Twenty-year-old Sushi Sushi has 137 stores across Australia, and today opened its first New Zealand outlet at the revamped Botany Town Centre. It plans to open two more outlets by early 2020.
Sushi Sushi specialises in hand-held sushi rolls. Like popular fast casuals such as Chipotle, Sushi Sushi allows shoppers to choose their own ingredients from a salad-bar-style selection of more than 20 locally-sourced options. These include pink beetroot rice, hot crispy chicken, salt and pepper squid, and more.
A range of initiatives are being rolled out to celebrate the company’s launch into New Zealand, including free sushi, a taiko drumming demonstration, calligraphy work, a kids’ sushi workshop, origami, and the chance to win a trip to Japan.
