Costco Is Opening a New Sushi Counter

Freshly rolled sushi may soon be available at Costco. A new post on Costco's subreddit (r/Costco) suggests a new sushi counter will open in Costco's flagship 

According to the photo, the new sushi station will be next to the bakery and have a "Kirkland Signature Sushi" sign. Photo caption: "Employee

observed me taking a picture and told me it opens Friday, 6/9. Can't wait to test! Hopefully better than the pre-packaged variety they sold before."

Costco members have traditionally enjoyed a variety of baked treats from each location's bakery. Costco looks to be testing in-house sushi

preparation. New ideas are often tested in Costco's flagship store in Issaquah before being implemented nationwide.

Costco has mostly sold distributor-prepared sushi until now. However, Costco Hawaii and Japan have long sold fresh sushi. They've had sushi

at Japanese Costcos for years. A few trays of nigiri and maki sushi made a no-prep dinner easy and affordable. One Redditor hoped the thing we get here is high-quality and cheap.

After hearing rumors about in-house sushi in April, Costco members were excited for fresher fish. Costco has many good groceries,

I tried it once. The situation was horrible."1/10 would never buy again," a Redditor said of Costco's pre-packaged sushi this year. Walk away.
