Edo Japan – Simply Better

A Canadian Success Story. Quick service, fresh Japanese food.


Superior Franchise Concept

Edo Japan is one of Canada’s most successful fast casual dining brands. With a concept unlike anything else in Canada, we’ve grown a loyal customer base, with more than 130 locations across Canada. We have recently built on our Canadian franchise success story, with expansion into Eastern Canada.



How Edo Japan Is Different

  • Inspired by the tastes of Japan, we understand how to serve authentic and healthy food targeted to a time-crunched population.
  • With few competitors in the quick service Japanese food category and over eight million meals served each year, Canadians the love the Edo Japan franchise for our tasty Teriyaki meals and hand-rolled sushi.
  • The Edo Japan franchise concept is uniquely positioned to achieve authentic, fresh food, with limited wait time. This is all accomplished while keeping food and labour costs low, so franchisees see the strongest return on their investment.



Continued Profitability

Edo Japan has delivered a strong record of success and profitability for more than 50 consecutive quarters (13 years!) in terms of same store sales growth in Western Canada – something simply unheard of in the Canadian franchise industry a whole.

The Edo Japan brand is well positioned for continued growth across diverse communities across Canada. Edo Japan is known for being a healthier option to typical fast food, and we appeal to the ever-growing category of health-conscious consumers.
