Rolling with the punches
The Sushi Restaurant industry took a couple of big blows during the recession, when per capita disposable income decreased and the unemployment rate jumped drastically. However, as sushi is largely a discretionary purchase, the industry will recover slowly as the incomes rise and spending habits reverse. On the other hand, rising seafood prices and increasing internal competition will hinder revenue and profit through 2017.
The industry is composed of restaurants primarily engaged in providing sushi-style foodstuffs to patrons who order and are served while seated (i.e. waiter or waitress service) or use conveyor belt-style delivery systems and pay after eating. These establishments may provide this type of food service to patrons in combination with selling alcoholic and other beverages.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
