The Auntie Anneâ€™s franchise has announced that it has entered the Japanese market with a new store opening operated by master franchisor, AA Japan Co., Ltd. The introduction of Auntie Anneâ€™s products in Japan coupled with the franchisorâ€™s retail experience and commitment to excellence resulted in, the company says, a successful grand opening for this store and, in terms of dollars, was Auntie Anneâ€™s biggest international opening to date.
Mike McCoy, Director of Franchise Development and International Operations said, â€œThe store opening in Japan demonstrates the momentum that can be created around introducing a brand into an international market. The energy and passion of the Japanese team, focus on efficient operations, high foot traffic, and excitement over the product created by active marketing efforts are key components to AA Japan Co., Ltd.â€™s successful launch. We could not ask for a better group to work with to introduce our brand in such an important market.â€
