The Uncle Sharkii Story
From humble beginnings, Uncle Sharkii is the brainchild of Raymond & Fenny. Fenny is a tenacious, funny, and hip girl from Hunan, China, while Raymond is a laid-back native Hawaiian who exemplifies all aspects of “chill.” Despite being born into different worlds, it seems like fate pushed Fenny and Raymond towards each other. In 2017, they both owned and operated a small, brick-and-mortar ice cream store together.
After a year, Fenny wanted to shake things up and introduce a menu item that stems from her husband’s heritage: the poke bowl. Given the chilled environment of an ice cream shop, it was a seamless transition. What began as a trickle of curiosity from their regulars grew to huge waves of demands from newcomers!
With a purpose to serve the people with “poke bowls made simple,” Fenny’s new concept bore potential for huge growth. All she needed was a unique brand.
Exclusive Food Court Model
Flash back to a life-changing family trip to China. Fenny and Raymond took their daughter, Melody, to meet Fenny’s family members in Hunan. When Melody met her uncle for the first time, he gifted her with a plush shark toy while they ate Asian snack foods together.
This intimate scene of family bonding over food was a memory Fenny could not shake from her head. That’s when she realized that she should frame her business around this memory. Uncle Sharkii is the bond between a girl named Melody and her uncle sharing the love of food, family, and of course, the gift of a plush shark!
