Having opened in 1929 at the foot of Tsutenkaku, the famous landmark tower in Shin-Sekai, Osaka, "Kushikatsu Daruma" has since become known in the Kansai area for good taste and affordable prices, with customers forming a line upon opening for business every day. It now is a 13-restaurant chain in Japan.

The G-7 Group is a mega franchisee operating Autobacs, Business Supermarket and other franchise stores with about 250 stores in Japan and 7 stores abroad.

Taking advantage of the G-7 Group's accumulated management know-how and Kushikatsu Daruma priding itself on good taste in general and, in particular, the recipe for cooking Kushikatsu or skewered and grilled cutlets of meat, fish, vegetables and other ingredients, G7 International will proceed to open more restaurants in Southeast Asia.  

The two companies joined forces to open the first restaurant in Taipei, Taiwan.

From now on, we will consult Ichimonkai about opening Kushikatsu Daruma restaurants in Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia.
