OUR HISTORY: THE LEADERSHIP
“IN LOVING MEMORY OF MR. & MRS. FUJITA…..”
Thereafter, Tony headed for the U.S., where he would meet his beloved future wife, Kazue “Kay” and find his passion of becoming a restauranteur. Through many years of hardship and dedication, the couple worked their way up from a dishwasher and waitress to eventually owning their first luncheonette called “Mr. Fujiyama’s.” It was 1968, in Ridgefield, New Jersey, which marked their beginning to success.
Today, the Fujitas and their entrusted Mt. Fuji family–many of whom have been with the company for decades– run and operate the Mt. Fuji restaurants in Hillburn, NY, and Hasbrouck Heights, NJ. Together, they continue to share the cultural traditions of Japan, while gratefully serving their loyal customers, from near and far.
