May 03, 2011 // Franchising.com // (NORTHRIDGE, CA) – Sarku Japan®, the largest and most successful Japanese Quick Service Restaurant chain (QSR) in the United States, takes its sizzling Teriyaki and made-to-order sushi from mall food courts to the streets of Northridge, CA with the opening of a new store-front Teriyaki and Sushi Express concept. Located at 8491C Tampa Avenue, the store, which opens today, touts the brand promise "Fresh Happens Here". Sarku chefs prepare made-to-order sushi and signature Teriyaki recipes on a Teppanyaki grill, fresh for guests to enjoy.
Northridge franchisee, Brian Huang, a New York City native, worked for Chase Bank in a job he no longer found fulfilling. A loyal customer of the Sarku brand for over ten years, Mr. Huang felt the opportunity to own a Sarku Japan franchise would offer a new kind of freedom to be his own boss.
"My wife and I are thrilled to be joining the Sarku family as franchisees," said Mr. Huang. "We look forward to the freedom of being our own boss, as well as offering fresh made-to-order Japanese cuisine to the Northridge community."
In addition to Northridge, Sarku store-fronts are expected to open in metro markets such as Chicago, New York City, and Washington, D.C.
