The story of Yoshinoya begins in the bustling Nihonbashi Fish Market of Chuoku Tokyo in 1899. Here, hard-working fisherman were often hungry, but too busy to stop for a hot meal. Our founder, Eikichi Matsuda, saw this need and knew he could help. So he opened a whole new type of restaurant: one serving hot, tasty rice bowls that were fast and affordable. He named it Yoshinoya and it became a place fisherman & locals were instantly hooked on the mouth-watering Gy?don Beef Bowls®. Word traveled quickly, and Yoshinoya developed a loyal following. When the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923 destroyed our first restaurant, we opened a new one in Tsukiji to keep fans happy. Today, we have more than 2,000 locations worldwide: Japan, Hong Kong, China, Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia and here in the U.S. Mission: A lot has changed, but some things have stayed the same: we’re still cooking irresistible, Japanese rice bowls, and serving them fast, at an affordable price. And we’re still the best place to go when you need a tasty break from a busy day.
