The inspiration for Fresh Coast came in 2014 after we visited the Big Island of Hawaii. As huge foodies, we quickly discovered the local favorite dish – poke. From the first bite, we became instantly hooked by the deep flavors of the fresh fish mixed with savory, spicy & sweet sauces and didn’t eat much else the rest of our stay. On a quest to bring something new to the East Coast, we opened the doors to our first location in Newark, NJ in August of 2017 under the name “Ono Grinds Poke”, a nod to the trip that inspired us as Ono Grinds translates to “delicious food” in Hawaiian slang. From the beginning, we focused on standing out from typical quick service concepts. Everything we created was designed to create a unique dining experience – from the super friendly service, to our bright and tropical décor – and of course, our fresh, bold flavors.
Our approach quickly resonated with our community & as word of mouth spread, the lines in our small Newark shop started stretching into the street. As we continued to grow, we saw our restaurant become a symbol for a healthier lifestyle. While still inspired by the stress-free Hawaiian surf culture and flavors we experienced on our trip, we wanted our name to reflect the personality that our restaurant took on. We had become more than just a Hawaiian spot as our menu expanded beyond poke and we began drawing inspirations from the coastal regions of places like California & Hawaii. So, in January of 2019 we changed to our current name, Fresh Coast. Fresh Coast is now a one stop shop for healthy living, offering fast, fresh & delicious coastal inspired bowls & smoothies that leave you satisfied, energized and ready for the adventures ahead.
OWN A FRESH COAST! We're looking for motivated & energetic owner operators ready to create their own fresh coast story.
We initially opened Fresh Coast (then Ono Grinds Poke) in 2017 to bring diners a new restaurant experience. From the freshness & quality of our ingredients, to our vibrant décor & friendly service we’ve aimed to re-invent the way people ate. Too often in our own lives, we were forced to make the choice between eating quality, health conscious food – or eating something that actually had some flavor. One of our core beliefs is that you shouldn’t have to ever make that choice, which is why at Fresh Coast we provide customers with mouthwatering bowls & smoothies that are both delicious and packed with health benefits. Almost immediately, our mission resonated with the community and as word got out, the lunch line started wrapping outside of our small Newark restaurant. In the time since, we’ve expanded on this mission creating a true one stop shop for healthy eating. We’ve learned & grown so much in such a short time and are ready to bring our unique flavors and culture to new markets.
