the position we are today if it wasn’t for the Brisbane community, so we want to share our first birthday with all our lovely customers. We’re also releasing our brand new menu which will be rolled out across all stores. It’s the first of its kind and features a variety of nutritionist-approved keto, vegan, and low sugar bowls and rolls so know it will be a hit amongst the health conscious crowd of Brisbane!” And if the enormous success the brand has had wasn’t enough, SUKI is also opening the doors to the first North Queensland store in Townsville on the same day, bringing the SUKI store tally to five across the state.
“We’re always looking to break the mold of what is traditional poké and we have big plans to continue to stay ahead in the market with product innovation and developing a program to help support the communities that support our SUKI stores.”
