About You Me Sushi
Since opening its first sushi takeaway store in London’s Marylebone district in 2008, You Me Sushi has been delighting London with its innovative take on Japanese cuisine. A second site opened shortly after the first in London Westfield in 2010, and today the brand operates in 18 sites across the capital.
You Me Sushi is now planning to share its innovative menu in an expansion across the UK, with plans to grow to 35 sites by the end of 2023 and then to double that estate again going forward.
The You Me Sushi menu offers a beautiful variety of healthy, fresh choices including a diverse range of You Me Sushi boxes, hot katsu and teriyaki dishes, poke bowls, and an impressive selection of vegan options. Considering that the target demographic is becoming increasingly conscious of healthy eating, and with the ever-growing popularity of clean-eating, raw, and plant-based diets, it is no wonder that the demand for You Me Sushi’s wonderful cuisine has only continued to grow.
Sushi in particular has seen an extraordinary surge in popularity across the UK and has now become the fourth largest ‘food to go’ product.
How does the You Me Sushi franchise model work?
You Me Sushi is primarily a delivery business also offering collection and limited eat in. Not being entirely reliant on sit-down or takeaway customers, You Me Sushi can achieve high street level sales even from secondary locations, given the currently increasing demand for home deliveries and catering. With this combination, some sites have been known to reach sales of up to £40,000 per week. Currently, 65 per cent of the brand’s business comes from delivery sales, supported by its very own delivery infrastructure.
As the brand uses its own You Me Sushi delivery app and website for customer ordering and reliable drivers, tighter control can be maintained over perfect product quality, and profit margins are higher due to reduced reliance on third party aggregator sales than its competitors.
Who would make a great You Me Sushi franchisee?
The company is currently searching for positive, enthusiastic business operators, especially multi-unit franchisees, with experience in either food, hospitality, management, or marketing. Industry experience is desirable but not essential, as You Me Sushi offers comprehensive training.
Current franchisees are either existing franchise groups, former restaurant employees and even ex-accountants or other white-collar professions!
What training and support does You Me Sushi offer prospective franchisees?
Initial training introduces franchisees to the business system, providing the hands-on skills and knowledge base you need to begin trading in a professional and organised manner. An experienced You Me Sushi representative will work alongside franchisees on store-level marketing, staff training, and customer service. Ongoing support is available through training courses, menu development, and national marketing campaigns.
What is the minimum investment level required?
Minimum investment is approximately £75,000, with a total investment of around £155,000, depending on store size and location. Applications from multi-site, multi-brand franchise groups and individuals with broad backgrounds including food and hospitality, business management and marketing are welcomed. Delivery only models may be available for areas with low footfall, but strong demographics.
What locations or territories is You Me Sushi looking to operate in?
You Me Sushi is planning on opening 35 sites by the end of 2023 and then to double that estate again going forward. The primary interest is in expanding across the UK, particularly in secondary locations with excellent delivery prospects, but master franchisees may also be considered in Europe.
What are the franchise terms of agreement and renewal?
The franchise agreement grants the franchisee the right to operate a You Me Sushi business for an initial period of 10 years, which is then followed by a right of renewal for further 5 years.
Why is You Me Sushi a good investment?
Few franchises on the market have been trading successfully for 15 years like You Me Sushi - the concept has been tried and tested in a variety of formats and locations, both in London and regionally.
You Me Sushi is also an established franchisor that has an ample track-record of franchisee success. As a brand owner, the company has a stake in the franchisee’s positive result.
The brand provides training and ongoing support, simplified supply lines and an exclusive territory. You Me Sushi has already established a strong and dynamic business, with a proven model that can provide franchisees with the ability to return much higher than normal financial gains from their investment.
How in demand are the services or products that You Me Sushi provides?
You Me Sushi is the perfect brand for the current climate, with the growing culture of healthier, cleaner eating, a growing demand for efficient delivery, and affordable menu price points.
