Food’s Style strives to become a leading company
to help with systematized overseas franchising and startup of Japanese restaurants,
in order to communicate Japan’s traditional culinary and hospitality culture to the world.
By building a platform where any motivated individual can open food overseas,
Food’s Style will create opportunities for the coming generation
so that they can expand their businesses outside of Japan.
In addition to supportive consultation on global expansion,
we create peripheral businesses surrounding food service.
Food’s Style also aims to be a responsible contributor to society.
In Japan, we create a platform for food consumption to bridge and connect
regional producers/farmers and consumers in the city.
Providing a platform for conveying Japan’s traditional gastro-culture and omotenashi spirit to the global marketplace
Food’s Style aims to lead the way in conveying Japan’s traditional gastro-culture and omotenashi spirit to the global marketplace by forming a network of overseas restaurant outlets and helping restaurateurs develop their businesses overseas.
Our global restaurant business is centred on knowledge acquisition. We are amassing first-hand experience in restaurant ownership and franchising, and building an international information network.
This acquired knowledge is put to good use in our platform business. Our platform business is centred on developing a gastro-platform – a platform whereby anyone who so desires can expand their business overseas. To this end, we are creating opportunities for young people to expand their horizons beyond Japan. With this gastro-platform, we can not only offer solutions for overseas expansion but also contribute to society by creating peripheral businesses and connecting producers with urban consumers.

Message from the President
In pursuit of a platform for exporting Japanese gastro-culture
Having started out in the domestic restaurant management business, our company has expanded overseas, establishing a subsidiary in the United States, and we now operate an international network of outlets. Japanese restaurant are expanding year by year, particularly in the United States, and we feel that such expansion holds exciting potential.
Traditional Japanese food – washoku – has tremendous appeal. This appeal is partly down to its great taste, but more importantly, it is related to the fact that it embodies the country’s ethos of meticulous customer service, known as ometenashi. We founded this company with the aim of exporting this internationally acclaimed gastro-culture and letting people around the world encounter its charms. The prospect of overseas expansion still remains daunting for many restaurateurs, but we believe that further globalisation will lead to increasing demand for the overseas expansion of washoku.
To cater to such demand, we started the restaurant business. In this business segment, we are developing a domestic and overseas network of our own outlets and franchised outlets. We also started the platform business. In this business segment, we use the expertise accumulated in the restaurant business to help Japanese restaurant and washoku-related businesses make the leap overseas and develop new restaurant ventures.
Alongside these efforts, we play a key role in securing and nurturing young Japanese talent who are willing to play a role on the world stage. Our business operations depend upon talented individuals who can promote Japan’s gastro-culture to the world. In the past three years, we have recruited many young people who were hungry for success, and they are now performing admirably in management roles inside and outside Japan. We want to continue actively recruiting young men and women who will be a credit to their country.
Amid the hectic fluctuations of the world economy, Food’s Style aims to win support from around the world by improving people’s lives and contributing to society through food.
