What makes Bento Sushi better than the rest?
Bento Sushi got its start in 1996 in downtown Toronto as a small takeout shop offering sushi, bento boxes and other ready-to-eat foods. A rapid expansion followed and continues to this day, transforming Bento Sushi into the largest sushi company in Canada with over 450 locations spread across all ten provinces and several states in the United States. At present, Bento Sushi employs over 1,400 highly trained sushi chefs and serves more than 15 million sushi portions every year. Always looking to better serve customers, Bento Sushi has recently launched the Bento Kitchen concept in select locations – a whole new product line focusing on traditional Japanese entrées such as bento boxes, yaki udon stir-frys, donburi rice bowls and ramen and udon noodle dishes made hot and fresh to order.
Hi, I'm John Hashimoto, a Canadian born Japanese. My earliest and fondest memories all revolve around food: helping with the backyard garden where we grew almost everything and anything, and cooking with my mom at a very early age – helping her measure out recipes and mixing cake batters, and getting to lick the icing bowl afterwards!
As a leader in innovation, Bento Sushi created the Sushi Champion competition – a company-wide contest held annually that aims to highlight the tremendous talent and creativity of our very own Bento Chefs.
