The Boise-based poké restaurant with a theme tied to the river — will soon be on the river.

The fourth Paddles Up Poké will open in the education building on the campus of Boise State University in January, owner Dan Landucci told BoiseDev.

“It’s cool. We are right on the river, not only for students but for anyone right off of the Greenbelt, complete with its own dining room.”

Paddles Up will take over the former Freshii space, a chain concept that first opened in 2016.

“My wife and I are Boise State alumni, I’ve had a passion to be involved with the school,” Landucci said. “We feed the football team and coaches every week – and the majority of our online deliveries are going to the campus or around the campus.”

Paddles Up will keep its store on 9th St. in Downtown Boise – as well as locations on McMillan and in Ketchum. The new store will feature a similar menu, with sizes and price points customized for the college audience. Landucci said workers will prep on-site, with fresh fish and other ingredients.

The new Paddles Up Poké location will open January 13th.
