About us

It started one night in Los Angeles when a small group of friends wanted to do something different for dinner. When the idea of sushi came up, fortunately one friend had plenty of experience. Everyone took turns creating their unique rolls, learning along the way. What started out as a casual dinner quickly evolved and it soon became evident to all that this experience would grow beyond that kitchen. 

And just like that… RollThisWay was born.

After moving back to his hometown of Toronto, Chef John Hoffmann attended culinary school to strengthen his knowledge. Soon he was traveling across Canada with Cirque du Soleil, feeding thousands of VIP clientele, further honing his skills. In 2017, his wife joined the team and help to open RollthisWay’s first Sushi Bar at the prestigious Windermere House in Muskoka. In 2018, The Thompson Hotel Rooftop was home to their second residency. 

In the spring of 2020, the team at RollThisWay successfully pivoted their business to adjust to a new landscape and began to offer their sushi making classes online, creating their Sushi Making 101 Virtual Class. The class comes complete with a full kit with all the food and tools needed to follow along.  This product quickly took off and found great success with such companies as Google, IBM, Salesforce, Home Depot, Pinterest and hundreds more.  

Today, after catering hundreds of weddings, corporate lunches, bar mitzvahs, bachelorettes and birthdays, and teaching thousands of students, their team of skilled chefs are eager to make your next event one for the books. 

Let RollThisWay show you a different side of sushi.
