Go Go Curry is a Japanese curry chain restaurant that provides delicious Kanazawa-style curry. Founded in 2006, Go Go Curry opened its first location in New York City. Go Go Curry began franchising in 2018 and has since opened several restaurants across the United States.

Go Go Curry is actively seeking to expand its reach by adding new franchisees throughout the United States.

Why You May Want to Start a Go Go Curry Franchise

Go Go Curry believes it has simple and efficient operations. It does not require franchisees to have previous culinary experience. However, franchisees should have entrepreneurial skills and ambition. Go Go Curry has a strong focus on creating and maintaining happiness at all levels of the organization. Go Go Curry has over a decade of experience and operates in various locations across the United States.
