A perk of living in the U.S. is the world of food that is available. A franchise to consider is the Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ Restaurant. Gyu-Kaku, meaning "Horn of the Bull" in Japanese, is a California-based brand that serves authentic Japanese yakiniku (grilled barbecue). The brand's dining experience is unique because customers share premium cooked meats over a flaming smokeless grill, while sipping on Japanese sake, shochu, and frosty cold beers. Gyu-Kaku offers a wide range of meats including Harami Skirt Steak in Miso Marinade and Prime Kalbi Short Rib in Tare Sweet Soy Marinade. Some of the brand's Angus Beef is aged for 21 days in order to increase tenderness and flavor. Since its inception, the brand has expanded to to over 825 locations globally. The brand's first U.S. location was opened in Las Angeles in 2021.
