Hissho Sushi

The Challenge

Hissho Sushi was looking to elevate its established grocery-store brand into the new age. They wanted their brand to exude premium, quality and fresh to consumers as they continued to grow in locations across the US. Hissho first engaged Yalo to support their food trade show presence with IDDBA. The relationship grew into an agency of record for 3+ years.

Our Approach

Yalo’s creative team rolled its love of sushi into the new experience they began building for Hissho. Establishing a hip, modern vibe, the creative direction and messaging always stayed true to the consumer target audience. With over 1600 locations, consistently branded assets and marketing communications was a steady climb that continued to evolve. From new business area concepts to signage and menus across locations, and a website built to scale, Yalo’s brand-marketing solution created a digital footpath for future growth.

Fresh Vibes

Hissho Sushi’s new logo development conveys fresh and quality with the use of bluefin blue and light salmon in the maki icon.

Capturing real photography of Hissho Sushi’s product menu keeps the focus on hand-rolled, chef-crafted sushi.

Brand Strategy

Rolling out the new logo across points of purchase including signage, menus, posters and digital displays captures the consumer’s attention.
