JINYA Ramen Bar is bringing its one-of-a-kind, authentic ramen experience to the pristine beaches of Hilton Head!
JINYA Founder and CEO Tomonori Takahashi announced today that the company has executed a new franchise agreement with Franchisee Zhu Wei to open the brand’s first location in South Carolina. Wei currently owns Okko, a popular hibachi and sushi restaurant, among other Asian-fusion restaurants in the area, such as Asian Bistro.
“We are impressed with Zhu’s existing franchises and professionalism, and are excited to work with him to further the success of JINYA,” Takahashi says. “We’re excited to expand into South Carolina. I feel confident that the residents and visitors of Hilton Head will enjoy the traditional taste and flavor of JINYA and that it will become a staple in the community.”
With 40 locations currently open nationwide, JINYA’s expansion into Hilton Head is a steppingstone as it increases the brand’s influence on the East Coast.
“JINYA Ramen Bar is the first of its kind in Hilton Head, so we can’t wait to show the community what true ramen culture is all about,” Wei says. “JINYA’s ramen is second to none with delicious, rich broth, handmade noodles and authentic toppings. I look forward to bringing JINYA here to Hilton Head.”
The health and safety of its guests and team members is JINYA’s top priority. In addition to adhering to all federal, state and local guidelines, JINYA has implemented enhanced sanitization standards and processes.
