      Breaking Into the Asian Restaurant Franchise Sweet Spot

      In the Asian franchise category, there is dynamic growth potential between sit-down restaurants and food courts. It’s an attractive market segment: fast casual dining continues to grow annually, and it’s expected to exceed $260 billion in 2021.

      It gets better: Asian food is the fastest-growing cuisine in the U.S. Americans continue to explore international flavors and focus on healthy options. The versatility of Asian-inspired menus put Sho Express at the right spot at the right time.

      Speaking of versatility, Sho Express gives customers lots of options, which broadens your base.

      • Fresh sushi is side-by-side with hibachi-style favorites and classic Asian dishes – something for everyone.
      • Customers can dine in, take out or drive through – something for every lifestyle and schedule.
