    Since 1955, more than 60 years
    Ichiryu was founded in 1955 in Hakata, Fukuoka. It was the first ramen shop among the stalls along the Nakagawa River. After that, Ichiryu opened its head office in Nakasu, and Ichiryu's noodles have captivated local ramen connoisseurs for many years. It now attracts customers from all over Japan and around the world. The Garden Group has successfully completed Ichiryu's franchise package. Ichiryu has established its brand as an authentic tonkotsu ramen shop in its 60-year history.


    Advantages etc

    Franchisor, Garden is a corporate revitalization specialist. The reason Garden Group began revitalizing the restaurant business was triggered by a corporate takeover in 2007. After that, we had the opportunity to acquire multiple companies and proceeded with the rebranding of the food and beverage business. Currently, the Garden Group owns more than 10 brands. These brands are not only directly owned by Garden Group, but also by a number of partner companies. Profitable restaurant franchise packages have garnered attention across Japan. We have cooperated with many partner companies to open new stores and continue to expand our business.
