You don’t have to be
a Master Sushi Chef

Many believe that mastering the art of sushi making takes years, but Sushi Shop does not require franchisees to have any experience in preparing sushi. Or even in the restaurant industry! In fact, the wide majority of our franchisees did not know the first thing about how to prepare sushi.

We provide an intensive four weeks of training at one of the brand’s operating restaurants, where we teach you how to expertly prepare and serve our brand’s products. While you’re in the restaurant, you also will work in every role and learn every aspect of how to manage your Sushi Shop business. This training will help you find the confidence you need to own and run a thriving business.

Reach our high
quality standards

“We test all of our new franchisees before they graduate training” says Marie-Elene Carrier, Director of Operations with Sushi Shopi. “If they pass, they can move on to focusing on their Grand Opening. If they fail, they have to attend training again. We’re very serious about training because our brand is known for artistic and complex products, as well as exceptional customer service. We have to maintain our high standards for our brand’s customers.”
