Jeff Goli’s passion for healthy eating and an active lifestyle was part of the driver that brought him to become a LemonShark Poke owner, “Upon visiting many pokè shops I observed their minimal menu options and lack luster store designs, I was not impressed. Once I visited LemonShark pokè in Redlands I was instantly blown away, I loved the tropical modern decor it made it feel relaxing and inviting. Along with poké, there is hot food menu that includes Hawaiian chicken katsu, tempura shrimp, sticky pineapple chicken and small bites such as the Hawaiian favorite, spam masubi.  It is a complete experience that is all tied together with sake and a self serve beer wall, simply amazing!”

“It has always been a dream of mine to open a modern healthy restaurant, LemonShark Pokè exceeded my expectations especially after I met with the co-founders Tobi Miller and Richard Gottlieb to discuss franchising. From the start they were very genuine and welcoming, instantly I felt a connection to proceed with LemonShark,” Jeff Goli.
