We are best known for our mellow reggae music and relaxed setting where customers are able to experience sushi dining. Hooked on Sushi is where you bring your family, friends, and co-workers to have a quick lunch or a full dining experience. Hooked on Sushi is devoted to providing an environment in which each customer is able to dine as frequently as four times a week.

THE H.O.S.TORY


Hooked on Sushi was a mom-and-pop shop originally founded by an elderly couple in their early 60s. In hopes for the restaurant to be an immediate success, the owners decided to sell the restaurant within less than a year of opening. 

The restaurant was sold to our current owners in December of 2009. On December 21, 2009 the re-born Hooked on Sushi was open for business. Minutes from opening for the first day was a concoction of big dreams, small expectations, nervousness, faith, and a sprinkle of pixie dust. 

The restaurant slowly picked up momentum through the hard work each team member put into the organization- and the restaurant was able to connect to its customers and build  great relationships. The loyal customers began to bring their family, friends, and acquaintances. Popularity spread like wildfire. Soon we had a chain of customers who were hooked on sushi, and a line out the door.

Through the hard work and dedication of the Hooked on Sushi Team, we have built and continue to build great relationships- whether it be our customers, vendors and partners. 

Every day we open for business is another game day. We prepare to greet the customers with the same butterflies that were there on 2009. As Owner-Chef Brian passes out the Red Bulls to the employees, we all hope that the team work will help us pull through the evening.
