Hawaii residents don’t have to wait until 2019 for rail — Genki Sushi at Ala Moana Center renovated their restaurant to offer a new, double-rail sushi delivery system. This is the first rail system to be introduced in the United States, and Genki Sushi has plans to eventually renovate all of their Hawaii locations to feature the technology.

Yasumasa Sudo, President of Genki Sushi USA and Yoko Kato, Director of Genki Sushi USA were both in attendance.

The rail is high tech and runs on magnetic tracks. Ordering is easy with the touch screen panels. You can put in four orders at a time.

The touchscreen is detachable so you can pass it around and other people at your table can place an order.

Food arrives on a bullet train, car, fish, space shuttle, or surfboard.

After you’re done taking your plates, press the return button to send the delivery vehicle back. Simple and fun!
