Company Summary

While some fast food entities offer fish, there's never been a concentrated effort to serve ALL types of seafood in a fast-casual setting. Americans increasingly demand healthy fast-food, and seafood is an untapped answer. The fresh fish market serves up to-go meals for under $10 in under 8 minutes, packages seafood for home cooking, and services the adjacent family-friendly diner, featuring the infamous cereal wall.
