September 19, 2014 // Franchising.com // Calgary, Alberta - Edo Japan opened the doors to its 30th Calgary restaurant, situated on the 36th Street N.E. Marlborough Mall pad site, today at 10 a.m.
Known for its signature dishes', including Sukiyaki Beef and Teriyaki Chicken, Edo Japan is dedicated to serving customers fresh, healthy meals made with simply better ingredients.

"I have worked closely with the Edo Japan brand for more than 20 years and have witnessed the success of the company firsthand," said Nguyen. "Edo Japan's popularity continues to grow and it was an easy decision to expand my Edo Japan restaurant portfolio by opening a second location."
"The growth and success of Edo Japan can be attributed to the commitment and dedication of our franchisees," said Tom Donaldson, President and CEO. "As we continue to expand we look forward to establishing a presence in the neighborhoods where we reside and sharing our love for Simply Better food."
