History of Sakura Buffet
In order to understand the history of Sakura you need to go back in time and understand the journey it went through. Miyoko Omori is the owner of Sakura. She came all the way from Saitama, Japan to America in the early 1970s. In her early days, she used to work as a waitress at Fuji Ya which was located in Minneapolis. She went on waiting tables for almost seven years. After spending all these years as a waitress she decided to open her own restaurant in 1990 with her husband Kikugawa.
At that time she only had her last paycheck and the idea of opening her own restaurant. She was so convinced that her restaurant is going to work fine that a gentleman in Galtier Plaza Saint Paul rented her a place and even offered her some startup money. This was enough to get her started on her new restaurant which she named as Sakura. The name Sakura originates from a Japanese word that means cherry blossom. The name carried great significance for her because she was born in April and at this time Japan is full of bloom with these cherry blossom trees.
Soon the business showed that it was a huge success because it was one of its kind Japanese style seafood buffet. This was a very rare kind of restaurant at that time. After achieving five years of success it changed its location to Saint Peter’s. To date, Miyoko considers Sakura as her very personal venture and serves her customers just like her family. This is reason that it is a huge success because of her personal involvement in the restaurant.
