AO Sushi Opens in Buffalo Grove
A sushi restaurant founded in Wilmette has brought its concept to Buffalo Grove, and held its grand opening there March 10.
Buffalo Grove's AO Sushi restaurant is the first expansion for a brand begun in Wilmette and originally named the Sea Ranch.
Charles Cook, the general manager of the Buffalo Grove site, said the new location and new name are both part of a larger plan: setting up even more locations, possibly out of state.
"We're beginning a chain, if you will," Cook said. "We want to put together a concept that can be marketed in other areas. But, you have to have a starting point."
