This report presents the findings of a research project, contracted with UTS by Sushi Bay Pty Ltd, a Sydney-based business owned by Korean immigrants, into the dynamics of Korean immigrant entrepreneurs involved in food retailing in Sydney, particularly in the restaurants industry. Koreans have the highest rate of entrepreneurship of any immigrant group in Australia â twice the Australian average. This report analyses the results of a survey of 65 Korean immigrant entrepreneurs with businesses in food retailing in Sydney. Most are restaurant owners, though some own cafes and take-away food businesses. Many of those surveyed have located their restaurants and cafes in key suburban Korean ethnic precincts such as the City of Sydney, Eastwood, Campsie and Strathfield.
