Uchi Restaurant Group is changing it’s name to Hai Hospitality.

The restaurant management group operates Uchi in Austin, Houston and Dallas, Uchiko in Austin and the recently opened Top Knot in Dallas.  Hai Hospitality recently announced the name change yesterday in a press release. Ha is a Japanese word, which in its simplest translation means, “Yes”, “I agree”, or “heard”. Their translation: You’re taken care of.

Uchi Restaurant Group Now Hai Hospitality

In conjunction with the announcement, Hai Hospitality is excited to launch its new website www.haihospitality.com. There you will find information about each restaurant, insights about Hai staff and restaurant teams, and original content and imagery. The site will house the group’s first ever job board with all of Hai’s open positions collected in one place. In addition to monthly staff stories, an online retail shop coming soon, and company-wide events, the Hai Times blog will act as a platform for staff to preserve and promote what makes them unique. The goal of the blog is show readers what it is like to work at Hai, while also offering Hai’s unique take on food, drink, and design.
