The development of our business in Japan and overseas is founded through our food business model of a wholesome and joyful way of life for our customers.
It has been 50 years since we first opened both restaurants “Tonkatsu Shinjuku Saboten” and Chinese Cuisine “Shahoden”.
Last year in 2017 we celebrated the 50th anniversary of our foundation and had grown in scale to more than 600 locations. We believe this successful growth came from the outstanding relationship with our numerous customers and clients, and deeply appreciate them for choosing and supporting us every day.
In recent years, the hospitality industry has been developing rapidly worldwide with the Asian region being the center of the growth. Another big turning point of this growth globally is due to its dynamic progress of technology with tremendous IT advances. In this environment, with the Tokyo Olympics scheduled to be held in 2020, we expect much of the growth in domestic market, as well as the future international market to considerably increase more and more.
Since we opened the first “Saboten” in 2001, we operate approximately 130 locations in 8 countries, which include China, Taiwan, and Thailand. We now plan for the total force of our group to continuously focus on promoting our business to develop in overseas expansion, primarily in Asian countries with an increased interest in healthy lifestyle and Japanese food.
Among the significant changes of our current times and social environment, there is nothing more important for us than to strive at bringing more joy to many of you and a greater customer satisfaction by improving our employees’ awareness of our mission, in accordance with our corporate motto, “Making others happy leads to our own prosperity”. Based on the spirit of this motto, which has been passed down for years, we will continue to make positive effort to provide TASTEFUL, HEALTHY, WARM AND SAFE FOOD, along with the best possible professional service as we set our goals to deliver you a much more joyful life by pursuing the net level of customers’ needs as a company that contributes to a greater human health.
