Beefcakes Now Deliver Sushi to Your Door in Japan During Lockdown
As delivery services continue to be of essence at this time, a new sushi business in Japan decided to buff up its staff — and quite literally.
Vber Macho, based in Nagoya, is targeting customers who are down to get served by muscular delivery men.
Owner Masanori Sugiura already runs two other food businesses: catering company Withwin and upscale sushi restaurant Imazushi.
Interestingly, he happens to be a bodybuilder too, so he incorporated this interest into his new startup.
Vber Macho offers bento plates, sushi sets and party platters.
As of this writing, it deploys six delivery men — including Sugiura himself — who have met each other through bodybuilding tournaments.
The deliverymen come at the customer’s doorstep in happi coats, which happen to be part of traditional Japanese culinary culture.
A genius choice for their uniform, the coats can be easily stripped off should customers request for the deliverymen to flex their muscles.
