The Sushi Restaurants industry is serving up a fresh round of growth following a recession-induced decline. The industry is highly fragmented and consists mainly of small, owner-operator establishments. Despite the high competition from other retailers serving sushi and the range of ethnic and American food service establishments that are also in direct competition, revenue is expected to rise. In the coming years, operating conditions are forecast to continue to improve. As the unemployment rate drops and consumers slowly regain their disposable incomes, demand for sit-down restaurants is anticipated to increase.
The industry is composed of restaurants primarily engaged in providing sushi-style foodstuffs to patrons who order and are served while seated (i.e. waiter or waitress service) or use conveyor belt-style delivery systems and pay after eating. These establishments may provide this type of food service to patrons in combination with selling alcoholic and other beverages.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
