Meet Tim and Erin Archuleta, the husband-and-wife team behind San Francisco’s ICHI Sushi & Ni Bar and the upcoming Japanese oyster bar, ICHI Kakiya. Over the course of their 10 years as a couple, they have run a catering business, a pop-up, an award-winning full-service restaurant with around 40 employees. But their secret to success is simple.
“The bottom line is that we’re really nice to each other,” says Erin. “It sounds general, but we really love each other.”
Here, we ask the duo all about building a business together, their very different work styles, and how they’re celebrating Valentine’s Day.
