Wasabi also will apply the funds toward expanding Soboro, its Japanese and Korean bakery brand and to improve productivity at its warehouse and kitchen operations in London. Founded 15 years ago, Wasabi has 51 stand-alone outlets as well as additional concessions in five branches of retailer Marks & Spencer. It opened its first location in the U.S. last year, in New York.
