MTY Food Group Inc. has agreed to the purchase of sushi chain Yuzu Sushi, the latest in a series of acquisitions for the Canadian operator.
Operating mainly in Quebec, the sushi chain has 68 restaurant franchises, and will retain its head office in Quebec City.
Steve Morency and Frédéric Matte, the current owners of the chain, will also remain at the helm of the Yuzu Sushi once the takeover is complete.
MTY already own two other sushi chains, Sushi Go and Sushi Man and the latest acquisition comes hot on the heels of its purchase of Papa Murphy’s in April.
