Company Story

Onigilly was the vision of two young Japanese friends who decided they wanted to share a traditional Japanese snack with the US. After moving from Japan, Kan Hasegawa and Koji Kanematsu wondered about the abundance of sushi restaurants and the lack of onigiri shops. With the easy-to-eat and healthy ingredients they were surprised to realize that onigiri didn’t exist in the US and so with the intention to re-imagine a Japanese staple along with their excitement to share a healthy snack alternative they formed Onigilly™.
