The popularity is due to the ease and pricing. It makes it easy for customers to enjoy sushi as all they need to do is to enter the restaurant, take a seat, then choose the sushi to eat. As there are less staff to manage the restaurant, the pricing of each sushi tend to be cheaper than standard sushi restaurants.
