Sarku Japan® Continues National Expansion with the Opening of Teriyaki and Sushi Express in North Brunswick, New Jersey

New store to be the third free-standing concept to open in New Jersey.

May 02, 2012 // // NORTH BRUNSWICK, NJ - Sarku Japan®, the largest and most successful Japanese Quick Service Restaurant chain (QSR) in the United States, continues the national expansion of its new free-standing concept, Teriyaki and Sushi Express, with the grand opening of a third New Jersey franchise. Located at 530 Shoppes Plaza in North Brunswick, the restaurant, touting the brand promise “Fresh Happens Here,” will feature chefs preparing made-to-order sushi and signature teriyaki recipes on a Teppanyaki grill, fresh for guests to enjoy.

Local franchisee, Van Le, a former Vice President at Bear Stearns, was tired of the corporate life and the demanding hours. Seeking an entrepreneurial opportunity, he decided to attend a Sarku Japan Franchise Seminar where he was inspired by the brand’s healthier alternative to traditional fast food, as well as the idea of flexible hours and greater work, life balance.

“It is an honor to open New Jersey’s third Sarku Teriyaki and Sushi Express concept,” said Mr. Le. “I am thrilled to be able to introduce the North Brunswick community to a tasty and healthier fast food choice in addition to having more control of my time with my family.”

“Many of our franchisees have made career changes with their decision to open a Sarku Japan® franchise,” says Bruce Kim, Assistant Vice President of Franchise Development. “We have former bankers, technical engineers, and sales and marketing professionals all finding success in owning and operating their own restaurant.”

According to Kim, with the popularity of healthy Japanese quick service food like teriyaki and sushi on the rise, there has never been a better time to open a Sarku Japan® franchise. The company offers franchisee support in all areas including training, operations, and marketing.

Sarku Japan® is now accepting franchise applications from qualified applicants. For more information, visit, call 1-800-668-3858 ext. 694, or email
