COMPANY HISTORY

Sugita Foods, Inc. started business as a supplier in Japanese Foods for Host International Inc., (Marriott) at San Francisco Int'l Airport in December, 1988. SANRAKU restaurant was founded in 1989, specializing in first class quality Japanese cuisine. In 1992 we added our upscale "Sanraku Four Seasons" next door, including a new Sushi bar. Our restaurant earned us a 31/2 star rating in all categories and a two page laudatory review in San Francisco Chronicle/Examiner weekend Restaurant Review. October 3, 1993. Continued success in 1994 allowed us to open another Japanese restaurant for the Marriott Corporation at San Francisco's downtown Crocker Galleria. Our business has been flourishing ever since, in 1995 we opened an additional restaurant (Marriott) named "Sanraku Express" at San Francisco Airport's domestic terminal. In the meantime, our original Marriott owned restaurant in the International terminal was moved and enlarged in 1994 under the name "Pacific Rim". In the spring of 1999, we opened another Sanraku restaurant and Sushi bar in the new Sony Metreon Entertainment Building near Moscone Center. Our company policy is to continue to serve the highest quality Japanese Food available, consisting only of fresh and quality ingredients. We train our staff to be efficient and courteous in order to guarantee our esteemed customers the best of service. We strive to be Japan's best ambassadors of its culinary arts and culture.

Japanese food is the culmination of a long culinary tradition resulting in a refined cuisine that has from time to time incorporated the best from dishes around the world, to create a unique and increasingly popular choice of savory and healthy delicacies.
