It's Your Business: Ko-Fusion opens on campus

Ko-Fusion on Campus has opened, offering a "quick casual" version of the popular downtown Champaign restaurant.

The new location, at 701 S. Gregory St., U — just to the south and east of Krannert Center for the Performing Arts — is open from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

The restaurant, owned by Janet and Barry Bubin, features "Dollar Sushi."

As explained on the restaurant's website, "Dollar Sushi offers sushi rolls by the piece, giving guests the freedom to taste several different rolls rather than having to commit to a whole roll."

Alternatively, diners may choose to order one of the house rolls or build their own eight-piece roll.

Beyond the sushi menu, customers can order salads, stir-fry offerings and side dishes.

The phone numbers for Ko-Fusion on Campus are 954-1505 and 954-1572.

Sterling moves up the street

Sterling Wealth Management plans to move to new offices in the M2 on Neil building on May 2, financial adviser Sharon Allen said.

The firm has had offices in the Executive Center at 115 N. Neil St., C, for 10 years. But with the move to M2 at 301 N. Neil St., C, Sterling will double its space.

Allen said Sterling plans to occupy 2,300 square feet on the second floor, just over the building's breezeway.

"A year and a half ago, we added staff, and we'd like to add more," she said. "We're now positioning ourselves for the future."

Sterling's phone number will remain 398-1900.

Items are priced by the consignor and generally sell for about one-third of the usual retail price. Families earn 65 percent to 70 percent of the sale price.

Admission to the sale is free April 13-16, but there is a $2 admission fee on Saturday, the opening day, when hours are 6 to 9 p.m. Hours the other days of the sale are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
