"Poke was one of the hottest menu segments before the COVID-19 pandemic, and consumer demand clearly hasn’t slowed," says Sam Oches, editorial director of Food News Media. "That may explain why Island Fin was so successful even in the midst of an unprecedented crisis. With a nutritious-yet-delicious menu that offers a food adventure when real adventure seems impossible, Island Fin has emerged as one of only a handful of poke brands that stand a real shot at national growth. That made it a clear choice for the 40/40 List."
