Canmore - Ramen Arashi
This was Ken and Yuji’s second location. Encouraged by the success of the Banff restaurant, they wanted to see if an exact replica of the concept would yield similar results. It was an amazing success from the very beginning. The elements that went into their Banff location proved to be just as popular in Canmore as it was in Banff. Just like Banff, the food was excellent and the atmosphere was inviting and friendly.
They developed proprietary ingredients from specialized suppliers, increasing their business efficiency and the unique flavours of their brand. They began to get inquiries, “are there other Ramen Arashi restaurants?”. The idea of spreading their passion for Ramen to other cities further afield began to take shape and came into focus when an old friend came to town.
