How Do You Roll? Sushi Shop Hires Buxton to Focus on Real Estate Growth: Turning Sharks into Sushi

How Do Your Roll? Custom sushi shop hires Buxton to define real estate strategy based on customer data and analytics.

Fort Worth, Texas (PRWEB) April 02, 2013 - How Do You Roll?, the Austin, Texas-based custom sushi restaurant, has partnered Buxton to help with the restaurants’ franchise expansion strategy. The rapidly growing concept currently operates 12 locations in four states. The brand was recently featured on ABC’s popular show Shark Tank and accepted a deal for a significant investment to help expedite the growth of the concept.

As a client of Buxton, How Do You Roll? will utilize their predictive model via Buxton’s web-based platform SCOUT.
