About Our Organization

Edo Japan is a coming together of the friends, family and neighbours, making up millions of people who are inspired to eat the most delicious teriyaki, everyday. Proudly Canadian-owned and operated, Edo Japan — often known simply as Edo (ee-doe) — is one of Canada’s fastest growing franchises, with more than 158 locations nationwide.

Founded more than 40 years ago in Calgary, Alberta, the quick-service restaurant was designed to bring communities together through the freshness of Japanese teppanyaki-style cooking. This inclusive philosophy is at the core of our company of franchisees to this day. We take pride in making Edo a welcoming place for both customers and staff, providing you with a fun work environment where you have opportunities to continuously grow and develop.
