Express sushi set to open in Maui Mall

Genki Sushi at the Maui Mall will reopen Dec. 2 with a new double-rail sushi delivery system, Genki Sushi USA announced this week.

The restaurant, the largest in the chain at 3,344 square feet, closed in July as part of a $2.2 million renovation project.

A total of 110 restaurant seats will be serviced by the system, which includes ordering by touch screen. The double-rail high-tech service will deliver each sushi order by Bullet Train or F-1 Race Cars.

“Genki Sushi USA Inc. is honored to bring our innovative technological sushi double-rail system to Maui at our beautiful newly renovated Maui Mall restaurant,” said Mary E. Hansen, chief administrative officer Genki Sushi USA. “We are committed to improving the quality of everything we do, from the speed in which we deliver our food, the taste of our sushi and the freshness of the produce we use, to the level of service and the atmosphere in our restaurants.”

There are 14 Genki Sushi restaurants in Hawaii with two on Maui, the second being in Lahaina. The restaurant will be open 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday to Thursday and 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
