Poké Bros. Opening in Westerville, Debuting Expanded MenuMay 16, 2018 3:00 pm Lauren Sega
After opening their first two Ohio locations in 2016 and 2017, Poké Bros. will soon add its third regional location in three years, this one at 599 S. State St. in Westerville. Owner TJ Wellman said the new store’s grand opening would coincide with some menu changes that he hopes will appeal to a larger demographic, particularly families.
Along with Poké Bros.’ typical menu of poké bowls, salads and desserts, each of the restaurant’s locations will begin serving additional items, including hot sliders with chicken and brisket, beans, and coleslaw with pineapple. The chicken and brisket can be added to bowls, too.
“We’re not straying away [from poké], we’re just adding to the menu,” Wellman said. “There’s a lot of families who would love to come, but maybe their younger brother or sister doesn’t eat it. We’re just trying to make good food available to everybody.”
The changes will begin at the Polaris location, which Wellman called their test market kitchen. The Westerville restaurant has a hood and other equipment as well, and will enable them to prepare much of the food there.
Poké Bros. Westerville will open by the end of May and will seat up to 92 people.
