We make it fast and keep it fresh.

We may be the new kids on the block, but we aren’t new to the game. In fact, we’ve been around the block a few times.

Built on the expertise gained from RED’s success, we’re bringing quality sushi to the fast lane.

Our Mission

No compromises.
No sacrifices.
Totally delicious.

We’re rethinking the way fast-casual food makes us feel. We believe in creating food that’s healthy, delicious, and always made with the highest-quality ingredients. It’s our mission to reshape the way people enjoy not only sushi but fast-casual food in general. By sourcing fresh, quality ingredients, we can create dishes that will fill you up and make you feel good.


Why are you named after a pocket knife?

Intentionally spelled with one K, the name Jacknife draws on two ideas that are important to us: quality and flexibility.

A number of varieties of tuna have “jack” in their name. Joining the reference to tuna with the word “knife” represents the connection between quality ingredients and careful craftsmanship required to make good sushi.

Another name for a pocket knife, the jackknife is versatile, reliable, and always at the ready. All associations we’re pleased to make with our exciting, quick, quality food.

What was your menu inspired by?

Born from the idea that fast-casual food can be healthy – and tasty, Jacknife takes fresh, high quality ingredients and carefully crafts them into excitingly delicious food for you to enjoy in a flash. We all prioritize efficiency more now than ever. At Jacknife, we make it fast and keep it fresh.
