Coconut’s Fish Cafe announced the opening of its second Scottsdale, Arizona location. Located at the intersection of Scottsdale Rd. and East Shea Blvd. in the Shea Scottsdale East Shopping Center, the new store opened to the public Friday, June 19, with a grand opening celebration, which included the brand’s award-winning food, fun and festivities.
This is the second Coconut’s Fish Cafe location for licensee Kim Kuhljuergen, who opened the original location in the Promenade Shopping Center in 2013. Kuhlijuergen plans to open two additional licensed locations in the next three years.
“The success of our first location has been phenomenal—friends, family, and neighbors throughout Scottsdale have become huge fans of our fresh fish tacos and island cuisine. We are very optimistic about our future in Arizona,” Kuhljuergen says. “From the grilled mahi mahi and ahi tuna to our soup, salads, and entrées, the food is unmatched throughout the mainland. Complete with the sights and sounds of the tropics, the atmosphere in our restaurants is vibrant. Guests feel as if they have been transported to Hawaii.”
Since opening in 2009 in Hawaii on the island of Kihei, Coconut’s Fish Cafe has become a sensation. The renowned fish taco cafe has a vibe, culture, and flavor that commands a global fan base, consistently topping best-food lists, receiving widespread food-critic acclaim and winning over the hearts of discerning customers who have made it a top restaurant on Yelp and TripAdvisor.
“The success Kim has achieved since he launched his original location is impressive,” says Michael Phillips, founder and CEO of Coconut’s Fish Cafe, who opened the first location in Kihei, Hawaii, in 2009. “We are looking forward to see what he can do with two locations as he continues to spread aloha throughout Scottsdale and surrounding communities.”
