A Sushi Izu outlet in Newstead, Brisbane recently purchased an ASM835E rice sheeter from Sushi Machine .
A joint project between Woolworths Supermarket and AFC Sushi International, Sushi Izu has made fast progress opening around 80 stores in Australia within a short time.
The Newstead Sushi Izu franchisee Steve Chan had the rice sheeter installed in November 2013. Very happy with his purchase, especially with the savings he is making in labour cost and productivity, he said he would recommend the ASM835 rice sheeter to any potential buyer due to the consistency of the rice sheets and speed of rice sheet production.
Prior to the purchase, Steve met with Melvin Wee (Director) of Sushi Machines Australia at the Fine Food Australia Exhibition in Sydney and then went to the Sushi Izu store at Sydney Townhall Woolworths. He had a chat with the operators there and was satisfied with the feedback.
Currently, there are about 10 ASM835 rice sheeters being used by various Sushi Izu stores across Australia.
