History
Today, Sho Express is a new name for a group of restaurants coming together to form a family of Asian food franchises. Sho Express specializes in sushi and hibachi-style cuisine, but in the comfortable setting of a neighborhood diner. At Sho Express, fast-casual meets takeout meets Asian-inspired favorites. Back in 2014, we opened our doors with a mission to serve up flavorful Japanese food fused with American influences. And we did it in a modern and casual environment where people could stop for a quick bite, linger if they wanted, or drive through to accommodate their busy lifestyle.

Now with 9 locations in 3 states under the Sho Express umbrella, we offer franchise owners a perfected, established concept backed by marked-tested strategies and increasing customer demand. We’re excited to take our Sho on the road with new franchise owners who share our philosophy and vision!
