KINTON RAMEN Franchising



Established in May 2012, KINTON RAMEN was one of Toronto's first Japanese ramen restaurants.

Our team of professional ramen chefs strives to offer customers an extraordinary dining experience and serve them happiness with every order. Using the freshest ingredients to make the best quality noodles and broths, KINTON RAMEN invites customers to enjoy our exceptional ramen bowls right down to the last drop!

Since its inception, KINTON RAMEN's quality-driven, customer-centric and award-winning concept has been carving a niche in the Japanese ramen market, which has drawn a lot of positive media attention and helped grow a loyal customer base. KINTON RAMEN never compromises quality and success, and we seek franchising partners that share this sentiment.

Our goal, commitment to quality and vision

We are constantly evolving, but these customer-centric facets of our business will always remain the same: us serving our customers happiness and our customers slurping their ramen bowls right down to the last drop.

Why become a franchisee?

Gaining financial independence, performing rewarding work and building equity are just a few of the benefits of owning your own business. Owning a KINTON RAMEN gives franchisees the opportunity to be a part of a successful brand that focuses on a passion for serving delicious ramen, offering a great guest experience and ensuring profitability.


What makes KINTON RAMEN unique?

Fresh and quality ingredients

Our signature soup base is made by simmering quality pork and chicken bones and adding hand-selected bonito fish and fresh vegetables. This process creates an exceptionally sophisticated and rich flavour profile we call “umami.” We are particular about our noodles. Using high quality flour and special air-tight dough-kneading techniques, we create the best texture and flavour in our noodles that perfectly complement our signature soup bases. To top off our signature soup bases and high-quality noodles, we only use the freshest, locally sourced protein and vegetables.

Inclusive menu offerings and unique seasonal specials

Since 2012, we have grown not only in locations, but also in offerings. What started as pork-only ramen bowls at our first Toronto location, has evolved into not only pork, but also chicken, karaage and most recently an entire range of vegetarian ramen options. And we're not done! As we grow, we are constantly serving up new menu offerings and seasonal specials are always in the works. In 2020, we launched timely specials like our Immune Booster Ramen, our Longevity Ramen special in honour of Lunar New Year and unique month-long exclusives like our All Day Breakfast Ramen!
