Bring A New, Yet Proven, Concept To Town With Ginger Sushi + Poke Shop
This innovative, globally-backed franchise is expanding in the United States after nearly 20 years of transforming Canadian sushi culture
Asian cuisine is the fastest growing food segment in the United States, with sushi alone racking up more than $3 billion in annual sales. There are few choices, however, for high quality and affordable sushi establishments that stand out from the predictable California and spicy tuna rolls found at the neighborhood supermarket or as an add-on menu item.
Ginger Sushi + Poke Shop™ is about to change all that. The unique, first-to-market concept that has become a fan favorite over the past two decades in Canada as Sushi Shop™ is aggressively seeking U.S. franchisees. This brand stands out for many reasons, not the least of which is owner support, thanks to backing by two of the world’s largest franchisors: Kahala Brands™ and MTY Food Group™.
Ginger Sushi + Poke Shop’s proven business model fueled growth to more than 150 Sushi Shop locations in Canada. The franchise has helped dozens of entrepreneurs realize their dreams of opening a restaurant that is straightforward to manage, as well as a business that was quickly embraced by sushi lovers for its high-end, chic decor and adventurous and playful menu items not found anywhere else.
Sushi franchise opportunity offers immersive training and world-class marketing support
A major perk of becoming a Ginger Sushi + Poke Shop franchisee is having access to support teams from both Kahala Brands and MTY Group, two global franchise powerhouses who own approximately 60 brands with more than 5,500 locations in nearly 30 countries. This level of support, which includes in-house developed, year-round marketing and public relations campaigns, frees up owners’ time so they can concentrate on running their business. This also can reduce the stress level generated by marketing a business on their own, as these expert teams provide extensive, ongoing marketing support.
“We recognize that our franchisees are not marketing experts,” says Emilie Mercier, Marketing Manager. “We support them at the local level, from their grand opening and every day after, and we support them at the national level to help grow brand awareness and encourage customers to visit their restaurant.”
Ginger Sushi + Poke Shop also offers intensive, hands-on training for owners. Every franchisee learns to masterfully prepare and serve all the items on the menu, spending four weeks at an operating restaurant for an immersive training experience. They become experts in preparing and serving Ginger Sushi + Poke Shop products, from hand-rolling sushi to creating delicious variations of Poke bowls. Additionally, they learn the ins and outs of daily operations, working in every role in the restaurant to prepare for grand opening day and beyond.
