LemonShark Poké is the healthy, friendly poké concept that pioneered the “fine casual” restaurant movement.
Marketplace at Avalon Park’s Lemon Shark Poké offers chef-inspired poké creations available in signature bowls, build-your-own bowls, “pokérritos” rolls and wonton nacho options.
The healthy menu is inspired by the lemon shark, who is a notorious discerning and picky eater, feeding on only the highest quality fish.
Business partners Diana Viera and Bruce Galicia have owned and operated restaurants in central Florida for more than 10 years.
Having run fast casual franchises in the Central Florida area for over a decade, Galicia started working in restaurants while in college, but didn’t really get proper training anywhere.
“I learned as I went,” Galicia admits. “I decided to purchase my first franchise in 2011 with a nationwide brand that helped me learn a lot on how to be a successful owner/operator. Then I decided to branch out to a smaller franchise concept. I was their first franchisee and learned what it was like to start up a business from the ground up.”
Now, alongside his wife and co-owner Diana, Bruce recently opened their latest fast casual franchise, LemonShark Poké, at Marketplace at Avalon Park.
“The Marketplace at Avalon Park embodies exactly what we were seeking for the next phase of our business,” said Diana Viera, Owner/Operator. “We have owned full-sized brick and mortar locations and smaller mall locations and the cutting edge, trendy eatertainment nature of the Marketplace is the perfect fit for our increasingly popular menu.”
Boasting a Hawaiian-inspired menu featuring quality-crafted Poké bowls, Hibachi bowls, small bites, and more, LemonShark Poké is focused on serving healthy, refined, high-quality and sustainable products in an inviting, upscale and modern atmosphere.
“Our food is delicious,” Diana exclaims. “Bruce and I are passionate about LemonShark Poké. We love seeing our customers happy.”
