Growth Opportunities

The rice bowl franchise is growing rapidly across the country

There’s a popular saying, “As California goes, so goes the rest of the nation,” which means that what starts in the Golden State eventually finds its way into every other state, too.

The same can be said for WaBa Grill. Founded in 2006 in Southern California, WaBa Grill has become a part of the fabric of the West Coast with nearly 200 locations and millions of fans.

Now, WaBa Grill is rapidly expanding to the rest of the country.

After years of organic growth driven by existing franchise owners investing in new locations and building out new markets, WaBa Grill is focusing on franchise development efforts in earnest. The business model is proven to deliver on both profit-potential and scalability, our menu meets the growing demand for health-conscious options, and our product is perfect for lunch-on-the-go and third-party delivery. 

It’s no wonder why our existing franchise owners are buying up so much territory and expanding into new markets. In fact, WaBa Grill doubled the size of our footprint over the last few years, and we’re on pace to do it again.

“WaBa Grill has seen tremendous growth over the last few years,” says Andrew Kim, CEO and President of WaBa Grill. “The majority of our growth has come from existing franchise owners reinvesting in the brand, which is strong validation that our business model works. Now, after several years of record breaking sales, we’re focusing on franchise development in earnest, and we’re actively seeking passionate entrepreneurs who want to bring WaBa Grill to their markets. There’s a ton of momentum behind our brand, and we’re very excited about growing WaBa Grill across the country.”
