After opening our first location in Winter Springs to an incredible reaction we wanted to share our healthy, easy to execute the idea with others and decided that franchising would be the path for Island Fin Poke Company in the future. Once we decided to franchise we knew we had to find a location that would meet our goals of a “flagship” location for franchise sales, training, and in a community that would embrace our brand.
When we signed our lease for the Lake Nona location it was a shell and dirt, but the picture was vivid in our minds of what we could do in this area. Lake Nona is a 7,000-acre master-planned, mixed-use development which boosts its world-renowned Medical City, golf courses, lush landscaping, pristine lakes, and beautiful parks. Located just ten minutes from the airport, hotels, restaurants, medical city, the area had everything you could ask for.
Lake Nona was designed around community involvement. Planners focused on creating spaces for the community to come together. Island Fin Poke has been blessed that the community has made us their own. Whether it is our regular guests, new visitors that find us right off of the airplane, or the surrounding community, Lake Nona has made us feel right at home. Come on out and check out Island Fin Lake Nona, you won’t be disappointed.
