“We’re excited to finally open Melbourne, the first Kona Poké in Brevard County,” says Co-Founder Ernie Falco III in a statement. “As a Brevard county resident myself, my team and I couldn’t be happier to bring our love of fresh, healthy, quick-serve food options to the local community. We look forward to everyone joining the celebration all day and experiencing the incredibly delicious, unmatched fresh island bowl offerings we’re known for.”

Guests of Kona Poké Melbourne will enjoy Kona Poké’s healthy menu of Hawaiian-style poké bowls with fresh sushi-grade fish, chicken, shrimp or tofo, topped with their house sauces and over 40 fresh ingredients to choose from, including vegan and gluten-free options. They can choose from a variety of Poké Bowls, like classics Kona Fire and Tidal Wave, or new menu items like the Volcano Shrimp Bowl, Honey Sriracha Chicken Bowl, Smoked Wahoo Fish Dip and Poké Bites (Kona’s versions of sushi), plus Build Your Own Bowls, soup, salads and Dole Soft Serve, which they’ll savor inside Kona’s contemporary restaurant with subtle elements of poké’s Hawaiian heritage. Kona Poké Melbourne will also offer third-party delivery starting next month on Uber Eats, and pick-up orders can be placed at www.konapoke.com.

Kona Poké Melbourne is a partnership of Kona Poké Founders Matthew Ting and Ernie Falco III and Operating Partner Tyler Pracon.
