About IRO Sushi

IRO Sushi began in 2014 by its Founder Chhong and has since grown to 17 stores across the UK.

With an ever-increasing demand for healthy, fresh alternatives to the traditional fast-food takeaway, Chhong identified a tremendous opportunity in this ever-increasing market and quickly went to work developing IRO Sushi into one of London’s most popular Sushi Brands with a reputation for serving up the finest Sushi and Poke bowls at an affordable price.

IRO Sushi is continuing its expansion and we have a variety of new franchise opportunities right now across the UK.

Why is IRO Sushi a great investment?

The UK Sushi market has grown rapidly in recent years, driven by consumers looking for a quick lunch on the go, a healthier alternative to the traditional evening takeaway or dining out with friends.  In other words, Sushi is a phenomenon, not a fad. The advantage of IRO Sushi is that our menu goes beyond the traditional Sushi Rolls. Our menu allows our customers to try exciting and new flavour profiles.

Sushi is an affordable cuisine and returns a strong margin. Our stores are simple to manage with minimal staffing requirements. For this reason, investing in an IRO Sushi franchise will undoubtedly give you a quick return on investment compared to other food businesses.

You can open a IRO Sushi for as little as £80,000 excl VAT and typically expect a return on investment in under 2 years.
