It’s the perfect duet – one of the premier saltwater fishing areas on the Florida coast and Rock N Roll Sushi.

The American-style sushi brand recently signed an Area Development Agreement with brothers Vincent and Nicholas Gannascoli to open two locations in southeast Florida. The brothers moved from New York to Florida in 1994, and have owned and operated three Tropical Smoothie Cafés in the Stuart and Jensen Beach area for the past 22 years.

“We loved the Rock N Roll Sushi concept and thought the brand was unique and different, so we  decided to bring it to southeast Florida,” says Nick Gannascoli. 

Vincent Gannascoli adds, “there really isn’t anything like it – with the great food and awesome atmosphere, it’s a truly unique overall dining experience. We’re excited to bring this concept to our area!” 

The Gannascoli brothers signed on with Rock N Roll Sushi to open two locations, but are considering more. They anticipate opening their first location in Q2 of 2024, in the heart of Stuart at the Baron Shoppes Plaza at 2620 SE Federal Highway. This 2,290-square-foot location will be Rock N Roll Sushi’s first restaurant along the Treasure Coast. 

For the Gannascolis’ second location, the brothers are in negotiations in the Tradition community in Port St. Lucie with an eye towards opening in Q1 of 2025. They acknowledge that Florida is an important market for Rock N Roll Sushi, as the business-friendly state has seen a recent increase in franchise interest.

“We’re psyched to have more successful entrepreneurs joining the family,” says Chris Kramolis, Chief Development Officer for Rock N Roll Sushi. “Expanding the brand means that we’re able to bring an incredible experience – with big, bold and loud flavors and great music – to more fans across the country!” 

Rock N Roll Sushi currently has 62 locations throughout the United States.

At Rock N Roll Sushi, fans enjoy food that’s deliciously twisted and made fresh for everyone. Boasting concepts and flavors that are big, bold and loud, Rock N Roll Sushi is the only place to experience the rock you love and the rolls you love with the ones you love! Everything about the American-style sushi restaurant, from its soundtrack to its soul, is pure rock ‘n roll – raw, inspired, amplified.
