Island Fin Poke

Meet Co-Owner

Latasha Pennant is co-owner of Island Fin Poke. Latasha resides in Bowie with her husband Sean and two daughters (Abijah & Jamelia). Latasha retired from the United States Coast Guard after 20 twenty years of honorable service. With a passion for service and community, she opened Island Fin Poke in February 2020 with her husband. Island Fin Poke serves the freshest ingredients and is currently the only stand-alone poke restaurant in Bowie, MD. Island Fin Poke takes pride in providing exceptional customer service and 100% of our employees are Prince George's County residents.


Fresh, Local Ingredients

Customers can enjoy Hawaiian-style poké bowls in a laid-back beach shack environment.

Why Island Fin Poke

"We are extremely proud and excited to bring Island Fin Poké to Bowie and the surrounding communities," said franchise owner Latasha Pennant

We chose this concept because it allows us to offer a fast, delicious, and healthy food option.


Supporting Their Community

It was important for us to open the first store in the community in which we live, and to date, we are the only standalone poké restaurant in Prince George's County.

Not only are the couple's two daughters, one in seventh grade and the other in 11th, involved in the business, but they've also try to hire local students to work in the restaurant.

We look forward to our partnership and supporting them as they grow their business
