FP HOTELS Grand South-Namba - Street Food Village Open!


Osaka, Japan: Inbound land operator FREEPLUS, (hereafter referred to as “we”) has, in the car parking of our FP HOTELS Grand South-Namba, collaborated with Replace Inc. (also based in Osaka, hereafter referred to as “Replace”) to develop and open a “STAND 3.0” street food village. This has been achieved through Replace’s service in matching street food vendors to available locations. Approximately 90% of the guests at FP HOTELS Grand South-Namba are international tourists, leading to the development of an inbound focused street food marketplace, in an unused parking lot outside the hotel. The goal is to continue the growth of night-time inbound-focused economic activity in Osaka, specifically the Nishinari area.

With a STAND 3.0 food cart, low cost quality street food is possible. Staffing can be as few as a single college student. We have ambitions to take the model abroad in the future.
