Matt Gustafson spent the last 12 years in the Oil and Gas industry and was looking for a way to diversify. After six months of research into all different opportunities, they came across Island Fin Poke' Co and immediately knew that was the one. The franchise was a perfect fit for their family, offering a fast and fresh alternative to traditional food wrapped up in a casual Hawaiian-style restaurant. For Matt it has always been about family, so with Island Fin Poke' being about Ohana, it was an easy decision.
Growing up and living in the Spring / Woodlands area of North Houston, they saw an opportunity for Island Fin Poke' in their community. With their first store opening earlier this year, they have plans to open two more stores in their market in the near future and are excited about the growth of Island Fin Poke' as a national brand across the country.
