Shoryu Ramen restarts franchising plans

It is seeking franchisees interested in single or multi-unit operations immediately.

Shoryu Ramen announced it has restarted plans to franchise in and out of the UK, teaming up with Ford Consultancy Group.

The brand originally sought to franchise in 2019, but suspended it due to COVID-19. The company focused on its own restaurants, delivery kitchens and online DIY ramen kits, which they say “enabled them to emerge in a very strong position ready for expansion.”
Known for its bowls of Hakata tonkotsu ramen inspired by founder Tak Tokumine’s favourite dishes from his home city, the company operates 13 outlets under the Shoryu Ramen brand as well as the Japan Centre, Yokocho Ramen and Ichiba Japanese Food Hall at Westfield Shepherds Bush.
"The future opportunities for franchisees and Shoryu is exciting and I look forward to seeing new customers enjoy my hometown ramen across Britain and beyond in the future,” Tokumine said in a statement.
