Japan’s biggest sushi chain is expected to open a second location in Los Angeles this month.
The company, founded in 2004, has a strong relationship with the city, and is a longtime supporter of the region.
Sushi King’s first location opened in 2012, and the chain’s second location opened earlier this year.
In the past few months, rumors have been swirling that the company might be moving its current site in West Hollywood to the heart of Los Angeles, or moving its headquarters from Tokyo to Los Angeles.
The news came from The Hollywood Reporter, which said the Los Angeles Times had learned the news from a source familiar with the matter.
SushiKing’s second Los Angeles location is set to open in late June, the Los Angles Times said.
It is unclear if the restaurant will be named after its hometown, the city of Osaka.
A new location will be a bit bigger than the first, with a bigger sushi bar, and will have better sushi and a larger selection of local dishes.
