The Opportunity

Sho Express: An Asian Food Franchise with Flair

Right now, Asian food is getting ready to serve up something entirely new – an increasing presence in the fast-casual and quick serve categories. With the Asian segment weighted down by traditional buffet and full-service restaurants, the time is right for this cuisine to dominate fast-casual category.

Get To Know Sho

A shogun is a leader, and that’s what we aim to be. In 2014, the Sho Express vision took shape in St. Louis. Even back then, with a mission to serve up flavorful Japanese food fused with American influences, in a fun and friendly environment, we knew we were on to something.

Fast forward to today. With nine locations in three states under the Sho Express umbrella, a perfected and established concept, and a prime position at the intersection of some pretty incredible food trends, we’re ready to take our Sho on the road – the franchising road, that is, and we’re looking for confident, motivated leaders to join us.
