“ACE SUSHI is on an aggressive growth path set to capitalize on the U.S. consumer’s fondness for all things sushi,” claims ACE Sushi Franchise Corporation.
“We currently operate 350 sushi outlets in 38 states in supermarkets that include The Fresh Market, Stop N Shop, and Giant Supermarkets. Through our locations inside prestigious supermarkets, ACE offers top quality, affordable take-out and quick-serve sushi made fresh daily by our trained sushi chefs.
“Sushi consumption has doubled in the last 5 years and shows no sign of slowing down as healthy eating continues to become a lifestyle choice.
“ACE Sushi plans to double store sales…
“Because of our existing relationships with America’s top supermarket chains, we help franchisees source and secure prime locations.
“There are no build-out costs, no lease and minimal capital equipments costs with ACE.
“Our support does not end with initial training. We are partners with our franchisees from in-store set-up and staff recruitment, through adding additional locations.
“As one of the country’s leading suppliers of high quality take-out sushi, we keep our franchisees abreast of cutting edge sushi trends, recipes and marketing ideas they can use to increase sales and profitability.”

ACE SUSHI Franchise Complaints
At the beginning of 2009, there were 324 ACE Sushi franchises, and by the end of 2011 there 311 franchises, a net loss of just 13 franchises.
However, a closer look reveals that during that period, 601 new ACE Sushi franchises opened, 534 franchises were terminated, 11 didn’t renew, and 76 ceased operation for other reasons.
So out of 925 ACE Sushi franchises open some time between 2009-2011, 614 (66%) have exited the system.

Listen up People, “Sushi” business is getting sucks and not used to like before. No matter how you provide for AFC sushi
or ACE sushi, it is getting unfortunate. Difficult to find the right people to work for sushi-bar and percentage are getting low
too. Also, the people that affiliated with the company do not help you when you have a problems with the market. You are not really a contractor or own a franchise. They do not
watch your back, what ever problem come up you deal with the market, not them. Because the don’t want to get involved, due to the fact that they don’t want to loose their “sushi-Bar”. Instead, loosing you from the market. This business is not guaranteed or has no security for your life. It propably dissapear the next day and you got nothing left. becareful what you are doing people
I know how you feel. Not only ACE, AFC also Hissho, Sushi Avenue all same.
They are blood sucking Co.
So fer no one can help us just wait and suffer for survive.
