JINYA Ramen Bar

Challenge
JLL’s Retail team was selected to bring JINYA to market on the East Coast. JINYA Ramen Bar is a chain of restaurants based in Los Angeles, California, specializing in ramen noodle dishes.

Solutions
JLL identified core trade areas in both urban and suburban Washington, DC markets where JINYA could succeed on a large scale and worked with both landlords and permitting authorities to help expedite  speed to market. JLL coordinated multiple real estate tours with JINYA’s senior leadership and design teams to finalize a targeted real estate expansion strategy.

Results
The team was able to identify the first east coast locations for JINYA Ramen Bar in the Washington, DC market. The leases were quickly secured on prime locations in Mosaic District in Fairfax, VA and 14th Street in Washington, DC resulting in the first unit open being in the top three of the entire system.
