Company History

Kokoro is

Nestled in Kingston-upon-Thames, KOKORO started out as a small Korean-Japanese takeaway store, founded by Rak-Kyu Park so years ago. With only three tables available at the start, KOKORO has expanded into a booming franchise with 25 different locations in the UK. KOKORO’s success can be attributed to our customers’ appreciation for authentic and delicious meals, supported by good service through KOKORO’s reliable quality management in sourcing and packaging.

The key to success is very simple: you keep the food tasty, fresh, and healthy. The hard part is how you do it and how you maintain it. KOKORO in Japanese translates to heart, mind or soul. These are the most important ingredients in KOKORO’s food.
