Quick-service restaurant Edo Japan opened its first Ottawa restaurant on June 24.
“The opening of our inaugural location is a significant achievement for our eastern expansion,” said the company’s CEO and president David Minnett. “With such a strong footprint in Western Canada, we are humbled by the warm welcome Edo Japan has already received in the Ontario market and look forward to continuing this momentum.”
The new location will be operated by franchise veterans Cong Le, Don Pham, Huyen Le, and Alan Huynh. The three previously worked for the brand in Edmonton, Alta.
“Having been a part of the Edo Japan team for more than 10 years, this is a natural next step for me to introduce this restaurant to Ottawa and help build an enduring brand countrywide,” said Cong Le. “With my dedicated business partners, I look forward to this exciting new venture.”
This continues the brand’s eastern expansion having also recently opened their first location in Mississauga, Ont.
