About Edo Japan
Established in 1979 in Calgary, Alberta, Edo Japan was designed to bring freshness of hot Japanese Teppan-style cooking to suburban shopping centres and food courts across Canada. With 137 locations in Canada and chain sales over $120 million, the Japanese inspired quick service restaurant continues to gain popularity across the country for its offering of the highest quality, freshly prepared, healthy and delicious meal options. Known for both its signature dishes, Teriyaki Chicken and Sukiyaki Beef, and new menu favourites, including on-trend bowl features, like the Noodleful Bowl and the Chop Chop Bowl, Edo has become an industry leader and well-loved by Canadians. Edo offers better and healthier choice to consumers, all while serving more than eight million meals annually. Edo is a rapidly growing chain and has been continuously opening new restaurants and growing sales for the past 15+ years. The impressive growth has been fuelled by the introduction of their street store concept in addition to a strong commitment to making Japanese cuisine easy, friendly and accessible.
Drivers of Historical Success
Edo is a successful franchise model with strong unit economics and a very supportive culture. This commitment to the business and guests has resulted in Edo being awarded the Franchisee’s Choice designation for 8 years in a row by the Canadian Franchise Association. Backed by Yellow Point Equity Partners, there is a vision to see growth on a
national scale and they are prepared to invest to scale the company across Canada.
