This individual has unique and personal interests that create a real passion for work and derives enjoyment from providing a positive experience for others! This individual is dedicated to a fresher, tastier, and healthier lifestyle. This individual will usually have the desire to work closely with our customers and staff throughout the life of the business. A salary, commission and bonus position can be enjoyed by this owner in addition to the profit beyond the monthly break-even point. He or she may also employ and work alongside a staff to manage the business. This provides the flexibility to come and go from the business as desired, working from an office in the location.

Grand Opening

We believe that a successful store starts with a Grand Opening Event. A well-publicized day (or even days) in which a customer base is encouraged to make their first visit to a SanSai Fresh Grill & Sushi Kitchen® location is recommended.  A mandatory Grand Opening Training is required. 

Grand Opening Day activities and communications should be planned so that they attract several important customer types. Japanese and Asian-themed elements like music, food and beverage samples, fashion, and art, all support our brand and provide appeal to our audience segments. Discounts available over a specified range of time also encourage trial by all potential customers.
