POWER LIST 2018, CHAIN CHAMPIONS: Mike Lewis, Group Executive Chef, YO! Sushi

YO! Sushi

With close to 100 stores to its name in the UK, YO! Sushi has become an entrenched fixture on the British high street over the past two decades.

Although sushi is at the heart of what the chain does, it boasts a compelling range of street food, from traditional classics to innovative fusion dishes, designed by executive chef Mike Lewis and his team. 

One thing that all its food has in common is that it is fresh, with all dishes served the day they are made and most prepared right in front of customers in the company’s open kitchens.

Mike plays a key part in ensuring chefs are working in the best environment possible.

“My role is to ensure that all our kitchens are fit for purpose, ensuring that the ergonomics are perfect for quick and efficient service and the equipment chosen is the best for the operation, as well as sourcing the latest equipment innovation. As our kitchens are all open and in full view we also need to ensure that they look great as well as being practical.”

International launches in New York, Sydney and Paris have benefitted from Mike’s expertise in kitchen and bespoke menu design, while he has led a massive menu development programme domestically.
