Company philosophy

Ichibanya's corporate mind is formed from three elements, "Company Motto", "Mission", and "Business Objective". It aims for a stable development through proper judgements and actions along the company philosophy.

Company motto

"Briskly, Sharply, and with a Smile"

Always moving briskly and responding sharply with smile. In abbreviated form, we get the expression "Briskly, Sharply, and with a Smile." Although it is a simple expression, it is not easy to do. Having a feeling of gratitude, looking eagerly ahead, putting forth one's best effort - if these behaviors are not solidly acquired, we cannot provide customers with refreshing service. Therefore, we will continue to be conscientious about taking action " Briskly, Sharply, and with a Smile."

Company motto

Mission

"Continue to impress people through our operations, and be regarded as necessary for the regional society."

We deliver the best services to customers through food.
Why do customers come back to eat our curry? This is because we are continuing to satisfy the customer's expectations. However, we aim to exceed their expectations. Beyond impressing our customers, we find our true aim to be regarded as necessary for the regional society.

Mission

Business Objective

"Share happiness with all people who are related to our company"

Our extreme goal is not to just satisfy the stomachs of our customers, but to bring smiles, satisfaction, and excitement to them. We share this happiness with our stakeholders, and hope to expand our joy to the world.
