Wendy's to open 2nd Japan restaurant in Roppongi on Aug 17
Wendy’s Japan will open its second restaurant in Roppongi on Aug 17. The store will be located on Roppongi-dori opposite TGI Friday’s.
Wendy’s relaunched in Japan opposite Omotesando Hills last Dec 27, two years after exiting the market.
Wendy’s/Arby’s International Inc and Higa Industries Co Ltd, a successful food importer and distributor based in Tokyo, signed a joint venture agreement to develop and operate Wendy’s restaurants in Japan. Higa Industries is led by Ernest Higa, who owned and operated 180 Domino’s Pizza stores in Japan before selling the business in February 2010.
This is the first overseas joint venture for Wendy’s/Arby’s International. Wendy’s Japan plans to open 100 stores in the next five years.
