    Move this to Hot Deals if this is too spammy for Hangout, but I'm involved in this company and I like the food so I'm going to shill for it. Express Rolls is like an Asian Snap Kitchen/Subway. We're trying to do almost restaurant quality sushi at grocery store prices (I think we got the fish down good, but the rice needs a little refining). We also have spring rolls, unique fusion rolls, vermicelli bowls, soups and salads. Everything is made from a local kitchen and delivered twice daily to locations. We try to keep the sushi out for less than 4 hours. The soup is served hot on site, and the vermicelli bowls (beef, chicken, shrimp, or pork) can be heated up for you there and we have the greens and sauces that come with it too. It's more of a grab n go concept, but people can eat in too.

    5801 Memorial is having its grand opening party now. We had a great lunch rush and are hoping for the same for dinner. 50% off all menu items today and we're giving away tumblers too. There are currently 5 locations in Houston and we plan to open at least 5 more over the next few months. Let me know what you think about the food. Yelp reception has been good so far, but I'm all ears for feedback and I'll pass it to the kitchen. Thanks for the read and sorry if it's too spammy, but this will be my only thread about this.

    People still wear express?

    Did the quality improve? Stopped wearing express in 2006 because the clothing felt overpriced for very cheap low quality products.

    Great, I'll get you some 25% off coupons and send them to you if you want. I'll PM you when the grand opening of that location happens.

    Awesome, and please lmk any feedback you have, even if you hate it.

    Lol, Structure is what went out of style (before becoming Express). There are still over 600 Express locations with over $2B in gross sales.

    Been to one already. Not crazy about the rice. Saw them setting up a tent on memorial and thought that **** would blow down.

    The one I went to is the Allen center. I kept talking **** about people ordering food and called them round eye people.

    I like your website. It is colorful and the pictures are nice, but as a friendly suggestion calling a vegetarian roll as a tree hugger roll might not be the best idea. I personally have no problem with it, but some more idealistic vegetarians/environmentalists might take exception.

    I think that is just on the splash page on not the name of the actual menu item. Looking for it to laugh I found that there is no description of the actual rolls. It just shows various combos of SOME kind of food in rolls.

    I guess I'm not the only one who thought this was about the clothing store.

    Where is your expansion money coming from?
    I invest money (institutionally) in restaurants companies.
    I think you can PM me if you want to talk...

    Is this better than Hotballa's all natural gluten free egg rolls?

    Awesome business plan.

    Grand opening, hours say 11-9 and I'm there at 7:45pm and they're closed.

    Thanks again.

    Thanks XB

    I will definitely let you know when Shepherd opens and get you some coupons.

    Within a year. We're looking to solidify the model in Houston first, but we have experience with taking other companies national so we're running fast.

    Lol, thanks for the business dude. Try the happy hour deals. Also, it's hard to do the rice right when it's done 25 minutes away at another location. We'll keep trying on it though.
