Edo Japan is equipped with an undoubtedly successful business model across the country and a robust expansion plan, most recently focusing on expansion within the eastern markets. The franchise model has been a pillar of success offering extensive training and coaching, a system-wide marketing program, regional operations support and more. With its continued plans for growth, Edo Japan welcomes franchisees and business partners for the Ontario market.
“The opening of our inaugural Ottawa location is a significant achievement for our eastern expansion,” said David Minnett, President and CEO, Edo Japan. “With such a strong footprint in Western Canada, we are humbled by the warm welcome Edo Japan has already received in the Ontario market and look forward to continuing this momentum as we invite Ottawa residents to enjoy our signature offerings.”
Situated in Barrhaven, Edo Japan’s first Ottawa location will be operated by franchise veterans Cong Le, Don Pham, Huyen Le and Alan Huynh.
