Boston, MA, United States, 2010/10/20 - On October 21st, Sarku Japan takes its sizzling Teriyaki and made-to-order sushi from mall food courts to the streets of Orland Park, IL.
On October 21st, 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 Orland Park, IL with the opening of a new store-front Teriyaki and Sushi Express franchise. Located at 15110 B La Grange Road, the store 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.
Orland Park franchisees, Mr. Baek Chan Seong and Ms. Kyung Hye Lee, immigrated from Korea several years ago in order to establish a better life for their teenage son and daughter. With previous experience operating restaurants in Korea, the husband and wife team felt the Sarku brand offered the perfect tool to achieve the American dream.
“ Kyung Hye and I are excited to be joining the Sarku family,” said Mr. Seong. “With Sarku’s proven track record in offering fresh made-to-order Japanese cuisine, we are confident that our Orland Park franchise will be a success.”
Franchising has grown more than 40% between 2001-2008 and is expected to grow another 18,000 units in 2010, creating new job opportunities and new sources of income.
