David Sumo Meltzer, Owner of Sumo San Antonio, LLC, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the restaurant business.

Mr. Sumo Meltzer is currently the owner of Sumo San Antonio, LLC, after having worked as an employee for the company from 2011 to 2016 and entering the restaurant business as an employee at Benihana. The company operates the Sumo Japanese Steakhouse in San Antonio, Texas. The traditional Japanese hibachi steakhouse is the first of what Mr. Sumo Meltzer hopes to be a larger chain of restaurants. Trained in the Japanese cooking style, teppanyaki, he has in his employment some of the best sushi chefs in the city. Originally aiming to impress his father, Bradley Meltzer, Mr. Sumo Meltzer was also inspired by the first sushi master to come to Texas, who taught him everything about Japanese restaurants.

Attributing his success to his father for giving him a start, Mr. Sumo Meltzer fondly remembers being a child when his father’s first restaurant opened. It signified a new chapter in both of their lives and growing up within the field led him to grow tremendously as a person. A successful networker, Mr. Sumo Meltzer does a lot of his own press and strives to tell as many people as possible about his business.

Mr. Sumo Meltzer gives additional credit to his sister, Lauren Lyons, and his mother, Arlene Farr, for also having a great influence on him while growing up. He is extremely grateful for his wife, Rosemarie Meltzer, and his daughter, Mekayla Meltzer. Greatly ambitious, he strives to open up three more restaurants and branch out into different styles of cooking, with a special interest in Chinese barbecue. Hoping to open his second location by 2020, his advice to those working to enter the business is to stay humble and take things one day at a time. In recognition of his professional achievements, he has received a Gold Award and a Readers Choice Award from the San Antonio News and was recognized as a Private by the Texas Ranger Foundation. Furthermore, the San Antonio News Express has voted Mr. Sumo Meltzer’s restaurant as the Best Steakhouse in 2019-2020.
