Simon Woodroffe opened YO! Sushi in Poland Street, Soho in January 1997 with his life savings of £200,000. Within a week he had a queue down the block and he never looked back.
Although Simon is no longer directly involved in the running of the business having sold the last of his stake in 2008, he now spends his time using his story to inspire thousands of entrepreneurs and business owners. Simon regularly speaks at events across the world, and is passionate about personal development and helping entrepreneurs achieve their goals. Simon is joining us as our guest at this roundtable to share his unique perspective and insight with members of The Supper Club.
21 years after opening, YO! Sushi boasts more than 90 restaurant branches, and has ambitions to diversify the brand portfolio, expanding into the hotel industry with YOTELS and many more exciting plans to come.
