They have addressed the need for healthier choices and the growing demand for convenience of today’s consumers, offering them the opportunity to experience sushi for all occasions.

Sushi Shop has redefined the boundaries of take-out and has pushed it to exciting new heights.

Sushi Shop ensures that all products and services are affordable, readily available and competitive in terms of price, customer service, quality and variety.


A winning combination
Sushi Shop’s unique approach to Japanese cuisine combines a prepared food section, a fine food grocery section and a beautiful boutique to create a new, convenient and complete shopping experience.

The prepared food section gives customers the opportunity to purchase a variety of sushi, maki, soups and salads - all meticulously prepared on the premises using the finest and freshest ingredients.

The fine food section offers a vast selection of sushi ingredients. Customers can also find exotic sauces, seasonings and vinegars, as well as an assortment of teas and packaged Japanese foods.

Thanks to the boutique section, customers can enjoy a total Japanese shopping experience. The variety of tableware and cooking utensils offered, helps create an authentic Japanese atmosphere. The boutique’s many marvellous gift ideas invite customers to share the delights of the Japanese dining experience.

Nutritional benefits
Sushi is known worldwide for its nutritional value. Sushi is not only rich in vitamins and minerals, but is also extremely high in omega-3 fatty acids, which have been clinically proven to reduce the risk of heart disease and to be excellent for lowering cholesterol. The calorie count in sushi depends on its ingredients, but is generally low.

Long-term growth opportunity
Sushi and related products are unquestionably increasing in popularity. Marketing analysis confirms that Sushi Shop franchises are well received and in demand, and Sushi Shop profits are rising steadily. North American and European statistics confirm the continuous market growth.

Since the early 1990s, North Americans have increased their spending on meals purchased outside the home by an astonishing 42%. The purchase of food and non-alcoholic beverages outside the home, in general, has jumped 30%.*

Location for success
Location is crucial to the success of a Sushi Shop franchise.

Sushi Shop is always looking for new, strategically located sites in order to expand its network of franchises. Sites are selected on the basis of high traffic, high visibility, adequate square footage and cost criteria. A Sushi Shop franchise generally measures between 400 and 1,000 sq. ft.

Winner of the 2002 Commerce Design Montréal Grand Prize
In 2002, Sushi Shop was awarded the prestigious Commerce Design Montréal Jury Grand Prize. Sushi Shop, in collaboration with the internationally renowned Jean Pierre Viau Design team, has created a layout that lends a unique and comfortable atmosphere.

Sushi Shop helps franchisees at all stages in the development of any new franchise, including drawing up plans, selecting equipment, coordinating and supervising the actual construction work. You can rely on Sushi Shop’s experienced contractors throughout the process that leads up to the opening of your new site.

The practical operation segment of the program specifically deals with tools and techniques developed by Sushi Shop to assist you in efficiently and effectively managing your own franchise. More specifically, this training covers quality assurance, cost control, customer service, inventory control, purchasing and ordering, as well as site maintenance.

Personal commitment
Sushi Shop franchisees all share the same passion - sushi. But passion alone is not enough: you must be prepared to put time and energy into the opening of your own Sushi Shop.

You are dynamic, open-minded and primed to invest your money in a project that makes full use of your talent for leadership. You have innate organizational skills and the ability to motivate others to accomplish great things as a team.

It is mandatory for all franchises to invest 1% of sales into local advertising and promotion. Given the importance of uniform advertising, Sushi Shop supplies guidelines and provides access to a marketing consulting service.

Sushi Shop also encourages franchisees to be active in their community.

Financial investment
It is the responsibility of each franchisee to organize the financing needed to open a site. Purchasing a franchise requires an investment of approximately $250,000. This amount includes the initial $30,000 franchise fee. It is important to keep in mind that this estimate is based on figures for previously opened franchises and the actual investment required will vary due to the customized features of each site. You can expect to invest 40% of this sum personally.
