Sticks'n'Sushi to make UK debut next month
Denmark-based Asian restaurant chain Sticks'n'Sushi is to make its debut in the UK next month.
The company, one of the fastest-growing restaurant groups in Denmark, is to open a site at 58 Wimbledon Hill Road in London.
It currently has nine restaurants in Copenhagen and employs more than 450 people.
The chain's arrival in the UK is thought to be part of a wider international expansion plan. It is understood it is looking at a number of other UK and overseas sites.
Sticks'n'Sushi's UK launch is being overseen by Andreas Karlsson, its operations director.
The chain was founded by Thor Andersen and brothers Kim and Jens Rahbek in 1994.
The concept takes its inspiration from two Japanese culinary traditions, sushi and yakitori, or skewered food.
According to its website, the chain has a 'no moaning' policy for its staff.
"We do not want to listen to griping or grumbling in our shared workplace. A bad tone is nothing else than a bad habit," it reads.
"Even if you are the chef, house manager or director you are not exempted. It sounds slightly like mother, but she meant well. So we continue her good work – and speak decently."
