About us

Where it all started

The love of special rolls!


In 1999, The Happy Sumo emerged onto the Utah dining scene with a vision to revolutionize the sushi experience for Utah residents. During that time, the concept of Asian fusion and intricate specialty rolls was relatively new, making it challenging to find such offerings. Recognizing this opportunity, The Happy Sumo embarked on a journey to introduce innovative, mouth-watering, and delectable sushi roll combinations to Utah’s emerging restaurant scene. Since then, The Happy Sumo has continually strived for excellence, continuously improving and refining each recipe in a never ending cycle of improvement, resulting in some of the most exceptional specialty rolls ever created – anywhere!
