commitment and dedication to the Chamber ' s Beer Gardens at the Garlic Festival for so many years is beyond impressive . I ' ve been honored to work alongside Mark for the past four years during his time as a Chamber Board member . He takes his commitments seriously and sees things through .”
Mark said , “ I plan to get more involved with other groups , as now being a business owner I have more time available to give back to the community where I live .”
Mark ’ s goals for the future don ’ t stop with where he is at right now . He hopes to open more restaurants , whether quick-serve or full-service . With Poki Bowl , he said he “ hopes to learn more about what it takes to operate and own a restaurant , to be able to grow into multiple stores or other concepts in the future .”
But don ’ t worry — no matter how big his dreams , Mark doesn ’ t plan to pursue them anywhere but here in Gilroy . “ I plan to stay in Gilroy for the rest of my life ,” he said . “ Gilroy has such a big heart and is a great community .“
