Sushi franchise opportunities

Once considered a gourmet treat for the elite, sushi is on a wave in the UK. It has become a staple part of the huge £54 billion eating out market, and sushi can even be found in supermarket chiller cabinets, for grab and go lunch options. Asian food in general is hugely popular in the UK especially the nutritious, versatile and freshly made sushi which pampers to the growing passion for healthier eating. One survey found that 70-80% of those who consume Asian food are eating it in a restaurant or take-out setting. The same survey found that sushi has begun to feature on restaurant menus 14% more frequently; a two year growth spurt that shows no signs of stopping.

So what is stopping you from opening your own sushi based food service business?

Sushi franchises are on a roll

Having the backing and successful business model of an existing food service brand can make a big difference to your profitability and longevity. British consumers are loyal to their favourite food brands and will seek out names they trust. Plus, it is a massively price-conscious sector. A sushi franchise can pack a punch compared to stand alone ventures, offering branding, marketing spend and favourable rates for equipment and supplies.

You also get training and help with stringent food hygiene laws. Mistakes in the sushi market can be costly!

Sea of sushi franchise deals

These are just a few options for being your own boss in sushi, under the guidance of an established brand. They include a sushi kiosk under Sushi Daily, or a full service restaurant working with Japanese fusion company ISO SUSHI.


There is also the prolific YO! Sushi franchise to tempt you, or you could combine two huge UK trends, with a Chozen Noodle bar serving sushi too. When it comes to sushi franchises, getting good ideas served up quickly can make sure you are not left out in the cold. Contact us for the best option to suit you.
