Chief Executive Officer Susumu Mochizuki

Since its founding in 1974 as a group company of Osaka Gas, KR FOOD SERVICE CORPORATION has been striving to achieve its goal of contributing to society through foods, in accordance with its corporate culture of “simplicity,” “honesty” and “diligence."
In 2005, we became independent from the Osaka Gas Group. We have been a member of the Create Restaurants Holdings group and been playing a role in developing suburban stores since June 2015.
On December 1, 2018, we have changed the name of the company to KR HOLDINGS CORPORATION and have begun to take steps to become a multi-brand food company.
On September 1, 2022, we merged the holding company with the operating companies to form KR FOOD SERVICE CORPORATION with the aim of concentrating on strengthening our current business and promoting management efficiency.

The business environment surrounding food service industry is becoming increasingly uncertain.
Within this context, we will build a business model that responds to change with a focus on the suburban roadside. We will leverage our knowledge in "community based business" that we have cultivated over many years in the suburban roadside business and combine it with the brand development know-how of the Create Restaurants Group.

While taking on new challenges, we will continue to care for each stores and maintain a long-lasting business relationship with our motto of "community based business."

KR FOOD SERVICE CORPORATION will continue to take on challenges by always thinking of our customers and staying true to the word "chisō (treating)."
