Since its founding in 2008 You Me Sushi has seen incredible success, thrilling London with its unique approach to Japanese cuisine. After opening its first sushi takeaway store in London’s Marylebone district, a second outlet opened in London Westfield in 2010, and today the brand operates in 18 sites across the capital. You Me Sushi is now planning to share its innovative menu in an expansion across the UK, with plans to grow to 35 sites by the end of 2023 and then to double that estate again going forward.
The You Me Sushi menu is delightfully varied, offering happy customers many healthy, fresh options. Choices include a huge range of You Me Sushi boxes, hot katsu and teriyaki dishes, poke bowls, and an impressive selection of Vegan options. With the soaring popularity of clean-eating, raw, and plant-based diets, and an increasingly growing health-conscious demographic, there has been a huge surge in demand for You Me Sushi cuisine. Sushi in particular has seen a spectacular growth in demand across the UK and has now become the 4th largest “food to go” product.
A You Me Sushi location can achieve High Street level sales even from secondary locations, given a huge demand for deliveries and catering. Through a combination of eat-in, takeaway, and deliveries, some You Me Sushi have been known to reach sales of up to £40,000 in a week. Currently, 65% of the brand’s business comes from delivery sales, supported by its very own delivery infrastructure. Between using its own You Me Sushi delivery app and reliable drivers, not only can the brand ensure that products are in perfect condition every time, but profit margins are higher for the brand as it is less reliant on 3rd party aggregator sales than its competitors.
You Me Sushi is not just a smart business model with terrific products and a burgeoning market, it also offers a solid support system for its franchisees. Help with location sourcing, fit out, recruitment and local marketing are all provided from the start of your franchise journey. Ongoing support is also available through training courses, menu development, and national social media campaigns, to name but a few.
This brand is currently searching for great business operators with experience in either food, hospitality, management, or marketing. You Me Sushi also has multi-site developer opportunities and is open to discussion of these ambitious plans if you have the relevant experience and resources. In addition, delivery only models for areas with low footfall, but excellent demographics nearby, are available.
