As part of your pre-opening support, we provide on-boarding and training support to prepare you for opening:

  1. You and your Sushi Chef will be invited to join us for 3 weeks in Hamburg, NY (greater Buffalo, NY area). We cover our customer service standards, daily operations, POS and management tools (technology, financial, marketing), and how to prep and prepare menu items based on over 20 years of experience owning and operating sushi restaurants.
  2. Onsite support in your Lime House Sushi and Ramen restaurant– make sure you are ready for a soft opening and your staff have been trained on our procedures and operational standards.
  3. Ongoing guidance to develop, grow and become an active part of your local community.
