The story of Genki Sushi began with the vision of a 24-year-old Japanese sushi chef, Fumio Saito. Saito dreamed of creating a modern sushi restaurant with an unusual feature known as a 'Kaiten' (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.
Not long after, kaiten sushi became a household name in the region of Japan. 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.
Genki Sushi's move into the international arena in 1992 marked a new era for the company with rapid regional expansion worldwide over the years. Today, Genki Sushi has outlets opening in Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Kuwait, Philippines, China, Australia, Cambodia, Thailand and Hawaii.
Genki Sushi launched the first “Kousoku Express” store in Japan as a latest innovation to better serve customers their orders the freshest and fastest way.
Singapore re-introduced Genki Sushi at Orchard Central as the first sushi restaurant in Singapore that operates and delivers sushi via the “Kousoku Express” system. This allows customers to instantly order their favorite sushi on a wireless touch-screen panel and receive their orders via the speedy double rail system. Genki Sushi Singapore was also the first “Kousoku” Genki out of Japan.
Today, Genki Sushi Singapore operates a total of 6 outlets and with more to come.
