Message from the Leadership


Chief Executive Officer

Akinari Nakagawa

Our company was born in 1974 as a frozen food business company (Kinrei Corporation) under the Osaka Gas Group. Based on the company culture of "simple honesty and diligence"we have strove for the purpose of social contribution through food. In April 2014 we changed our company name to KR Food Service Corporation and began progressing toward realizing our dream "to become a blue chip food service company."

We uphold our vision to "deliver the best gochisō-sama (appreciation of the meal)" and wish to be a company which cherishes the time-honored heart of "chisō (treating)" of Japan. "Chisō" means run about for preparation while carefully thinking about the customers. "Gochisō-sama" is a word which expresses the heart of appreciation not only for the food and hospitality that was provided right in front of you but also for the time and effort which was expended for the various prepration works with you in mind.

We aim for our business to continue everlastingly by firmly taking root in the locale with a motto of "sticking with the locale," valuing each and every store at the same time as increasing our store presence.
We will continue challening by always thinking about and imagining our customers and treasures the heart of "chisō " which drives us to run about for the underlying and essential preparation works.

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.
