AVONDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- Avondale is getting a new sushi restaurant opening late next month.
Trapper's Sushi will be opening its first Arizona location near 99th Avenue and McDowell Road in Avondale. The restaurant is expected to open in late February or early March. The restaurant will have several TVs, an all-you-can-eat sushi bar with 14 seats and an outdoor patio that can accommodate 40 people.
Trapper's was founded by Trapper O'Keefe in 2004 in Washington state. He has been preparing sushi for 20 years and learned from his brother-in-law who lives in Japan. Trapper's has 11 locations across Washington state and is now bringing a new location to Avondale.
"I am super excited to share my brand with Avondale. I have been in business for over 16 years and have grown to 11 Trapper's Sushi locations and another burger concept. I have always thought that AZ would be a great place to expand and create opportunities for employees," said O'Keefe.
Trapper's is now looking to hire 45 employees for both front and back of house positions. Go to trapperssushi.com/careers to apply. Trapper's Sushi will be located at 10321 W. McDowell Road in Avondale.
