Around 1965 when young employee John Yokoyama purchased the fish stand he decided to take the business in a new direction. After another employee suggested that they become “World Famous,” they started printing the saying on their packaging. While at first “World Famous” may have been a self-proclaimed title, there is no doubting this claim today. People travel from all over the world for their fresh seafood, but it is really the show that drives them in. Ordering a fish? Don’t expect it to be handed to the man behind the counter…expect for it to be tossed through the air!
