Craveworthy Brands, a prominent restaurant development, operations, and investment portfolio company, is introducing a novel culinary experience with the launch of Lucky Cat Poke Company. This innovative fast-casual poke restaurant concept is designed to cater to modern dining trends and offers fresh, fast, and delicious options for patrons. The inaugural brick-and-mortar location has recently opened at the prestigious Oakbrook Center in suburban Chicago. Craveworthy plans to expand the concept through both physical fast-casual restaurants and virtual kitchen models. The brand has ambitious goals to establish virtual kitchens in 55 markets by the close of 2023.
Gregg Majewski, CEO of Craveworthy Brands, expressed excitement about Lucky Cat Poke Company’s launch, stating, “Our team has been anticipating the launch of Lucky Cat. It captures the culinary preferences of today’s consumers who are always on the go with fresh poke options – build-your-own options and our signature bowls give our guests countless options.”
The Oakbrook Center location is celebrating its debut with a grand opening event. The first 50 customers in line when the doors open on August 10 at 10 a.m. CT will receive FREE poke bowls for a year, equating to one poke bowl per week for a year. Additionally, the restaurant is offering bounce-back coupons to guests, providing a $2 discount on their next fresh poke bowl with a return visit.
Positioned within Oakbrook Mall’s food court, known as “The District,” Lucky Cat Poke Company shares space with another Craveworthy restaurant, The Budlong Southern Chicken, which also originated in Chicago.
Majewski emphasized the brand’s adaptability to modern dining preferences, saying, “We’re proudly embracing innovation in many ways to give our customers and employees the best experience possible…the location’s design is not only vibrant but equipped with a fresh and modern aesthetic, and we’re focused on speed and efficiency as we utilize the latest in ordering, operations, and kitchen technology.”
Craveworthy’s culinary experts, Chefs Robert Kabakoff and Becca McIntyre, have crafted a menu that prioritizes freshness, speed, and delightful flavors. Each menu item reflects a meticulous fusion of tastes from around the globe.
Lucky Cat Poke Company joins Craveworthy Brands’ portfolio, which includes established names like Genghis Grill, BD’s Mongolian Grill, and Flat Top Grill, as well as emerging brands like Wing It On!, The Budlong, and Krafted.
