Ginger Sushi + Poke Shop Can Be Ideal for Non-Restaurant Industry Entrepreneurs
Proven business model attracts professionals from varied backgrounds who share a passion for high-quality sushi and extraordinary customer service
Canadian brand Sushi Shop™ is a first-to-market concept ready to sweep the United States, where it is known as Ginger Sushi + Poke Shop™, with its affordable, adventurous menu and contemporary, chic restaurant design.
Its proven business model backed by robust training and support has attracted many professionals outside the restaurant industry to the franchise opportunity over the past nearly 20 years. And most franchise owners did not have significant prior experience in the restaurant business or in creating and preparing sushi, meaning that the brand offers a remarkable opportunity for any entrepreneur looking to make a mark in his or her community’s dining scene.
A passion for great food and for people are a winning formula
One of the many benefits of joining the Ginger Sushi + Poke Shop franchise family is gaining access to the seasoned and robust support teams at Kahala Brands™ and MTY Group™. These franchise giants own 60 brands and have franchised more than 5,500 locations in nearly 30 countries and so are well versed in streamlined, efficient operations. While there may be other sushi concepts to consider, a powerhouse franchisor of this size comes with the continual training support, marketing and purchasing economies of scale, which save franchisees time and money.
“Ginger Sushi + Poke Shop offers an incredible product, incredible training and incredible design. All of that makes for a unique opportunity for entrepreneurs who are passionate about sushi in the United States. This is a brand an entrepreneur can take pride in,” says John Wuycheck, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development with Ginger Sushi.
Ginger Sushi provides an easily scalable business model
Ginger Sushi + Poke Shop may be new to the United States market, but in Canada where the concept is known as Sushi Shop, it’s the largest sushi chain available, with more than 150 locations. “In the United States market, there is nothing like Ginger Sushi + Poke Shop. You can start on day one and hit a home run because this is a business model that is easy to understand, and it is easy for your customers to understand. It’s a win-win,” says Jimmy Bean, owner of Sushi Shop Alexis Nihon, Montreal.
A sushi lover and fan of the brand prior to deciding to becoming a franchisee, Bean notes that Ginger Sushi + Poke Shop has a streamlined business model that is easily scalable. “I’m an individual that likes to be involved with my business. I like to be there and I like to work with my staff. It doesn’t have to be that way, though. The business can run without you there so if I wanted to open multiple stores, it definitely gives me the opportunity and I could.”
Ginger Sushi is now bringing this proven concept to the United States, where sushi is a $3 billion annual industry that continues to grow. We’re actively seeking entrepreneurs with a passion for sushi, for leading a team and for taking a meaningful role in their communities to join us as we rapidly expand across the nation.
