Once upon a time two Sydney boys had a vision of creating a healthier Australia, a country where busy people didn’t have to compromise on their health for convenience. A world where fast food doesn’t mean poor quality. And the dream came true.

In 2003, the first SumoSalad store opened in Sydney after Co-Founders Luke Baylis and James Miller retuned to Australia from the US with excess baggage to shed. Their concept completely transformed the perception and taste of salad! SumoSalad tasted GREAT.


…the business serves 6 million nutritious meals each year across the Sumo network of physical stores located in food courts, transport hubs, hospitals, universities and city centres; as well as our MySumo digital platform and catering services.

Through all of this growth and change, one thing has remained consistent: our commitment to enable Australians to access Sumo-sized, fresh, tasty, filling and affordable food that’s good for them, good for the planet, and requires zero compromise. We call this Fuelling Greatness®
