US-based restaurant operator Yoshiharu Global has concluded the acquisition of three Las Vegas, Nevada eateries from an undisclosed seller.

As part of the $3.6m deal, first announced in November 2023, Yoshiharu Global has acquired the Jjanga, HJH and Ramen Aku restaurants.

The purchase was made using cash, a promissory note and a convertible note. The convertible note allows the seller to choose to convert the debt into Class A shares of Yoshiharu Global.

The seller has entered an employment agreement to manage each of the newly acquired restaurants, which are expected to generate annual revenues of $6m in 2024, according to Yoshiharu president, CEO and board chairman James Chae.

Chae said: “We eagerly anticipate leveraging the financial success seen with these stores to further expand the Yoshiharu brand into a new state.

“Through this strategic acquisition, we anticipate breaking even in the second half of 2024 and becoming profitable in 2025.”
