The Danish-Japanese brand is set to open its largest restaurant to date, spanning three storeys, on the King’s Road in Chelsea. It is also opening a site on the corner of Beak Street and Bridle Street, within a new Soho development.
The openings will be the Sticks’n’Sushi’s eighth and ninth UK restaurants, and its sixth and seventh in London, and demonstrate the company’s confidence in the industry for the coming year.
The restaurants will create 150 hospitality jobs at all levels, and recruitment will commence over the next few months.
Sticks’n’Sushi’s first London restaurant opened in Wimbledon in 2012 and has since been joined by sites in Covent Garden, Greenwich, Canary Wharf and, most recently, at the Victoria Nova development. Outside London, it operates restaurants in Cambridge and Oxford.
The brand was founded 20 years ago by brothers Jens and Kim Rahbek after the duo were inspired by their half-Danish half-Japanese parentage. It is well known in Denmark, and also operates in Germany.
The Copenhagen-based group serves a blend of both culinary traditions, mixing sushi with meat or vegetable yakitori grilled to order.
