Scottsdale, Ariz., businessmen Jason Jantzen and Michael Zimmerman wanted to offer their fellow Arizonans the caliber of poke a discerning diner might find in California or Hawaii. The result is Ahipoki Bowl, a fast casual that plays up the type of raw fish that's featured (hence the ahi). The prototype drew enough of a following to fuel its expansion to about 30 units, but Jantzen and Zimmerman are hedging their bets with a second concept featuring brisket.
