A rewarding opportunity.
In 1964, a small Japanese restaurant opened in New York City with the goal of introducing teppanyaki cooking to people around the world. Since the Benihana brand name and its trademark hold one of the strongest awareness levels in the restaurant industry, owning a Benihana restaurant can be a very rewarding investment.
A large part of the success of the Benihana concept can be attributed to the performance that awaits the millions of guests each year. Served in a hibachi style Japanese experience, our guests enjoy the company of friends and family who are celebrating special occasions or just enjoying a fine dining experience. Known as the leading Asian restaurant chain in the country, every aspect of our restaurants accentuates the finest Japanese traditions and culture.
