Kura Revolving Sushi Bar will soon join 99 Ranch Market, a Taiwanese-American Supermarket chain based in Buenda Park, CA, in the newly renovated shopping center on the northeast corner of Chandler and Dobson in Chandler.
What Now Phoenix spoke with Lauren Murakami, the restaurant’s Public Relations & Marketing Specialist, and she said the restaurant is expected to be up and running in the 3,181 sq ft. space right inside the planned 99 Ranch Market by the end of 2021.
It seems that Kura Revolving Sushi Bar is doing very well. What Now Los Angeles, covering the opening of a location in Sherman Oaks, CA recently reported, “The parent company, Kura Corporation, first opened up shop in 1977 and has franchised over 450 locations in Japan, Taiwan, and the United States. What sets Kura Sushi aside from most sushi joints is that it was one of the original revolving sushi concepts — where dishes are set on a rotating conveyor belt.”
The “Kura Experience,” as Kura insiders like to call it, offers “over 140 authentic Japanese dishes made with fresh, high-quality ingredients free of artificial sweeteners, seasonings, preservatives and colorings,” according to Murakami. The restaurant will have two conveyor belts. One has plate-tracking technology that monitors how long an item has been in circulation. Murakami says this ensures “your food is always fresh and delicious from conveyor belt to table.” The second belt, called the “sushi highway” or the Express Belt, will ferry guests’ orders directly from the kitchen to your table.
“The quality of our food is of the utmost importance,” Murakami added. At Kura Revolving Sushi Bar you can expect to indulge in dashi, or broth, made fresh every day, as well as wasabi imported from Japan and made especially for Kura.
Dining room plans for the Chandler location involve seats at the bar, as well as booth seating throughout the restaurant.
After a trip to the market, who wouldn’t want to try that Kura Experience?
