Edo Japan (London, ON)

Adding to their 5 locations in Ontario, Edo Japan, Edo for short, has launched its first London restaurant at the Southgate Centre on Wellington Road.

With a portfolio of 160 total locations across the globe which serve 10 million+ meals per year, a combination of vision-sharing franchisees and partners have been credited for the steady expansion of Edo’s Japanese-inspired cuisine in Canada. Edo had first launched in Alberta in 1979 with a focus of using a traditional teppan grill to create teppanyaki-style meals.

“Edo has experienced consistent success in Canada’s diverse markets, including recent openings in northern Ontario, Manitoba and British Columbia in 2021. We look forward to maintaining this momentum in Ontario with our cross-Canada expansion,” says David Minnett, President and CEO, Edo Japan. “Our accomplishments as a franchise are the product of our commitment to serving delicious, freshly prepared meals made with superior ingredients that win our customers over one order at a time.”

“The combination of our loyal customer base and Edo’s commitment to ensuring our franchisees are well positioned to achieve their business goals has enabled our franchisees’ strong track record of success and profitability,” said Terry Foster, Vice President, Operations/Franchising. “We want to provide long-term success for each franchise by conducting extensive market research before carefully selecting each location to ensure they are in the best position to build strong connections in the communities where they operate.”

Popular menu selections include veggie-filled rice and noodle bowls, spring rolls, bento box meals and hand-rolled sushi.
