Sushi chefs cooked in the middle of the belt, while the customers sat on the outside. Once finished with a fish-filled creation, the chefs placed them on the belt, allowing customers to pull dishes from the rotation. The price is calculated by the plates, as each color corresponds with a different price.

Sick of spending hundreds of dollars for a haircut at a New York salon? Me too; which is why I entered to receive a free haircut from Bumble and bumble. The famous hair business started the Bumble and bumble University Model Project, offering free haircuts, coloring, and styling for those selected to be a model. Rather than using plastic dummies, students learn through chosen clients.
