MARUGAME SEIMEN opened its first Japanese outlet, MARUGAME SEIMEN Kakogawa, in November 2000. Since then, the Company has expanded its network of self-service Sanuki udon restaurants committed to serving the tastiness of genuine udon. All its outlets are equipped with noodle-making machines and make the best possible dough for the day with carefully selected Japanese wheat. They also use the open kitchen approach, preparing customers’orders right in front of them and presenting the “drama” of cooking to them. MARUGAME SEIMEN is by far the leading brand of its kind in Japan, with some 800 outlets nationwide. We opened Marukame Udon Waikiki Shop, MARUGAME SEIMEN’s first overseas outlet in Hawaii in April 2011. Our non-Japanese operations have grown successfully; today we operate some 130 restaurants in 12 countries and regions including Thailand, China, Korea, Hong Kong, Russia, Indonesia, Taiwan, Vietnam, Australia, Malaysia and Cambodia, spreading the tastiness of Sanuki udon around the world.
New Business Domain in Japan
The dynamic outlet opening strategy and flexible restaurant brand development to meet diverse customer needs are Toridoll's important strengths. By drawing on those strengths, we operate many self-developed brands vigorously. The concept we most prize in brand development is to serve freshly hand-cooked dishes. All the brands we now operate—including Toridoll, our founding restaurants; Makino of tempura; Butaya Ton-ichi of pork cutlets; and cafes—strictly adhere to our desire to serve freshly hand-cooked dishes.
