It’s always interesting to learn about the different types of businesses based here in Charlotte. This is one of those “wow, who knew” moments for me. This company manages and supplies several sushi outlets around the country including several grocery stores chains.

"Philip Maung is a small business owner and founder of Hissho Sushi, a 200-employee company headquartered in southwest Charlotte that trains sushi chefs and distributes ingredients for the food across the country. The company was founded 13 years ago. The company has grown consistently in the past decade, including a 62 percent increase in revenues last year. Philip Maung arrived in America with just $13 in his pocket and a dream of making a new life. He pursued the emerging supermarket sushi industry and spent years learning every facet of the sushi business. In 1998, Philip and his wife Kristina pooled their finances to form Hissho Sushi and founded the company in the family dining room. The company began providing fresh sushi daily to supermarkets and cafes. Today, Hissho Sushi is a dynamic foodservice and distribution company managing and operating more than 400 sushi bars across the U.S. Their 46,000 square foot, state-of-the-art headquarters are located in Charlotte, NC."

LMAO!!! I didn't think of that. Perhaps that does explain it. Charlotte certainly seems to have a glut of sushi places, especially considering how small this city is.
