How sushi culture became so popular in United States?
In 1960’s, many Japanese sushi entrepreneurs came to the United States for the purpose of achieving their American dreams. Despite the differences in the two identical cultures, the first sushi boom came around in Los Angeles in 1970’s, when one of the challenging sushi chefs created a new style of sushi roll, “California roll”, for the people who were not accustomed with eating sushi, especially raw fish and seaweed. Unlike the traditional sushi, cooked seafood was used instead of raw fish, and seaweed was hidden inside of sushi rolls.
Today, there are more varieties of sushi rolls in the United States than there are in Japan. American people who are accustomed with eating those new style sushi rolls usually take the next step to try the real sushi which contains raw seafood. As a result of the remarkable changes challenged by those sushi entrepreneurs, Japanese sushi culture successfully penetrated into the American culture. Being recognized as a healthy and fancy food, sushi became one of the most popular foods, which people can purchase at the major supermarkets and convenience stores.
The first sushi machine was born in Japan in 1980’s. Although many thought that sushi should have been made by hands like a traditional way, when Kaiten sushi became popular, Kaiten sushi restaurant owners started using the sushi machine as one of the essential equipments for their business.
At that time, AUTEC was producing “Home-Use Nigiri Maker”, but when Kaiten sushi became more and more popular, AUTEC started producing commercial sushi machines. Today, commercial sushi machines are used not only at Kaiten sushi restaurants, but also for department stores, supermarkets, schools and so on. The usage of sushi machine has been increasing every year.

Are you having a hard time stabilizing the quality?
When people make sushi, the size of sushi and quality will be different because of the size of their hands or the skills. When one out of ten sushi is made perfectly, if other nine sushi are bad, okay, or good, overall quality will not be judged as good quality. Customers who expect the same quality all the time do not satisfy if every time the quality of sushi is different.
