Hissho Sushi Wins Multiple Awards for Entrepreneurial Success


CHARLOTTE, NC
Friday, April 22nd, 2016

In recognition of the company’s leadership resilience and growth, Hissho Sushi is on a roll with two different recognitions recently awarded to the company, both on a regional and national scale.

Most recently, Hissho accepted an award from Smart CEO as part of its Future 50 awards. This distinguishment recognized the company as one of the region’s fastest-growing mid-sized companies.

Based on a three-year average of both employee and revenue growth, Smart CEO’s Future 50 award marks Hissho as a leader in entrepreneurial success and impactful business for Charlotte’s economy. The region’s combined revenue of Smart CEO’s Future 50 is $1.5 billion, with an average business tenure of 13 years and almost 11,000 employment opportunities.

Hissho said that it was proud to accept the award on April 21 at a rock and roll themed ceremony at the Hilton Center City Hotel in Charlotte.

Additionally, Hissho Sushi was recently named as a Fast 100 Winner by the U.S. Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce, again demonstrating the company’s contribution to its surrounding and national communities in its growth and performance.

“Together the Fast 100 generated annual revenue of $3 billion, despite the global economic challenges. The country values Hissho’s contributions to the economic vitality of American life,” said the Chamber of Commerce in a press release.

Hissho Sushi operates as a sushi and hot bar franchise with over 875 locations in 39 states, plus the District of Columbia. Hissho’s CEO, Philip Maung, opened his first location in 1998 after moving to the U.S. a decade earlier from Myanmar with only $13.

Congratulations to the company on its achievements, and continue to count on DeliMarket News for economic and award updates in the industry.
