Gekko Sushi (Midtown Atlanta)
The Gekko sushi restaurant (midtown Atlanta) opened by 11/2010, we took over by 11/2013, and closed by 08/2017.
We tried to tell all our customer that how difficult for us to make this desicion. The reason is there are too many competitions around us, just in 2016 and 2017, there were more than 10 sushi restaurants opened in 3 miles, also we are too close to ponce market, when they opened first month, our sales dropped almost 20%... other reason, like lack of parking (we told the owner milliion times), no cable for that property, and high rent...
Anyway, if the the front door is closed, the god will keep the windows open, we believe the food trucks could help us, since we got our first food truck in 11/2016, now we have 2 trucks already, in future, we hope we could have other trucks that serve not just sushi hibachi, maybe burger, taco, thai, or noodle and more. Sooner, when people talk about "GEKKO" we are not just a sushi, we are a group! we have a dream, everyday we are fighting for making that dream to comes true!
My family and I, we want to apologize for all the inconvience and really really appreicate for all your support for last 4 years! We will definitely see you soon!
