The new location will be one of the chain’s first to offer a selection of grab-and-go items, such as Pocky Sticks, Sriracha peas, ready-made sushi, poke bowls, sushi burritos and salads. It will also sell Edo Japan’s signature Teriyaki chicken and Sukiyaki beef, as well as new Noodlefull and Chop Chop bowls.
“My dream is to contribute to the community by presenting a new, healthy dining option, providing fresh and delicious meals made right before your eyes,” says Wijesinghe. “If I know one thing about Winnipeggers, it is that they enjoy something new, fresh and unique.”
Edo Japan currently has 120 franchises in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan.
“We are excited to begin our growth into the eastern markets through Winnipeg,” says David Minnett, Edo Japan’s CEO. “We have been inspired by the enthusiasm of Dinusha, who will be introducing our fresh dining offerings to another great Canadian city.”
