Sushi Zushi CEO to address ICE audit
SAN ANTONIO - The CEO of Sushi Zushi will address the media Tuesday after the temporary closure of the popular restaurant across the state.
The San Antonio-based chain closed all its Texas locations Friday after learning the company was being audited by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
In a written statement, Sushi Zushi said the decision to close its restaurants was made by executive management, due to an “unanticipated internal reaction to news of a routine I-9 audit.”
Several employees did not report to work after learning of the audit, the company said.
Sushi Zushi CEO Alfonso Tomita will address the issues in a press conference Tuesday morning at 10 a.m.
The company says it has made its best efforts to comply with immigration requirements.
