History of Sarku Japan Franchise

The first Sarku Japan opened in 1987, and owners were a bit tentative. Despite many other popular Asian cuisine choices, it was unclear how audiences would react to the Japanese flavors and style of cooking. The high quality ingredients and fresh vegetables, in combination with expert seasonings, made Sarku Japan an instant hit with local residents. Within a few short years, many other locations were consistently being added. Today, Sarku Japan boasts more than 250 quick service hubs and dining establishments throughout North and South America. The continued success is largely due to the traditional preparation and food item choices that are consistently available at every location.

Sarku Japan offers a 20% reduction in the franchise fee for qualified veterans.
