Sakaya Kitchen is coming to a neighborhood near you!
Richard Hales, who is both chef and owner of Sakaya Kitchen, is planning to expand Sakaya Kitchen to 20 outlets across Florida. Sakaya Kitchen has locations in Midtown and Downtown and is planning to open in Pembroke Pines and Kendall.
Richard Hales told our friends over at Short Order:
“We’re going from an adolescent company to a mature company, and the only way we can be competitive and keep the standards where I envisioned them in 2009 is if I sort of adopt this franchise model even though we’re not franchising.”
Hales also told Short Order that he is also developing a new concept inspired by a trip to Tokyo and Seoul. He did not give too much details.
We could not be more happy for Sakaya Kitchen and Hales.
