Like most immigrants, I, Jeongsoo(Jason) Kim, immigrated
to Canada with hopes and dreams in 1996 at the age
of 41. I started work in the marine industry as I
did in South Korea since my graduation from Maritime
University located on an island (as shown in the picture
above, major of Navigating engineer.). I was in the
navy, navigator, boat dealer and manufacturer designing
a multi-use boat which converted into a car top box
in Richmond, BC.
In 1975, we visited the traditional village in Hawaii,
US on the training ship. (I am in the middle)
I moved to Windsor, ON, for sales with Michigan and
my business seemed to do well until the September
11 incident. In 2003, I closed my business due to
the hardship that my family and I were going through.
After the closing of my business, I decided to start
a business where I didn't have to seek for customers
but to start something of what customers wanted.
After many conversations with my wife, we decided
to open a restaurant. Since sushi was a normal lunch
item throughout our lives, it wasn't necessary for
us to learn how to make it, and instead, we developed
a more professional look and taste beyond the standardized
We began our first sushi take-out restaurant in Belle
River, January 2005 with a low income. All my 3 talented
children, my wife, and I put our every effort to each
customer which at that time was only a few people
a day! However, little by little, the restaurant started
to grow and in no time, I was expanding the space
adjacent and a year later, I opened a dine-in with
25 seats around the rotating boat system that embodies
my concept and style. It was a success from the beginning
with our sales average drastically increasing in the
small town of Belle River.
To maintain a strong position within the sushi market,
I introduced the rotating sushi boat system as well
as launching an online ordering system in 2006. Our
success led us to the opening of Windsor's Quick Sushi
in January 2008 with the " L " type waterway instead
of the " O " type. The result of having this system
and online ordering makes it possible for this restaurant
to be operated with only 2 or 3 people.
Our goal for Quick Sushi is not simply becoming
a leader in the healthy fast food and casual
dining restaurant but to have a part in the
fine-dining segment as well. My future plan
is to franchise Quick Sushi across Canada and
US, then all over the world.
My Motto: Customer Satisfaction!
1. Satisfy the customer by providing high-quality
sushi and seafood
2. Satisfy the customer by distributing healthy
3. Satisfy the customer by delivering prompt
and professional service
4. Satisfy the customer by offering choices
in our vast menu selection
5. Satisfy the customer by presenting reasonable
6. Satisfy the customer by having a clean restaurant
7. Satisfy the customer by showing a boating
8. Satisfy the customer by creating an easy
take-out system i.e. online ordering & Drive-thru
Key of Quick Sushi's Success
I can list many key reasons to Quick Sushi's
success but the most important is due to my
employees and my family. I have been extremely
blessed for having a solid, united family.
My wife, my two daughters, my son, and I are
the employees, employers, and owners. My wife,
Sookhee Kim, who was teaching physical education
in Dongduck University in S.Korea, is now master
chef. She taught all my children how to make
sushi professionally. Especially my first daughter
Eileen who is currently studying science at
Western University to become a doctor upgraded
our sushi after her one year experience at a
famous sushi restaurant in Vancouver, BC in
My second daughter Janet and my son David
are awesome chefs. Janet is studying sociology
and criminology in U of Windsor and David is
Grad 12 in Vicent Messy High and will go to
RMC (Royal Military College).
I am in charge of the infra-structure, i.e.
building/maintenance/internet, and deep frying
Tempra, one more important job-dish washing.
Restaurant is a people business and in order
to satisfy the customers, a solid team is needed,
which I am blessed to have.
Customers experience the oriental ambience
of Japanese Sushi, Korean Posukjong (artificial
waterway) and Chinese Dimsum all in one visit
to Quick Sushi.
Have a great day and hope to see you soon.
