Ace Wasabi Employee Fund

Dear Family and Friends,

As you know, it has been an unprecedented time for us all. With the mandatory closures of restaurants and the statewide Shelter-in-Place ordinance, Ace Wasabi had to make the difficult decision to lay off 22 of 27 members of our team. It was a decision that has left us heavy-hearted and we’re determined to find a solution to support them how we can. 

We are humbly asking for your continued support to raise funds for our employees. If you’ve ever dined at the restaurant, then you’re already familiar with who you are helping -- our young servers (most of whom juggled school and hours at the restaurant to support themselves) and our hardworking chefs and cooks (many of whom juggled two jobs in the kitchen to provide for their families). It is our promise to you that 100% of all the funds raised here will go straight to our employees, so they can continue to support themselves and their families during this difficult time.

We know that a countless number of our neighbors are also facing these same difficulties, so please know that your support is not taken lightly. Any and every bit of support you can offer makes a difference. 

For now, Ace Wasabi will continue to operate in a takeout-only capacity with a limited menu and skeleton crew. Our hope is that we can continue to keep the lights on so that when this is all over, we can welcome back our full team and continue providing the community with good quality food and a fun space to enjoy it in. Our 25th anniversary is this December, and with your continued support, we plan to celebrate it with you all in style. 

Until then, be well and spread around kindness where you can. And, from the bottom of our hearts - thank you! 

With gratitude, 

Ken Lowe, Owner of Ace Wasabi Rock ‘N Roll Sushi
