Students of Arizona State University, rejoice! Ahipoki Bowl has announced plans for their third confirmed location in Tempe at 1015 S. Rural Road directly across from campus between Apache and University.
For years “The Wedge” at 1015 S. Rural was a beloved bookstore, but has been repositioned into a newly redesigned structure with coveted Rural Road frontage facing ASU. Ahipoki Bowl is expected to begin build-out this fall with a tentative opening date of March 1, 2017.
Poke, a Hawaiian based dish featuring diced sushi grade fish like ahi tuna, salmon, shrimp and yellowtail garnished with vegetables and exotic toppings like daikon sprouts, seaweed salad and masago served over a bowl of rice is the quick serve industry’s hottest new concept.
Ahipoki Bowl Arizona, LLC and Bad Dog Concepts are owned by Michael Zimmerman and Jason Jantzen. Zimmerman also owns Republic West Home, a twenty year old construction company specializing in remodeling and restaurant build-outs. Jantzen is owner of Phoenix Marketing Associates, a top marketing and PR firm in Scottsdale with a long track record of successes in marketing within the restaurant and hospitality industries.
“The campus at ASU has been on our radar from day one, explained Jantzen. “Ahipoki Bowl has a massive appeal to health conscious millennials and we expect this new location to be our busiest location to date and a launching point for our upcoming beer and wine program roll out.”
