Co-founders Gerrit Jan and Quinta Witzel, are brother and sister from a family of seven, raised in a small town near Amsterdam, The Netherlands. After finishing high school, Gerrit Jan moved to Amsterdam to start business school and Quinta left abroad to explore the world as a fulltime model.
After having lived a healthy New York lifestyle for several years, Quinta was shocked to find that there are few healthy spots in the Amsterdam city center. Moreover, there are very little healthy AND quick places to get food on the go, for all of us busy bees running around town.
Both Gerrit Jan and Quinta found out they continuously encountered this issue and decided to do something about it.
The idea of Poké Perfect was thus born: a food concept for quick, healthy food with sustainable, fresh produce.
All right, so what is poké?
Poké (pronounced poh-kay) is a Hawaiian dish, originally consisting of sushi rice, raw fish and several different toppings served in a bowl. You could basically describe it as sushi in a bowl. If you are not a fan of raw fish – don’t worry. We have plenty of other options!
