Company History

Founded in 1987, Sarku Japan opened its first store in Boston, Massachusetts. Our goal was to introduce fresh "made-to-order" Japanese cuisine with high quality ingredients that provide a healthy nutritious meal alternative to traditional fast food. We were the first to establish the concept of Teppanyaki-style, freshly cooked Japanese cuisine in food courts of major regional shopping centers and we still are the only fast food operator to offer this distinguishing feature as a national standard.

Such was the success of the company that within four years, Sarku Japan opened more than 25 locations in 8 states: Massachusetts, Florida, Georgia, New Hampshire, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Colorado and Texas. By 1992, Sarku Japan had expanded beyond 50 locations with stores throughout the mid-west and eastern seaboard states.

We opened our 100th store on the west coast in 1999 and continue our western expansion initiative having since opened new stores in Arizona, California, Colorado, Oregon, Utah and Washington during the last 5 years.

In April 2002, Sarku Japan relocated to our new head office in Markham, Ontario, featuring a centralized and fully integrated back-office support center which supplies all the support needs of the field operations. The head office facility has significant expansion capability to meet the future needs of the company for many years to come. Currently, the Sarku Japan family has an ever growing network of over 180 stores in 33 states with more openings occurring throughout the year all across the country. We look forward to celebrating our 200th store in the near future.
