      Bringing Together the Best in the Japanese Franchise Business

      Today, Sho Express is a new name for a group of restaurants coming together to form a family of Asian food franchises. Sho Express specializes in sushi and hibachi-style cuisine, but in the comfortable setting of a neighborhood diner. At Sho Express, fast-casual meets takeout meets Asian-inspired favorites.

      Back in 2014, we opened our doors with a mission to serve up flavorful Japanese food fused with American influences. And we did it in a modern and casual environment where people could stop for a quick bite, linger if they wanted, or drive through to accommodate their busy lifestyle.

      Now with nine locations in three states under the Sho Express umbrella, we offer franchise owners a perfected, established concept backed by marked-tested strategies and increasing customer demand. We’re excited to take our Sho on the road with new franchise owners who share our philosophy and vision!


      What Makes Sho Express Special

      Every day, Sho Express Asian restaurant franchises offer a full menu of flavorful items that bring together Japanese fare and American influences. That fusion is the foundation of our personality – along with high-quality ingredients and fast, friendly service.
