The story of Genki Sushi began with the vision of a 24-year-old Japanese sushi chef, Fumio Saito. Saito dreamed of creating a modern sushi restaurant with an unusual feature known as a ‘kaiten’ (literally translated as ‘revolving’). In December 1968, he created the concept of ‘kaiten sushi’ and pioneered the use of a revolving conveyor belt to serve sushi, combining serving traditional sushi with modern technology. In March 1995, the first Genki Sushi opened in Hong Kong. Today, Genki Sushi operates a total of 40 outlets in Hong Kong.
