University of Hawaii Graduate Takes Love for Poke Home to Guam


Marc Elliott opened the food cart Pokeyz after returning to Guam in 2013

Guam – Marc Elliott always wanted to own his own business so after he was introduced to poke while working on his business degree at the University of Hawaii, the young entrepreneur decided to take the Hawaiian cuisine home to Guam.

He opened Pokeyz, a food cart that’s usually found parked behind the District Court in Anigua. Since it is portable Elliott does occasionally take Pokeyz on the road. Recently he sold out of poke at UOG’s charter day festivities, and he’s also found success parking outside of concerts and occasionally partners with bars.

A number of flavors are offered for the tuna poke including various pika or spicy flavors, as well as wasabi mayo, traditional Hawaiian, and a new flavor based off of Ponzu sauce.
