October 26, 2018 // Franchising.com // BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - LemonShark Poké, a “fine-casual” premium poké concept known for serving top-quality locally-sourced ingredients is growing its footprint in its home state with its seventh California store location the town of Yucaipa. The store opened its doors on October 25 and is set to make waves in the Yucaipa restaurant society.
The LemonShark Poké in Yucaipa is a family affair. Owners Michelle Mueller, Jeff and Sue Stanley will operate the new California store. Mueller, who has 20 years of restaurant experience will be leading the day-to-day operations. Originally from Chicago, Mueller worked with a number of concepts including the Outback Steakhouse and Cracker Barrel in the mid-west. With her vast restaurant experience and the Stanley's desire to expand their portfolios, all hoped to connect with a franchise they could get behind. After moving to California in 2017, Mueller started working at the Redlands LemonShark Poké restaurant and was immediately hooked by its top-notch service, modern décor, and corporate support team.
Named after the Lemon Shark who only consumes the very best fish possible, LemonShark Poké prides itself on serving the finest quality ingredients to its guests. In addition to traditional poké offerings, the menu includes shareable appetizers such as tempura shrimp and egg rolls, and its signature Hawaii Katsu menu that features cooked-to-order, delectable entrées including chicken, Alaskan cod and more.
