What’s about Osaka Ousho?
Osaka Ohsho is a gyoza (dumpling) chain operated by Eat & Holdings Co.
It operates 470 stores, including 35 overseas (as of February 2021).
Osaka Ohsho opened its first store in Kyobashi, Osaka in 1969, two years after Gyoza no Ohsho.
Compared to Gyoza Ohsho, Osaka Ohsho offers a more youth-oriented menu, and its lineup is characterized by Chinese cuisine with a twist rather than authentic Chinese food.
The design of the store is also changing with the times, and it is said to be an “evolving long-established restaurant.
What’s the difference between Osaka Ousho and Gyoza no Ousho?
It is a well-known story that the founder of Osaka Ohsho is actually a relative of Gyoza no Ohsho, and that Osaka Ohsho became independent from Gyoza no Ohsho in the form of a goodwill split.
At first, Osaka Ohsho used the name “Gyoza no Ohsho” to increase its business performance, but it was sued for opening a restaurant in Kyoto Prefecture, which is in Gyoza no Ohsho’s business area, and in December 1985, the restaurant changed its name to “Osaka Ohsho”.
In fact, there are stores that look similar to Gyoza no Ohsho and Osaka Ohsho, so there are a surprisingly large number of people who enter the stores by mistake.
