Restaurant chain SumoSam recently opened its branch at the District Mall in Talisay City, Negros Occidental, a press release from the firm said.
“This is clearly another milestone for us,” Marvin Agustin, actor turned entrepreneur, said in the press release, referring to the fast pace of the chain’s growth in recent years. The first SumoSam store opened in 2005 and the brand now has twenty-seven branches, the press release said.
Within the past two years, the chain has expanded nationwide, from up north at the Ayala Technohub in Baguio, to down south at the Ayala Centro in Cagayan de Oro. Its first franchised store opened at the Abreeza mall in Davao in 2011, it added.
Guests are familiar with SumoSam’s bestsellers, among them, the Ebi Tempura, Chicken Teriyaki, Spicy Tuna Salad and Seafood Yakisoba.
True to its claim of having huge servings for the champion eater, SumoSam believes that continues menu innovation is one of the factors why patrons keep coming back, the press release said.
SumoSam always offers something new in the menu every six months.“Everything is prepared fresh, in-store,” Marvin Agustin was quoted as saying.
We have roving chefs from the head office to ensure consistency and quality of our food in all the stores, Agustin also said. All kitchens have stations manned by specialists, such as the sushi, teppan, and ramen stations, the press release said.
SumoSam is unmistakably associated with Agustin, who owns the restaurant together with his business partners, Raymund Magdaluyo and Ricky Laudico, it also said.
With the opening of the SumoSam in Negros Occidental, the brand promises to continue to expand where there’s a growing demand for modern Japanese cuisine, with relaxed atmosphere, friendly service and great value for money, the press release said.*
