As well as being the gateway to the skies, airports are popular among tourists. We have expanded our business network to 10 airports all over Japan.
In 1951, we opened our first restaurant and retail store that was only 50sqm in Fukuoka Airport. We have since been providing air travelers and airport visitors with high-quality food and services. As a result, our network has grown nationwide from Hokkaido to Okinawa, and we now operate restaurants and retail shops in Japan's 10 major airports. Through such initiatives as offering regional menus that use locally-produced ingredients, we have received high ratings from all of the customers that have visited each airport. We will continue our efforts to create airport restaurants that make air travel more pleasant.

We opened a restaurant and retail store at the Mekari parking area in Kitakyushu, Fukuoka in 1973. Since then, we operate restaurants, food courts, and retail stores at service areas and parking areas all over Japan, and offering local specialty, seasonal items and etc.

The Japan World Expo '70 was our first step toward nationwide expansion. Royal exists where people gather.
In March, 1970, Royal operated stores in the U.S. zone of the Japan World Expo '70 and its success was our first step toward our current nationwide business. Royal continued to operate stores at large-scale exhibitions such as the Asia Pacific Expo in 1989 to attain operational know-how. With these experiences, we also provide pleasant dining spaces in convention and conference halls, including Makuhari Messe, Tokyo International Exhibition Center, and Tokyo International Forum.
