Chester Zoo’s Penguins Get a Flavour for Yo!Sushi

Yo!Sushi celebrates the launch of a brand new restaurant in Cheshire Oaks by feeding more than just the local community

It’s feeding time at Chester Zoo and the Humboldt penguins are getting all in a flap over who’s preparing their favourite dish. Iconic Japanese restaurant group, YO! Sushi is pledging support for the little fish lovers marking an ongoing partnership with the UK’s largest zoo. Sushi isn’t on the menu for the penguins; they will be enjoying a feast of sustainably sourced fish, just like diners and the new Cheshire Oaks and Chester restaurants.

Michelle Duma, Chester Zoo’s corporate and events fundraiser commented: “We’re thrilled to have YO! Sushi as a corporate supporter of our Humboldt Penguins. Just like us they only serve up fish from sustainable sources and I’m sure they’ll be a welcome addition to the local community”

YO! Sushi is opening its second restaurant in Cheshire due to demand from the local area. The new 2,300 square foot, 74 seat restaurant has been designed especially for the Cheshire Oaks shopping center and will open its doors Friday 13 June.

Katie Crossfield, Marketing Manager at YO! Sushi added: “We’re thrilled that YO! Sushi is the first official restaurant partner Chester Zoo has ever had and delighted to be supporting the colony of over 35 penguins that live there. YO! Sushi has proved popular in Chester and we’re very happy to be opening our second restaurant in the local area due to the fantastic demand and support we’ve received from the local community.”
