Original, American-style sushi restaurant signs franchise deal to develop 25 locations in the Centennial State, with the first slated to open in Colorado Springs
Colorado Springs, CO (RestaurantNews.com) Rock N Roll Sushi is preparing to deliver sensational, original dining experiences that fans throughout Colorado will want to replay again and again with the execution of its latest franchise deal.
Rock N Roll Sushi CEO Chris Kramolis announced today that the company signed an area development agreement with Kyle Gerstner, CEO and Owner of KMG, LLC, to share its passions for American sushi and American rock & roll with guests in the Rocky Mountain region. Gerstner signed on to open 25 locations throughout the Centennial State, with the first expected to debut in Colorado Springs in early 2023. The new restaurant will feature a dedicated to-go service area and window for guests to quickly order and conveniently grab Rock N Roll Sushi’s greatest hits on the go.
“We’re beyond excited to partner with Kyle to open our first Colorado location and grow our footprint within this great state,” Kramolis said. “Kyle’s an experienced operator who’s adaptable and has succeeded as an entrepreneur for over a decade. And with Rock N Roll Sushi continuing to break out across the west at a record pace, there’s no better place than the chill vibe of Colorado to embrace our one-of-a-kind dining experience featuring sushi amplified.”
Born and raised in Wichita, Kansas, Gerstner moved to Colorado Springs in 2012 to open a Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers. He now lives in Ponte Vedra, Florida and operates eight Freddy’s locations – five in Colorado Springs and three in Jacksonville – with three more under development.
“I’m thrilled to add Rock N Roll Sushi to my franchise portfolio,” Gerstner said. “The brand has a loud look and feel and a super-energetic environment, coupled with amazing sushi that my family and I love. Plus, it’s a young brand that offers an opportunity to be part of an exciting, fast-growing concept. We look forward to working with their team to bring Rock N Roll Sushi’s signature menu items to fans across the Centennial State.”
