Restaurant owner Kobe restaurant is hoping to win back its customers after the country’s largest chain closed its doors for good last year.
The company is in talks with restaurants and chefs in China to open a new branch of the restaurant chain that opened in 2016.
The restaurant chain is one of several chains struggling to keep its doors open, with restaurants in the United States and Europe closing in droves.
Kobe restaurants in China are mostly owned by local and foreign companies, which often have higher prices than in the U.S. or Europe.
That means many customers are turning to cheaper Chinese food, such as bao bao, to tide them over.
In addition to sushi, the chain has a selection of other Chinese fare, including fried rice, stir-fried tofu and noodles, which are often served with a spicy sauce.
Kamezawa is hoping that with its Chinese cuisine, it can bring in a new crowd.

David Cooper/The Globe and Mail) (CBC)”We’ve been very active in China.
We’ve been selling sushi, but we’ve also been exporting food products,” said Kamezo’s executive chef, Shiho Kobayashi.
“We’re working with the restaurant owners to bring in new people.
We want to create a restaurant chain of the future.”
Shihosaki said Kobe is hoping it can attract people from the Chinese community who are not interested in sushi.
The chain opened in Japan in 2001 and in 2016 it expanded to China.
Shihoesaki said it plans to open its first restaurant in China in 2020.
The new branch will be located in Shanghai.
Shikoku-based sushi restaurant Hakusaku’s is hoping for the same success.
“I’m optimistic because we have a lot of Chinese customers.
We have many customers who like the Japanese cuisine, like sushi, and we want to bring the Chinese culture back to Japan,” said Hakusaki.
“But at the same time we need to have a good sushi experience, so that’s what we’ll do.”
(CBC News) Hakusaku opened in the Japanese restaurant business in 2011, but it has struggled to attract customers.
It has opened three locations in China, but is now only in Shanghai and is currently operating in two other cities.
Hakusakus CEO Kazuo Fukuda said he believes Kobe will be able to bring a new demographic to the company.
“Our goal is to bring customers to Kobe as well,” Fukuda told CBC News.
“The new Kobe location will be more convenient than the old one.”
Fukuda says he expects to have the new restaurant opened in 2020, with the first opening in 2022.
Fukuda added that the new branch in Shanghai will offer customers a variety of cuisines.
“It will also be open to Chinese and Chinese-American guests, who are a big part of the Kobe business,” he said.
Kefu, a sushi restaurant in Beijing, opened in 2005 and is one step away from becoming Kobe’s biggest overseas restaurant.
The Chinese company hopes to open more restaurants in Canada.
“China is the market where we are looking for the best restaurants,” said a spokesperson for the company, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
(CBC/CBC News ) Kefuzas sushi chef, Yuji Yoshida, is optimistic about the future of the company in Canada, especially considering the opening of new restaurants in cities such as Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto.
He said he expects Kobe to remain in China for the foreseeable future.
“I’m really optimistic because it’s a big country, and I think they are very enthusiastic,” Yoshida said.
“They are also looking for opportunities to develop their business.”
Yuji said that Kobe opened in China when it was just a sushi bar and now it has over 2,000 restaurants and offers a wide range of sushi and other food products.
Yuji believes K-Restaurants in China will be successful.
(Kobe/Twitter)”I think Kobe can do well because the Chinese people are really enthusiastic about food,” Yuji added.
“For example, I think that K-restaurants are the future for food in China.”
Kobe also opened a restaurant in India, which is the largest market for the Japanese chain.
K-Bar, a popular Indian restaurant in New Delhi, has attracted more than 200,000 people.
In 2017, the restaurant also opened its first K-Mart in India.
Kobo, which has been in China since 1997, is hoping its new presence in Canada will bring more Chinese customers and help its business.
