Pokeworks is speeding up its adoption of new technology amid the new realities created by the coronavirus. The Irvine, Calif.-based poke concept is considering shifting its operations from an assembly line format to one in which customers choose their ingredients from a photographic menu board, said Mike Wu, founder and CEO. The 52-unit chain is also looking at adding touchless self-ordering kiosks. Pokeworks sales grew by 77% last year, thanks to robust unit growth.
