About us

Max is originally from Japan, and has been residing in the USA for over 20 years now. Whilst in Japan, he used to work at Tokyo's famous Tsukiji Central Fish Market,  renowned for supplying the freshest fish daily for all sushi restaurants in Tokyo and its environs.

After coming to the US, he studied Culinary Arts/Baking and worked at many hotels & restaurants including The Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Buckhead GA, The Essex House Hotel, New York City, and Le Cirque, in Manhattan. He became a pastry chef and worked for the hotel at the World Trade Center for over 5 years, before deciding to have his own business, specializing in various sugar creations, thus Sugarworks was born.
