Central Florida’s popular, fresh, fast-casual, healthy food concept Kona Poké announces its third location in Apopka, Florida slated to open in late 2021. Located at 3030 E.

Kona Poké Apopka is a joint partnership of Kona Poké Owners Matthew Ting and Ernie Falco III and Operating Partner Jesse Ting, who has been with the company for two years.

We want to promote from within the Kona Poké system, and so we are selecting key individuals that meet or exceed expectations to eventually become a partner in future Kona Poké restaurant locations as we expand.”
Ting and Falco continue, “We are also really excited to expand Kona Poké all across the state. Get ready Greater Tampa, Jacksonville and Melbourne Beach for our insanely delicious poke bowls, unmatched toppings and more.”
