These days, that's an easy thing for Richardson to make happen, as his company, the beginning of the year, moved into Chisholm Creek's Tract 30 development south of the Kilpatrick Turnpike off Western Avenue.

OKLAHOMA CITY – Yokozuna sushi and Pan-Asian restaurant in Chisholm Creek’s Tract 30 building has nearly twice the seating of its two Tulsa-area predecessors.
