The owner of Fusion Poke plans to open a new restaurant at 329 N. Broadway in the Historic Third Ward.

The fast-casual chain is proving to be fast-growing. In 2018, Fusion opened its first Milwaukee location at 1813 E. Kenilworth and then, in 2021, added a location at 1433 N. Jefferson St. A third location is now in the works for the Third Ward (it would have been the fourth but its location in Illinois recently closed).

Fusion Poke announced, via Facebook, that the new location is “coming soon,” but the city’s online licensing system doesn’t show any new applications at this time. A look through the window shows that the space is currently under construction. Because of that, details on a future opening date are still uncertain, said owner Andy Zheng in a brief interview.

The restaurant’s other locations serve a variety of signature and build-your-own poke bowls, ramen, sushi, Korean-style wings and smoothies.

The Hawaiian-inspired restaurant will be the latest addition to the Broadway Market Lofts, a window shopper-friendly collection of storefronts with apartments on the upper floors. Other commercial tenants in the building include Francesca’s, a clothing store, and IVme, a medical spa. The ground floor of the three-story building underwent renovations in 2016 and has been on the market since 2017. An earlier listing flyer from Transwestern indicates that the Fusion space is 2,454 square feet.
