Yoshinoya is one of Japan’s largest restaurant chain companies and global brand with over 1,200 outlets worldwide. It is known for its quick service and the menu is based on fresh ingredients that are prepared daily and served in a variety of Rice Bowls, including its more than 100 year-old Beef Bowl (Gyūdon) recipe. It started it all in 1899 with a small shop in Nihonbashi Fish Market. Yoshinoya was founded by Mr. Eikichi Matsuda and was named after his hometown of Yoshino-Cho Osaka, Japan.
Yoshinoya’s founder, Mr. Eikichi Matsuda, first thought of the “Bull Horn” logo, using orange as the main colour, and has been adopted as Yoshinoya’s logo since 1899. The idea of the “Bull horn” logo was derived from the character ‘Y’ in Yoshinoya’s English name. The rope surrounding the horn represents the “Yokozuna” ranking (winner) in Japanese sumo wrestling, also representing the “Yokozuna” quality of our food. A ring of 27 rice grains encapsulates the rope and the horn and together, it translates to how Yoshinoya sells the “Best Beef Bowls”.
