Fast casual brand Pizza Cucinova to enter Japan

Pizza Cucinova will launch 15 restaurants in Japan via a partnership with KADOYA.

KADOYA is the master franchisee of Greenberry Coffee in Japan and also run the BBQ concept, Shinra.

Ryohei Iwatani, president & CEO of K&B Brothers, a KADOYA subsidiary, said, "We have tremendous confidence in the Sbarro Management Team and are excited to join them in impacting Japanese food culture. Pizza is very popular in Japan, but people know it for either delivery pizza with less quality or high-end restaurant pizza as part of an Italian full course dinner. Now, with Pizza Cucinova, we add another option for pizza lovers in a fast-casual environment. Our customers will enjoy authentic, customizable pizza at a reasonable price."

"We are very grateful for Ryohei and his team for their trust and confidence in our Pizza Cucinova brand as well as Rafael and his team for bringing Sbarro to Argentina," said David Karam, Sbarro CEO. "We are very excited to enter these countries with such proven restaurant operators and real estate developers, and look forward to the opening of their first locations."
