Sakura Express – New Restaurant Opens In Falmouth
Falmouth, Jamaica now has a brand new restaurant on Market Street at the corner of George’s Street. This was the former location of Cedric’s Restaurant. It is called Sakura Express. “Sakura” is Japanese for “cherry blossom.”
The new cooked, fast food restaurant, is causing quite a stir. This is not only because of the taste, but because of the variety of meals, the presentation, prices and size of servings.
The Simple Changes That Are Punishing Other Local Restaurants
Unfortunately, Falmouth is known for small serving portions as well as a very narrow menu. Sakura is hailed for its variety as well as introducing several dishes that are new to Falmouth. Customers can choose different meats, vegetables, rice, pasta. They can mix and match to suit their appetite.
The Falmouth tradition is that you order and someone prepares your order ‘around the back.’ Sakura lets you choose, and it is shared right in front of you. This simple change, is only now coming to our town. Guess what? The people love it. A simple change in tradition is causing a boom in business.
Long lines are now almost a constant in Sakura. It has shaken up the local restaurant scene and it seems obvious that existing business are already losing business. Just hearing the buzz and seeing the unprecedented demand speaks volumes.
Of course it can be argued that this is because it is new. However, I think there is now no turning back. The local eating industry will never be the same.
How Sakura Came to Falmouth
I spoke with a girl who said she went to Sakura’s branch in Montego Bay and told them that they need to come to Falmouth. They heeded her advice and told her they found a place in Falmouth. Within a few weeks after the spoke with them, they wasted no time, and Sakura is now satisfying appetites in Falmouth, Jamaica.
We Hope All Falmouth Restaurants Will Have Success
The development of our town, in all aspects of life, continues. Let’s hope that Sakura Express does not hit the other restaurants too hard. We do not want a big outsider destroying local businesess. On the other hand, we hope that this will be the catalyst to improve the standards of our local restaurants. The keywords here are choice, price, size and variety.
