Message from the Leadership


Chief Executive Officer

Susumu Mochizuki

Since its founding in 1974 as a group company in Osaka Gas, KR FOOD SERVICE CORPORATION has kept on challenging of contributing to society through foods, in accordance with its corporate culture of "simple 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.

Within this context, we will build a business model that responds to environmental change with focus on the suburban road side, by making good use of the "sticking with the locale" know-how we have cultivated over many years in the suburban road side business and the brand development know-how of the Create Restaurants Group.
While taking on new challenges, we keep in mind to maintain a long-lasting business relationship with our motto of "sticking with the locale" making each store count.

KR FOOD SERVICE CORPORATION will continue to take on challenges by always thinking of our customers and treasures the heart of "chisō (treating)" in preparing them.

Our Brands

We operate over 100 outlets in total, the core business being our mainstay format of Japanese chain restaurant "Kagonoya," coupled with specialty restaurant business, restaurants located inside highway service areas, as well as overseas outlets.
The first "Kagonoya" outlet opened in Takarazuka (Hyōgo prefecture) in 1993. The outlets are primarily located at suburban roadside in the Kansai region of Kyōto, Osaka, Kobe and have steadily expanded into the Tokyo Metroplitan area as welll as Tokai region. Kagonoya is a restaurant where one can enjoy "seasonally authentic Japanese food and shabu shabu" in a "relaxing Japanese ambience" modeled after a modern day inn ("hatago."). The nature of it being a chain restaurant notwithstanding, we aim for each store to realize "omotenashi" in line with the usage of the customers of the locality.

Shabu shabu and sukiyaki specialty restaurant "Kagonoya Honten," Kyomachi-ya udon "Fūfuya," authentic Chinese restaurant "Shato Hanten" and other specialty restaurants aiming for fine quality are the starting point of our company's "quality" and "omotenashi (hospitality)." Furthermore, the merging of the brand development capability of specialty restaurants and store operating capabiity at Kagonoya has led to the opening of outlets inside highway service areas.

It is not simply about pursuing greatness in scale of the individual businesses. It is about ensuring each stores is able to deliver the "best gochiso-sama" to the customers. We think that it is ultimately about the collection of stores characterized by such a quality.
