Ginger Sushi Franchise Owners Capitalize On Food-Transparency Craze
Established Canadian brand fills need for healthier, customizable food options for today’s discriminating consumer
Transparency is one of the top trends impacting the food industry, according to Forbes and other highly regarded business publications. Canadian brand Ginger Sushi + Poke Shop™ is poised to attract health-conscious consumers in the U.S. who are passionate about the food they eat and don’t want to compromise taste and quality.
Ginger Sushi + Poke Shop™ is ready to become the first nationally recognized franchise in the United States to showcase its unique spin on sushi and poke bowls. While sushi concepts are not new, no one prepares and serves sushi in Ginger Sushi + Poke Shop’s signature style.
Founded in 2000 in Montreal, the brand has grown to 150 locations across Canada where it is known as Sushi Shop. The menu infuses traditional sushi with a sense of adventure and multicultural playfulness that resonates with today’s consumer who seeks fresh and inventive food choices. It’s a generation that has grown up with the Internet and global culture at their fingertips.
“With sushi, you’re in a market not everyone is in,” says John Wuycheck, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development. “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.”
Ginger Sushi puts original spin on popular sushi and Poke bowls
Sushi is enormously popular, but access to fresh, high-quality sushi can be somewhat limited for American consumers. Ginger Sushi is ready to capitalize on the underserved demand for affordable sushi that stands out from the typical product they see at their local grocery store.
The Poke bowls also offer fresh approaches to what Business Insider magazine called the biggest trend in the fast-casual industry. Poke bowls are delicious, nutrient-packed, flavor explosions that utilize several of the core sushi ingredients — but are styled and served more like a salad. The food-bowl trend is huge in the United States, and Sushi Shop is already established as one of the largest sellers of Poke bowls in Canada thanks to the unique twist embraced by the brand’s chefs.
Ginger Sushi + Poke Shop has a proven track record that goes back nearly 20 years; we have helped dozens of entrepreneurs realize dreams of opening their own sushi businesses. Backed by two of the largest franchisors in the world, Kahala Brands™ and MTY Food Group™, Ginger Sushi + Poke Shop offers exceptional training, ongoing marketing support and a commitment to the bold, fresh flavors that customers crave.
