Sushi outlet Kaizen will open in Southport Market in July


Chefs Keith Taylor and James Prescott are opening a new sushi outlet in Southport Market this summer and are looking to recruit staff.

Both are looking forward to opening Kaizen. It has attracted a growing number of followers since its successful opening at Cedar Farm in Mawdesley, West Lancashire, last year.

They are currently advertising for full and part-time staff, and are inviting people to join them for an open day on Wednesday, June 15. Kaizen will open in the unit between Pasta 51 Express, which opened earlier this year, and Allotment.

Keith said: “We are due to open in Southport market on July 6. We will be serving hot and cold sushi, skewers and other small plates. And we are holding an open day at the market on Wednesday, 15th June 2022 looking for full and part-time staff.

“James and are two chefs who met whilst working on the Formula 1 racing, catering for the team and guests. We have both worked at high levels in kitchens ranging from rosette restaurants to outside catering.

We have been trading at Cedar Farm for almost a year. We set up a food delivery company through lockdown and did street food pop ups. From that we got an opportunity to open permanently at Cedar Farms new food market, which has been well received.

“We have been looking for additional sites and when Southport came up we jumped at the chance. We feel that Southport on the whole is ready for some new sushi ideas and Southport Market is a great place to deliver that.”

Keith also revealed the story behind the venture’s name. He added: “We picked the name Kaizen because it’s a Japanese business proverb to ‘continually improve’ which we thought was fitting.”
