Dear Friends and Valued Guests,

At Kura Sushi, the health and well-being of our guests and team members have always been our highest priority. In light of the ongoing situation with COVID-19 and the recommendations of local, state, and federal health authorities, we are temporarily closing all of our stores. This was a difficult decision for us, but we feel that this was the best way for us to serve our guests, team members, and communities under the current circumstances. 

We are following the recommendations of local health authorities in terms of how long restaurants need to be closed in different regions:

We will continue to update you as we learn new information, and we can’t wait to serve you again soon.

Dear Friends and Valued Guests,

We at Kura Sushi have always placed the health, safety, and well-being of our guests and our team members as our top priority. We have always prided ourselves on our rigorous, technology-driven food safety measures which include:

  • Our patented “Mr. Fresh” domes, designed to protect each plate on the belt, and
  • Our robotic arms in the kitchen that automatically dispose plates that do not satisfy our freshness standards, which are higher than those required by health department regulations. Each plate is timed and monitored by RFID tags.

In addition, to help ensure that we are doing everything possible to protect the health and welfare of our guests and our employees, we have implemented the following:

  • We have increased the frequency of our cleaning and sanitization procedures and have confirmed that our disinfectants are EPA-approved for effectiveness against COVID-19, and
  • We have developed Coronavirus education for our team members to reemphasize existing protocols and incorporate new best practices for food safety and personal health, and
  • We have established an emergency catastrophe leave fund for employees. The well-being of our team members includes financial security, especially in these uncertain times.

We understand that this is a fluid situation, and are closely monitoring governmental and health authority recommendations to make sure that our health and safety procedures are as rigorous as possible. Over the last several days, some local governments have issued notices that all residents must stay home or that all restaurants must close. In compliance with these announcements, we have temporarily closed the following restaurants.


The following restaurants will remain open, but will temporarily serve food only through the express belt in order to streamline kitchen operations and provide a better experience for our guests.
