Why How Do You Roll? Is So Special
When people are craving sushi - but have little time for a meal — what are their choices?
Grocery store pre-made sushi that may not be the freshest? YUCK!
Pre-packaged big box store offerings? BORING!
An expensive, time-consuming sit-down meal at an upscale sushi restaurant? OVERKILL!
How about FRESH maki rolls or rice/salad bowls, custom-made while they watch, using the freshest possible ingredients and with a variety of toppings and proprietary sauces they choose to create one-of-a-kind combinations?
Innovations rule at How Do You Roll?.
A special rice mixer prepares rice, our unique maki machine presses the rice into perfect squares ready for further preparation – including adding seaweed or soy wraps and the selected fillings, then the hand-rolling process – while a third machine cuts the long rolls into 8 precise pieces. This cutting-edge automation saves labor and assures optimal results every time! Quick preparation of the delicate ingredients assures the customer of the highest quality at the peak of freshness – and all for a very reasonable price, so people come back again and again.
