Maki Fresh will open two new restaurants in Tuscaloosa and Huntsville, marking the fifth and sixth Maki Fresh locations.
Celebrating five years of business, Maki Fresh is opening the restaurants as part of its plan to grow and expand. When opened, these two new restaurants will continue to provide quality products and unparalleled service that the company’s customers have come to expect.
Founded by John Cassimus, creator of Zoës Kitchen and Jinsei Sushi, Maki Fresh provides a wholesome alternative for customers wanting quality, Asian-inspired fare and sushi on the go.
“We are excited to broaden our horizons and grow to other parts of the state,” Cassimus said. “We look forward to expanding our customer base and offering our unique experience to new communities.”
The menu at Maki Fresh is designed to delight a wide variety of customers, from selective eaters to those that have a strong affinity for sushi. Traditional fresh ingredients with Asian inspiration complete the menu with a selection of sushi rolls, rice bowls, sliders and salads.
Both locations will offer Maki Fresh’s catering services. Maki Fresh catering is designed to provide customers with a unique experience unlike typical catering services. Maki Fresh’s slider and sushi trays, build your own rice bowls and sushi rolling stations are perfect for business or personal events.
Local real estate agent Eric Rogers with Progressive Properties represented Maki Fresh in each lease.
Located at 1530 McFarland Blvd N in the Indian Hills area, the Tuscaloosa restaurant will serve the city’s unique college atmosphere.
“Many of our team members went to school in Tuscaloosa,” Cassimus said. “We know the market, we know what college students want but also appreciate the diverse group of customers that exist outside of campus. We are looking forward to returning to the city with our product and service.”
The Huntsville restaurant will be located at the intersection of Memorial Parkway and Bob Wallace Ave in the new Shops at Merchant Walk. The shopping center is expected to be completed by late 2015 and will also feature Huntsville’s first Whole Foods Market.
“Huntsville has really been a center for economic development and innovation for the state for a number of years now,” Cassimus said. “By bringing in companies like Whole Foods and Maki Fresh, the city is catering to a group of young professionals looking for both fresh, healthy options and a welcoming atmosphere. I’m excited to be a part of this growth.”
