YO! Sushi sees LFL sales growth of over 6.5%

Mayfair Equity Partners-owned YO! Sushi has reported consistent like-for-like sales growth of more than 6.5% since the end of its financial year.

The UK-based company, which was founded in 1997 and has 90+ sites, with over 70 in the UK, saw turnover for the year to 27 November 2016 grow 6% to £88.4m, while EBITDA for the year came in at £10.8m.

YO! specialises in delivering Japanese street food and sushi to guests via a 'kaiten' conveyor belt. Every day, dishes are hand crafted by chefs, made from the freshest ingredients, with impeccable sustainability credentials via small plates which are price/coloured coded.

The range is wide with from sashimi, using impeccably sourced salmon, tuna, albacore and cod to a wide range of sushi. YO! has a wide selection of vegetarian and vegan dishes (PETA Award for Best Vegan Dish 2016).

Classic Japanese street food includes Takoyaki (deep fried octopus balls), Yakisoba and of course the number one best seller, Chicken Katsu Curry.
