This is part of a year-long ‘Love for Local’ series called NB365: portraits of New Brunswick entrepreneurs, businesses and organizations. Huddle is a media partner with Love for Local. Today, we hear from Ted Park of Kuro Sushi in Shediac.
THERE WERE NO JAPANESE AND KOREAN RESTAURANTS IN SHEDIAC SO I DECIDED TO OPEN ONE FOR THE COMMUNITY. BUSINESS IS GOOD, AND THE SUPPORT OF THE COMMUNITY HAS BEEN WONDERFUL. WE TRULY APPRECIATE ALL THE GOOD COMMENTS, KIND WORDS, AND OVERALL FEELING THAT OUR RESTAURANT IS HERE TO STAY THANKS TO OUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS.
Over the past several months, we ourselves realized we could do lots to support local, so we now only deal with local suppliers such as the Moncton Fish Market. We want choice, freshness, and quality when it comes to our ingredients, and local ticks all the boxes.
Supporting local businesses has a real impact because we feel the love from our customers. They supported us in many ways and they keep doing so every day, and we are immensely thankful.
