Why Franchise a Tori Jiro Yakitori Business?

According to the owners of Tori Jiro, they are among the most efficient Yakitori restaurant operators.

Here are 3 main advantages of opening a Tori Jiro Yakitori Franchise:

1. Unique FLAVORS

By cooking different parts of meats at different temperatures, and by using their own unique seasonings, Tori Jiro creates unique flavors for each dish.


Due to their menu and kitchen layout, Tori Jiro is able to operate with a small number of people and to reduce their labor costs. This is crucial for every franchisee.


Tori Jiro reduces their total costs by offering more chicken dishes, which are less expensive compared to beef and pork dishes.

Tori Jiro offers unique flavors.

Tori Jiro’s unique business style enables them to deliver local Japanese poultry like hanamidori from Fukuoka, nanbudori from Iwate and akadorisatsuma from Kagoshima. They ensure their high-quality chicken livers by shipping them by air. Their salt-flavored chicken has the ultimate savory flavor due to their carefully hand-picked salt.

If you’ve visited any of their branches in Japan, Hong Kong or the USA, you know that they offer high-quality products at extremely reasonable prices. This enables Tori Jiro to purchase products at almost the same price as a directly managed store. This would cause a high rate of usage in any other franchise store.

Opening a Yakitori Franchise Business Can Be Done With a Small Amount of Funds

TORI JIRO operates with a management style of small scale stores and few staff members in order to save money when opening and operating, including rent and labor costs, but also in order to increase the interest rate at the same time. The Tori Jiro kitchen layout focuses on effective operations, with the Japanese know-how which enables small scale management. They can secure a space for tables even with a small scale store by placing seats by the kitchen.

The Story behind Tori Jiro: Who is its Creator?

As he graduated from College, Tori Jiro’s founder, Yuki Watanabe, was torn between the decision of job hunting for a regular 8 to 5 career – or starting his own business. His favorite food during his college days was Yakitori, and one day he was watching a TV show about one of the most famous Yakitori restaurants in Tokyo. Watanabe was intrigued, so he visited the restaurant and was amazed by their delicious Yakitori.

Watanabe pleaded with the owner to train him, so he too could build a successful Yakitori restaurant. He was trained by this famous Yakitori chef, and then in 2008 opened his first restaurant, a skewers bar. The second restaurant that Watanabe opened was Tori Jiro.

With this clear and focused ambition, Watanabe set out to create the very best Yakitori in Japan, and according to many – he did just that. He grew the company by developing solid franchise partnerships across Japan, and he now serves his famous Yakitori in dozens of franchised restaurants in Japan and abroad.
