About this project
Globalize ramen culture by making quality ramen accessible to all.
How delicious does a piping hot bowl of miso ramen sound right about now? Imagine a steaming bowl with flavorful broth, chewy noodles, and the most decadent toppings. Can’t you just smell its aroma wafting over toward you? That sure sounds great, but setting aside hours of your day to prepare all of it probably doesn’t. Let Ramen Hero take care of that for you.
When you order a Ramen Hero kit, everything you need to make that lush bowl of ramen is shipped right to your door. We’ve preboiled the broth for hours, handpicked the toppings, and packed the noodles for you. Ingredients come sealed, fresh, and refrigerated. The only thing that’s missing is your appetite! And the best part is: all you need to do is assemble the ingredients, add your favorite vegetables, and enjoy!
ABOUT RAMEN HERO
Ramen Hero was founded in 2016 by Hiro and Kei.
Hiro is the chef and CEO. He is a living, breathing ramen database who has eaten at nearly every ramen shop in Japan. He is an alum of a prominent ramen school in Japan and his favorite ramen is clear shoyu ramen. Kei is the COO and business brains behind Ramen Hero. He enjoys a good beer before diving into a bowl of ramen. His favorite kind of ramen is thick tonkotsu ramen.
When Kei and Hiro met, a bond formed over their shared love for ramen and budding aspiration to bring that appreciation to ramen lovers everywhere. Naturally, a business plan came shortly after. Though their plans for ramen world domination can only be reached with help from backers like you!
THE RAMEN HERO RECIPE
When you back a tier that includes a shipment of our signature recipe, here is what it includes:
- Pre-boiled broth, the base of our creamy chicken paitan
- Braised, seasoned chicken wing
- Pre-cut sheets of nori
- Fresh noodles
- Menma (bamboo shoots)
Additional toppings are not included. That part is left up to your interpretation, desires, or probably what's available in your fridge :) See photo of our kit's contents below:
HOW WE WILL USE THE CONTRIBUTIONS
Your contributions will be put toward ramen recipe research and development. They will allow us to purchase additional ingredients as well as enable us to purchase and upgrade our kitchen equipment. With the additional capital, we will be able to accommodate higher demand and help to expand beyond the San Francisco Bay Area. A portion of the funds will also be put toward business services such as branding and package design.
Additionally, for us to offer reasonably priced ramen, we need to make sure that we have an initial customer base so we hope to reach as many potential backers as possible!
Risks and challenges
To our backers: we want you to know that we have thought long and hard about accounting for fulfillment and shipping.
One thing we want to be very clear about is the fact that we cannot ship our meal kits outside of the state of California, USA. This is because our kits contain perishable food items that must arrive refrigerated. For our out-of-state fans... let's keep in touch! Thank you, we really appreciate your patience as we figure out how to scale our shipping!!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
