The Trappers Sushi Story
At Trapper’s Sushi, we strive to create a small town atmosphere at each of our locations;
we want to get to know the communities we service. In fact, Trapper encourages our staff
to learn at least your name by the time you leave, or in his mind, we haven’t done our job.
Trapper O’Keeffe has been preparing Sushi for over 20 years. He started training under his
brother-in-law, Eisuke Sato, at the age of 17 in Reno, Nevada. After Eisuke closed his restaurant,
and moved back to Japan, Trapper took what he learned to Washington state. He quickly noticed his
style of sushi was very popular, and began searching for an opportunity to open his own restaurant.
In 2004, Sushi Town opened in Bonney Lake. It wasn’t very long before Trapper noticed customers
were visiting from throughout Washington, and began to look for opportunities to expand. Trapper’s
Sushi in Covington, our second location, was quickly followed by stores in Puyallup and Bremerton.
We’re currently proud to be serving 8 communities in Washington state, with hopefully more to come.
These days, you probably won’t find Trapper behind the counter rolling sushi, but there is a great chance
you’ll meet one of his family members, who share his philosophy of getting to know every customer like
they are family. Trapper greatly appreciates customers taking the time to share their dining experience,
and he encourages both regular and new customers alike to let him know how we’re doing.
Trapper’s goal is to make Trapper’s Sushi a place you’ll want to visit again and again. He hopes
after each visit you will be thinking about what new roll you are going to try tomorrow.
