Founded in 2017, Freestyle Poké is a destination to experience extraordinary food served by extraordinary people. We believe people should feel good about what they eat, how it is served and their overall experience when dining in our locations. Prior to Freestyle Poké’s birth, we visited over 27 different Poké Bowl Restaurants on 5 continents, 6 different countries, interviewing owners, customers, suppliers and the communities of each of these geographic areas. Our mission was to connect with others around the World so that we could truly understand what makes an incredible tasting Poké bowl but most importantly, what does it mean to serve people in an extraordinary way. We put our learnings to the test as our Kansas City native / founder built Dubai’s first Poké bowl restaurant which quickly became one of the most popular food places in the country and earned a spot as UberEATS #1 client in the country. We are now here to make an even bigger impact in Kansas City and throughout the Midwest United States.
“Poke with a Purpose” is our ethos. At Freestyle Poke, we are about more than high quality, good tasting food; we believe in putting people before profit. Rather than viewing our team as a resource, or in other words something that gets ‘used’ for a benefit , we see our team as a “source” of contribution. We provide a space where each member has a voice and the opportunity to contribute and influence decisions at any level, where ideas or directives no longer come from the only the top down but are continually generated amongst the collective, where we treat each other with respect, where communication is transparent and where gossip IS NOT allowed to be spoken or listened to, where we hold each other to high levels of accountability, where communication between members and conflict resolve has a framework and set of rules so that bureaucracy dies and efficiency lives, where we operate the business as a community rather than a monarchy . “Poke with a Purpose” is our way of transforming the way people perceive, think and go about doing their work. We believe you have a lot to offer the World and that your voice matters. This is who we are, this is what we are about.

Freestyle Poké is here to consciously provide quality and delicious food to the communities we serve. We take our food seriously, as should you. We only serve responsibly harvested and sustainably raised fish, along with cage-free chicken raised WITHOUT hormones, antibiotics or steroids and the freshest hand picked ingredients we can find. We are committed to serving food in a way that provides all around value to our community.
We recognize that food is only part of the equation to health. When we engage in movement / exercise we impact our physical bodies in a positive way. We are committed to offering (weather permitting) FREE weekly movement classes to the public that range from Run Clubs, Yoga, Bootcamp style classes and more.
We believe another integral part of our health is how we take care of our mind. We understand the World can be a busy & stressful place and that if we don’t take care of our minds then life becomes more difficult. We realize from our business and personal relationships / experiences around the World that meditation has massively impacted individuals & groups in profoundly positive ways. We are committed to providing a space where we can help our community cultivate a more calm and peaceful state of mind & being. We are committed to providing FREE weekly Meditation sessions to our team and the public. We care about people and believe our approach and commitment to Food, Movement and Mind is the best way we can impact those we serve.
