After graduating from the University of California, Berkeley in 2006 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science & American Studies with Honors, Kristofor initially desired to be an environmental lawyer as he understood even then that sustainability is one of the biggest issues of our time. However, after looking at the rise of the farm-to-table movement in the culinary industry, Kristofor thought about conquering the impossible by taking the practice to the next level with one of his favorite foods: sushi. In 2008, Kristofor set out on a mission to build the most innovative and creative hospitality group in America, the Sustainable Restaurant Group (SRG). SRG is the living embodiment of this mission, where business is used as a force for good, making every decision with the highest regard for this world and the people in it. Today, under Kristofor's leadership, SRG runs two successful concepts (Bamboo Sushi and QuickFish). With nine current locations across Portland, Denver, Seattle, Phoenix and San Ramon, SRG will be expanding its Bamboo Sushi concept with two new locations in the San Francisco Bay Area this year, followed by Scottsdale, Arizona shortly after. Kristofor uses the rapid growth of the restaurant group as a catalyst for vital conversations about the responsibility of the restaurant industry; speaking on topics such as climate change, health & wellness, and food system reform.
