SUKI launches fifth Queensland site to celebrate first anniversary

It also released a turnover figure of $3.2 million and has big scale plans to expand nationwide by the end of 2019.

To celebrate their first birthday milestone, SUKI are inviting the Brisbane community to go down to the original store in Southbank on the 18th of April to join in the celebrations as they release their brand new menu. The team will also be offering $10 bowls all day long, with $2 from each bowl being donated to the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital, as well as a host of giveaways and competitions.

SUKI chief executive officer Kim Toovey said, “We wouldn’t be in the position we are today if it wasn’t for the Brisbane community, so we want to share our first birthday with all our lovely customers.

“We’re also releasing our brand new menu which will be rolled out across all stores. It’s the first of its kind and features a variety of nutritionist approved keto, vegan, and low sugar bowls and rolls so know it will be a hit amongst the health conscious crowd of Brisbane!”

SUKI is also opening the doors to the first North Queensland store in Townsville on the exact same day, bringing the SUKI store tally to five across the state.

Toovey added, “We will be playing host to North Queensland Cowboys and State of Origin player Gavin Cooper, who is a co-owner along with a number of other local personalities on opening day. It's set to be a big opening and we are looking forward to bringing SUKI to North Queensland.

“By the end of 2018, we plan to double our presence across Queensland, before going nationwide by the end of 2019. Our wish for growth is not purely directed at saturating the market, more so about being in key locations that provide stability and growth opportunities for our franchising partners.

“We’re always looking to break the mold of what is traditional poké and we have big plans to continue to stay ahead in the market with product innovation and developing a program to help support the communities that support our SUKI stores.

“As we grow we have a clear vision of the people growing with us. We look forward to creating opportunities for internal talent to rise as well as attracting external talent to continue to refine the brand to take it national, and eventually international,” Toovey said.
