“I’ve sat in sushi bars, really fine ones, and I know how hard this guy worked, how proud he is. I know you don’t need sauce. I know he doesn’t even want you to pour sauce.

What are some smart ways to promote sushi?

Due to demand, a reported 6.72% of US restaurants offer sushi on the menu. Given the high competition in the sushi market, how can restaurant owners promote their products and stand out from the competition?

Here are a few proven ways to promote sushi restaurant:

  • Promote your sushi business in social media. Use attractive pictures and catchy slogans like the ones you found here.
  • Advertise in tv, radio or newspapers.
  • Have a build-your-own sushi menu where customers can order what they are craving for.
  • Have posters, billboards, banners or tarpaulins in strategic areas where volume of people is high.
  • Attract customers through discounts, coupons, or happy hours.
  • Have top celebrities or chefs endorse your restaurant. You could even start with more affordable local food bloggers or restaurant critics.
  • Participate in food fairs and sponsor events where people can sample rolls to get the word out.
  • Host a special event where you demonstrate cutting a whole tuna. Believe it or not these events are well attended.

While it’s not super authentic, my favorite kind of sushi to order is the Crunch Roll or Spicy Tuna. Let me know your favorite reaching out on social media.
