Food and Beverage Business

Business Area

We developed four brands across Asia in the F&B business, with our main focus on Japanese cuisine.

Vision / Mission

Our vision is to spread happiness through food. We believe we are able to achieve this by spreading Japanese cuisine that has a strong appeal to consumers all over the world.

Business Strategy

Turnaround and scaling up the businesses by managing them as our own

Most companies enter the F&B business for investment purposes, but we manage our own F&B business with the aim to develop and grow the business and achieve a scale of 10 billion yen. YCP’s strategy involves a roll-up investment where we take on distressed deals and turnaround the business by managing it as our own. With our own management, we are able to scale up the businesses and achieve further growth.

Success in overseas development in the F&B business with a unique strategy

With an increasing global trend on health, healthy Japanese cuisine appeals to a large consumer market. However, there are little examples of Japanese restaurants that have been successful in the global market. In order to be widely known globally, YCP adopts a unique strategy – to focus on quick service restaurants with simple preparation procedures and streamline operations, making it easy to scale up the business.

From Asia to America – an acceleration of global development

Our first venture into the business was Teppei Syokudo in both Singapore and Hong Kong. It has been a great success. Tokyo Chopped Salad, the first chopped salad provider to incorporate Japanese flavours in Singapore was launched from scratch as an incubation business. We acquired Hachikyo, a seafood izakaya pub developed in Sapporo to target inbound overseas tourists and created for overseas development. In the near future, we will focus our efforts in Japanese food brand development, not only in Asia, but also in Europe and America.

Securing Talent That Is Indispensable To Stable Business Management

A common issue faced in the F&B business is securing labour talents. However, at YCP, we place emphasis on HR strategy which not only rely on monetary compensations, but also focus on optimizing working hours, utilizing senior human resources and creating a good working environment that gives employees a sense of belonging. By keeping in mind the various needs of employees who have diverse working goals and commitments, we are able to secure valuable human resources that is indispensable to the operation of our businesses.
