JINYA Ramen Bar to Bring Two Stores to Indianapolis

Committed to driving impressive domestic growth in new markets, JINYA Ramen Bar is set to bring its perfectly balanced bowls to The Hoosier State!

The acclaimed Japanese ramen restaurant announced today that it has signed an area development agreement with accomplished franchisee Jason Lam to open two JINYA restaurants in Indianapolis in February 2022.

Lam joins JINYA with 15 years of experience in the restaurant industry and currently owns and operates three different concepts.

“We can’t wait to expand into the state of Indiana,” said JINYA Ramen Bar Founder and CEO Tomo Takahashi. “And we’re proud to partner with Jason and welcome him to the JINYA family as our newest franchisee. With Jason’s experience operating another Japanese restaurant, we believe he’s the perfect fit to bring JINYA’s authentic ramen experience to the bustling city of Indianapolis.”

While visiting family, Lam dined at one of JINYA’s restaurants and was immediately attracted to the concept. He knew then that he wanted to bring JINYA’s rich broth in perfect balance with handmade noodles back to his home state.

“We’re excited to introduce JINYA’s contemporary Japanese dining to the Indianapolis community,” Lam said. “There is nothing like JINYA in the area, so we are certain it will become a huge hit. We’re opening our first location in the popular Fishers District, so we hope that eating delicious ramen soon becomes an everyday ritual for Indy locals and visitors alike.”
