Local sushi chain opening two new locations, looking for more


Fusian, the made-to-order sushi-roll chain launched by three Oakwood natives, is adding its fourth and fifth locations in the Cincinnati area in the next six months and is actively looking to expand in the Dayton area, according to Fusian co-founder Stephan Harman.

Harman and his two business partners and childhood friends, brothers Josh and Zach Weprin, co-founded Fusian in Cincinnati in May 2010 with a restaurant at 600 Vine St. They opened a Dayton restaurant at 1200 Brown St., adjacent to the University of Dayton, in the fall of 2011, then added a third location on High Street at 11th Avenue across from Ohio State University’s campus in Columbus earlier this year.

Fusian’s second Cincinnati-area restaurant is scheduled to open in October in the Hyde Park Plaza, and the Fusian founders just announced they’ll open a Kenwood location on Montgomery Road in early 2014, Harman said.

Harman said he and his partners would like to open more locations in and around their hometown.

“The Dayton area surely has more growth opportunities for us, but we haven’t found the right locations yet,” he said. “We always have our feelers out. Dayton is definitely on our radar.”

Josh and Zach Weprin are both OSU grads, and Harman is a UD grad. Harman said the three founders consider Cincinnati, Dayton and Columbus Fusian’s primary markets.

“We’re trying to grow smart and organically,” Harman said. “And we want to build an organization that will support that growth.”

Fusian offers built-to-order sushi rolls in a service style similar to Chipotle. Options for the protein portion of Fusian’s sushi rolls include raw tuna, salmon, and yellowtail, or customers can choose roasted chicken or braised steak.
