How to open an exquisite sushi bar

In recent years, Japanese cuisine has become increasingly more popular throughout the world. This type of cuisine abounds in fish, vegetables, rice and crustaceans. Among the most frequently chosen dishes sushi seems to lead the list. Because of the fact that its preparation is rather time consuming, sushi is served in the so called sushi bars which specialize in this particular dish. Running a sushi bar can be a very profitable business, mainly due to the fact that such restaurants are gradually gaining more and more prestige.

The secret of a successful sushi bar is employing a professional and experienced chef who knows all the tastes and intricacies of Japanese cuisine. Alternatively, we can also prepare sushi on our own after completing an appropriate training which will acquaint us with the technique.

To maximise our profit, the sushi bar should be located in the strict centre of a large city, preferably in a shopping gallery. We should be prepared for the fact that an attractive location is not cheap. We can choose an ordinary retail space with the possibility of adapting it for our purposes, or we can choose an already adjusted gastronomic outlet. Opening a sushi bar will also be connected with some additional costs of acquiring the business license. The place should satisfy all the requirements of the Health Protection Agency. Additionally, an important matter is the interior design. In this respect we can stick to modern forms or traditional Japanese elements.

Moreover, an equally important issue is purchasing an appropriate equipment for our sushi bar. Based on the size of our business space we should specify the amount of space for our future customers. The most practical solution is purchasing the tables for 2, 4 and 6 people. The necessary kitchen equipment include a fridge, a freezer, a gas cooker, an electric stove, a dishwasher etc.
