Rock n Roll Sushi - Franchise Information
Lance Hallmark and Gerry Mach were both working in Biloxi, Mississippi at the casinos when they first met back in 2009. Gerry is from Mobile, AL and Lance is from Winfield, AL. The two were inseparable from the moment they met. They both worked hard and talked about their future like every one else.
The idea of opening a restaurant came up. They have both been in the food/bar industry for over 14 years. A lot of ideas were tossed around for several months about what city and what type of restaurant. Gerri wanted to do a sushi bar (her favorite food ) in her hometown Mobile, AL inside of the mall because there wasn’t very many food choices there. One of the hardest parts was coming up with THE perfect name. They both knew they wanted it to be different and have a more laid back atmosphere where customers can enjoy good food, hang out, and have a good time. Lance was driving home from work one night and called Gerri with excitement shouting, “ROCK N ROLL SUSHI” as soon as she picked up the phone. The ideas just started pouring out from there.
The idea was created, so it was time to make this thing a reality. Once the 1000 sq ft. space was leased, the hard part began, which was finding the perfect team for the whole operation. Lance and Gerri knew they couldn’t do it alone. They strongly believe success is not created by one person, but by a team that comes together as one. After months of construction, the team was hired, the menu was finalized, and everything was almost ready for the opening of Rock N Roll Sushi. Lance and Gerri poured their hearts into this sushi bar and spent every penny they had to their name.
