Kura Sushi USA, a technology-enabled Japanese restaurant concept with 24 units, has tapped
CrunchTimeRestaurant's Food & Labor Operations Platform to help it scale across America.
"With our aggressive growth plans, Kura Sushi needs reliable control of its two biggest cost centers, food inventory and restaurant labor," Jung Lee, director of purchasing at Kura Sushi USA, said in the release. "With its deep domain expertise in back-of-house restaurant management challenges, CrunchTime is the perfect partner for us as we continue to add new locations throughout the United States."
With CrunchTime deployed, the brand can access core business data for trend analysis and to inform plans on how to drive sales, improve forecast accuracy, optimize food safety procedures and eliminate wasteful spending, according to the release. Individual restaurant managers may access CrunchTime's online dashboards and reports, compare actual to theoretical food costs and identify the root cause of any food cost variances. With each restaurant responsible for its own food cost and inventory management, Kura can reduce company-wide food costs and increase profitability, Bill Bellissimo, founder and president of CrunchTime, said in the release.
"With its recent IPO and aggressive plans to open new restaurants across America, Kura Sushi USA recognizes that the CrunchTime platform can be a key tool in its quest to scale their innovative brand," he said. "CrunchTime will help Kura Sushi USA control its costs, streamline food operational efficiencies, and meet their investor demands as it rolls out new restaurants."
Kura Sushi USA, a subsidiary of Kura Sushi Inc., a Japan-based revolving sushi chain with over 400 restaurants, serves cuisine through a tech-enabled revolving sushi service model. Guests select from a small plates menu featuring over 140 freshly prepared items rooted in Kura Sushi's philosophy of using old-world techniques and ingredients that are free from artificial seasonings, sweeteners, colorings and preservatives.
