MIDLAND, MI (December 1, 2014) – Maru Sushi & Grill will open in Midland’s East End facility during the summer of 2015, becoming the popular restaurant’s fourth Michigan location. Specializing in Japanese fare that is rooted in traditional techniques and contemporary elegance, Maru will add to the diversity of dining options in downtown Midland and within East End itself, which opened in June 2014 across from Dow Diamond.
“To become part of Midland’s growth, particularly within a prominent new development like East End, is an exciting opportunity,” said Robert Song, president of Maru Hospitality Group. “We look forward to joining the community, particularly one where the people are so well traveled and appreciate worldly tastes. We think they will enjoy Maru’s dishes and distinct style.”
Maru Sushi & Grill will be East End’s second restaurant, following the recent opening of State Street, which offers more Western-‐style fare such as paninis and soups. With several other business tenants already moved in, the addition will bring the facility to near capacity. The four-‐story East End was co-‐developed by Lansing-‐based commercial real estate development companies Gillespie Group and Caddis Development Group.
“Less than a year after East End’s grand opening, it’s great to already be announcing the addition of another tenant and another wonderful dining option for the area,” said Pat Gillespie, president of Gillespie Group. “East End has become a vital part of Midland’s business and cultural backdrop – not just for the people who work there, but for the many who frequent the area regularly. We’re proud of its growth and proud to welcome Maru into the fold.”
Maru Sushi & Grill’s other locations include Grand Rapids, Okemos and East Lansing. Learn more at www.marurestaurant.com.
