Beyond japan, MOS Burger continues to bring good taste to countries around the world.
MOS Burger is constantly growing all around the world! We are currently present in 10 countries as of Dec 2022.
While working at an investment company in Los Angeles in the 1960s, Mr. Sakurada frequented a local hamburger chain called Tommy’s. Inspired by the ‘cook to order’ concept, and delicious hamburgers at Tommy’s, Mr. Sakurada hit on the idea that a counterpart to an American icon would be as popular with his countrymen.
After returning to Japan, Mr. Sakurada started his hamburger shop venture and set up the first MOS Burger shop in Tokyo in 1972. Committed to producing food fine-tuned to the Japanese palate, Mr. Sakurada inspired his team to create innovative products that would stand the test of time. One of the finest creations was the Rice Burger, which proved a mash hit when it was launched in Japan in 1987.
How MOS Burger Got It’s Name
MOS stands for Mountain, Ocean, and Sun. It means “standing tall and firm like a Mountain, having a heart that is broad and deep as Ocean, and having passion like the Sun that never burns out.” That is our founder’s never-ending love for human beings and nature.
From MOS of Japan to MOS of the world
