Fukuoka-based ICHIRAN opened its first overseas branch in Hong Kong on July 11, riding on the brand's strong awareness in the city as the first step of its expansion beyond Japan.

The ICHIRAN shop is located in the prime Causeway Bay tourist district and sells only ramen as part of the brand's dedication to this genuine Japanese cuisine. According to the President and Chief Executive Officer of ICHIRAN, Mr Manabu Yoshitomi, ICHIRAN in Hong Kong will follow most of its Japanese operating style, including opening 24 hours a day. The design will include all of ICHIRAN's creations including its original counter, with individual partitioned seats, an environment that eliminates all distractions from concentrating on the flavour.

Mr Yoshitomi said, "I think that many in Hong Kong who have travelled to Japan will have already heard of our brand. As Hong Kong people generally love Japanese food and culture and given the increasing number of visitors the city receives every year, I think our decision to land in Hong Kong is a right move at a right time.

"Back home in Japan, we are dedicated to genuine ramen, both in terms of the taste and the environment. With a history of over 50 years, we would like to go beyond our home country and expand into other parts of Asia. Hong Kong offers an easy business environment and growing demand that warrants our choice. I am confident that our ramen quality will be liked by customers here."

The Associate Director-General of Investment Promotion, Mr Andrew Davis, welcomed ICHIRAN opening in Hong Kong and said, "Hong Kong received 48 million visitors last year and this year we look forward to having over 50 million visitors. This creates huge demand for quality food and beverage products and services. ICHIRAN's innovative operations and its Japanese style will also set it apart from other restaurants in Hong Kong. I look forward to seeing ICHIRAN succeed in Hong Kong."

  一蘭拉麵店位於旅遊熱點銅鑼灣,主打正宗日本拉麵。一蘭主席兼行政總裁吉富學表示,一蘭在香港的分店會盡量沿用日本的經營模式,包括二十四小時營運,內部裝修亦會參照日本總店的風格,採用獨立間隔,讓食客專心品嚐拉麵。
  吉富學表示:「相信很多曾到訪日本的港人均認識一蘭拉麵。香港人普遍喜愛日本食物和文化,加上訪港旅客人數逐年遞增,相信這是最合適的時機在香港開展我們的業務。」
  他補充說:「一蘭在日本經營超過五十年,無論在味道和店鋪環境上,一蘭一直致力保留正宗的拉麵精神。我們希望衝出日本,將品牌擴展到亞洲其他地方。香港為我們提供便利的營商環境,加上港人對飲食的需求不斷上升,都是我們來港發展的原因,我很有信心這裏的顧客會欣賞一蘭的拉麵。」
投資推廣署助理署長戴威士歡迎一蘭在港開設分店。他說:「去年訪港旅客達四千八百萬人,本年度數字有望超逾五千萬人,暢旺的旅遊業為高質素的餐飲服務業帶來龐大需求。一蘭糅合了創新的營運手法和傳統的日本風格,將有助品牌在香港樹立獨特的形象。我在此祝願一蘭在港的生意蒸蒸日上。」


一蘭拉麵於1960 年在日本褔岡市博多區創立,過去五十年專注製作高品質拉麵,主打經典豬骨拉麵。一蘭在香港的分店會盡量沿用日本的經營模式,包括二十四小時營運。
