A Colorado sushi chain is expanding into the Denver Pavilions shopping center.

Motomaki will open a 3,300-square-foot restaurant this fall near the Forever 21 store on the shopping center's first level. Two other Motomaki locations are in Lakewood and Boulder.

Motomaki Inc. is owned by the Hapa Franchise Group Inc., which also operates four Hapa Sushi restaurants in Colorado.

"Opening our newest restaurant at Denver Pavilions will help us tap into a large, growing new market.
