Since opening earlier this year in Scottsdale, Ahipoki Bowl has wasted no time becoming a go-to destination for diners in search of a fast, healthy meal on the go. And although it's only been two months since the restaurant made its debut, the company's already announcing plans for a second location.
According to owners Michael Zimmerman and Jason Jantzen, a second Ahipoki Bowl restaurant will open in Chandler by mid-July. The new location will be inside the Chandler Pavilions Shopping Center, located at 820 North 54th Street in Chandler.
“Since the day we opened, we’ve been bombarded with requests for a second location ranging from North Scottsdale to CenPho to Tempe and the West Valley," Jantzen says. "We finally agreed that Chandler would give us the best opportunity to duplicate the success we’ve experienced in Scottsdale."
But if the second restaurant isn't in your hood, either, there's hope.

"We do have other lease offers in the works and will release those locations as soon as possible,” Jantzen adds.
Ahipoki Bowl, located at 2805 North Scottsdale Road, specializes in build-your-own poke bowls. Bowls consist of the diner's choice of fish, sauces, and various toppings — think everything from crab and seaweed salad to pickled ginger and cucumbers — all of which is served over a bed of either rice or mixed greens.
