Masa Japanese Restaurant, York PA | Merchant Profile

Caroline Lai is the owner of Masa Japanese Restaurant in York, PA. She got her start working in real estate, but she wanted to move into a career that allowed her to spend more time with her children. Her family had always worked in the restaurant industry and it was a place where she felt confident and comfortable. In 1999, with the help of her father and brother, she bought a building and started to create her first restaurant. Masa opened in 2004.  Caroline came up with the name, Masa, when she was practicing writing Asian characters, called Kanji. It means beautiful and elegant. It fits her concept, and it connects Masa to her other restaurants, which also start with "M." Caroline loves being an independent restaurant owner because she can share her culture and develop a personal connection with the customers. She also loves her amazing staff and getting to offer them opportunities. Richard is the head chef at Masa. He constantly creates new unique and beautiful rolls to add to their extensive menu.
