A rewarding opportunity

Our current market is as diverse as our menu! We are hugely popular with professionals and students especially as we are located in university hotspots, our target audience is 16-30 and 30–60-year-olds. Current trading is strong, the pandemic has proved that businesses can grow if they can adapt. This has been the case for our Yakinori delivery platforms which currently make up 55% of our takings.

We will help you realise your own 1000+sqft Yakinori Restaurant, in the best location, with flexible options to eat in takeaway and deliveries. We also have the option of a second brand Pokenori that can increase revenue whilst utilising the same site.
