JINYA Ramen Bar

The JINYA Ramen Bar franchise is Japanese-inspired food concept specializing in ramen noodles. The brand was founded by Tomo Takahashi, who came to the U.S. in 2010. But when he looked for his favorite Japanese food, he realized that he could only enjoy the traditional taste of ramen if he made it himself. As the son of a successful restauranteur in Japan, Takahaski knew what it would take to build a great restaurant. Wanting to revive his father's dream, he opened the first JINYA location in 2000. The ideal franchisee is passionate about customer service and can follow a proven system.
