Project Summary

PokéOno sells fast casual Hawaiian style sushi known as Poke, from locations in Ardmore, PA, Conshohocken PA, and Baltimore, MD. Back in 2016 as they were preparing to open their initial Ardmore location PokeOno reached out to the team at Sparkable for help in solidifying their business plan and securing a local small business grant. We conducted in depth research into the surrounding area, developed customer profiles, and created in-depth forecasts of various sales scenarios. We also built out detailed segmentation models and helped to develop their initial marketing strategy.

PokeOno was successful in securing their grant to help fund the creation of the first brick and mortar location and has gone on to open two more locations over the past few years. Sparkable can help your business or non-profit to better understand their audience and secure funding through grant initiatives.
