Thomas Nguyen founded Pokémoto in New Haven, CT in 2017. While living in Hawaii, he discovered and fell in love with traditional Hawaiian poké. He realized there was a gap in the New England market which is known for amazing seafood but was missing poké. Thomas gambled on a poké bowl company in a vacant location across from Yale University and risked it all! Luckily, it was a success and the first Pokémoto shop was born!
