Why Ginger Sushi Boutique Franchise is a Top Food Franchise for 2018
Ginger Sushi Boutique franchise is ready to transform American sushi culture into something bold, exciting and fresh
Ginger Sushi Boutique™ was named by Entrepreneur magazine as a Top 200 Food Franchise for 2018. Our inclusion on the prestigious annual list is especially significant because our brand only began franchising operations in the United States this year.
The ranking system is based on the research the publication compiles to produce their annual “Franchise 500” list of the year’s most worthy investment opportunities. Hundreds of brands are analyzed on key metrics such as “costs and fees, size and growth, franchisee support, brand strength and financial strength and stability.”
“We’re proud to have been named as a Top 200 Food Franchise for 2018,” says Marc Benzacar, Senior Vice President with Ginger Sushi Boutique. “We’ve proven the brand for 18 years in Canada, where we’re known as Sushi Shop, and have become one of the largest sushi concepts in the nation. As we begin franchising in the United States, where sushi is a $3 billion industry, we’re confident that our brand will not only experience rapid growth, but also become a dynamic part of the American sushi landscape.”
A proven model, an innovative menu and industry-leading support makes Ginger Sushi Boutique a wise investment
While Ginger Sushi Boutique is new to the United States, our brand is not new. Founded in 2000 in Montreal, Canada, our brand has flourished for nearly 20 years, growing to over 150 locations in the nation. In turn, our proven business model has helped dozens of entrepreneurs, the majority of whom had no experience in the sushi or restaurant industry, own thriving sushi restaurants in their communities.
The reason for our growth is obvious: our food is entirely different than anything else you can get on the market and pushes the boundaries of sushi and Japanese cuisine in bold, fresh ways:
After watching the video, you may be struck by how beautiful and artistic our food appears — but don’t let our beautiful food fool you into thinking that you need to be a high-end sushi chef to franchise with us. In fact, you do not need any restaurant experience whatsoever before franchising with us.
We provide an intensive four weeks of training at one of the brand’s operating restaurants, where we teach you how to expertly prepare and serve our brand’s products. While you’re in the restaurant, you also will work in every role and learn every aspect of how to manage your Ginger Sushi business: how to take inventory, how to greet customers, and how to lead your crew. This training will help you find the confidence you need to own and run a thriving business.
“We test all of our new franchisees before they graduate training,” says Marie-Elene Carrier, Director of Operations with Ginger Sushi. “If they pass, they can move on to focusing on their Grand Opening. If they fail, they have to attend training again. We’re very serious about training because our brand is known for artistic and complex products, as well as exceptional customer service. We have to maintain our high standards for our brand’s customers.”
In addition, you will be supported by Kahala Brands™ and MTY Food Group™, which gross more than $2 billion in annual sales and have 5,500 locations open in nearly 30 countries around the world. Kahala Brands’ portfolio includes brands such as Cold Stone Creamery® and Pinkberry®, which means you will have access to a robust, industry-leading support network that includes extensive marketing assistance, ongoing coaching and more.
