The Fukuoka branch of Teikoku Databank has released revenue rankings for companies operating restaurants in the Kyushu-Okinawa area for 2017. Sales revenue for the top 50 ranked companies totaled ¥493 billion, adding 2% to the record high of 2016. This time, Ichiran ranked 3rd (last time 6th) thanks to the popularity amongst inbound tourists. Consumption by foreign visitors and the opening of new restaurants are considered as the main factor for increased sales. Source: Nikkei Shimbun, 2/5/2019
