Hilo’s Genki Sushi Restaurant celebrates one year

First on the Big Island to feature exclusive sushi delivery system

Genki Sushi’s newest restaurant in Hilo is the first on the Big Island to feature the company’s exclusive sushi delivery system. Host Jobeth Devera traveled to Hilo to check out this new technology.

Patrons order through a touchpad at the table and freshly prepared food arrives at the table on the bullet train. Jobeth got to try several of the new menu items, including Fried Squid Combo and Spicy Ahi. The restaurant, located at the Prince Kuhio Plaza, also offers “Bento to Go” with a variety of options such as garlic chicken, squid karaage, chicken katsu, chicken karaage, spicy Ahi and Ahi poke. All these items are available at any Genki Sushi statewide.

About Genki Sushi
The story of Genki Sushi began with the vision of a 24 year old Japanese sushi chief, Fumio Saito. Saito dreamed of creating a modern sushi restaurant with an unusual feature known as “kaiten sushi” (literally translated as “revolving”). In December 1968, he created the concept of “kaiten sushi” and pioneered the use of a revolving conveyor belt to serve sushi, combining serving traditional sushi with modern technology. The new concept caught on fast in Japan. The success of kaiten sushi saw the opening of outlets in the prefecture of Tochigi in the Kanto region and in a town named Utsunomiya. In 1990 Genki Sushi Co. LTD was established and in 1991, listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.  With its dedication to freshness, the company quickly gained public support and successfully expanded further throughout Japan.

As a result, the company under its trade name, Genki Sushi, has grown not only in Japan, but also throughout the rest of the world.  Genki Sushi is proud to offer a product that is synonymous with Japan’s unique culture and the principle of “customer comes” first.  Since the establishment of Genki Sushi’s first subsidiary in the United States, the business has expanded into four countries outside of Japan.
