From Sushi Maki’s first opening in 2000 to over 20 locations throughout South Florida today, Abe Ng, founder and CEO of the company, has used his entrepreneurial sense, strong work ethic and hospitality chops to bring us the ultimate local sushi restaurant chain experience. The Sushi Maki brand has grown in consumer popularity due to its high quality ingredients offered at down-to-earth prices. Thanks to this consistent service, we see Sushi Maki everywhere we turn from Coral Gables to Palmetto Bay, Miami International Airport to Ft. Lauderdale International Airport, all of our major universities and stadiums we love, even our children probably had their first sushi at Sushi Maki!

Sushi Maki has also become the sushi brand of choice at events thanks to it’s highly successful, restaurant quality catering coming from its state of the art 10,000sq. ft. commissary in Medley, Florida. Wharton grads love it so much, Carlos de la Cruz is a regular customer and will be serving us delicious Sushi Maki at our upcoming Economic Forecast event!

Abe Ng will give us an inside look at future growth prospects and challenges for Sushi Maki beyond South Florida.

If you have ordered contact lenses or a custom made pair of eye glasses from your ophthalmologist, chances are, they came from ABB Optical Group. Begun by optometrist Angel Alvarez 25 years ago with a desire to help other optometrists build their businesses, today ABB Optical Group is the leading distributor of optical products in the United States. ABB Optical Group services 2/3 of all eye care practitioners by processing over 35,000 orders a day from 4 distribution centers both to offices and patients – all at top speed of next day or 1 to 2 day delivery. You could almost say they are the Amazon of optometry.

Amazingly, they go beyond distribution with marketing savvy and industry leading technological advances in customized eye wear options. Paul Sherman, CFO of ABB Optical Group and leader of transformational change, will share with us insights into the strategic focus and future of ABB Optical Group.
