In 1986, the first MK Suki welcomed its customers for the first time at Central Plaza, Ladprao branch. As not so many restaurants had such a clear position to offer suki menu at that time, the concept of MK restaurant was warmingly received by customers. The introduction of sophisticated restaurant management techniques and marketing strategies to run the business led the Company to consistently expand new branches in both Bangkok and other provinces.

MK Restaurant Group Public Company Limited (the “Company”) was incorporated on July 10, 1989, with an initial capital of Baht 1 million to operate suki restaurants. Aside from this, the Company started opening Japanese restaurants under the “Yayoi” brand and trademark in 2006. In October 2012, the Company operated two more Japanese restaurants under two different trademarks of “Hakata” and “Miyazaki”. The Company also runs Thai restaurant business under “Na Siam” and “Le Siam” trademarks, grab and go shop under “Bizzy Box” trademark, dessert shop under “MK Harvest” trademark as well as a coffee shop and bakery outlet known as “Le Petit.” Finally, we have our own training institute to train qualif ied service personnel. In addition, in late 2019 the Company invested in 65% of shares in Laem Charoen Seafood Company Limited which operates Laem Charoen Seafood restaurants.

As of December 31, 2021, the Company boasted 452 MK Suki Restaurants (including 5 MK Gold Restaurants and 4 MK Live); 193 Yayoi Japanese restaurants; 31 Laem Charoen Seafood restaurants; 2 Hakata Japanese restaurants; 15 Miyazaki Japanese restaurants; 3 Le Siam Thai restaurants; 1 Na Siam Thai restaurant; 3 Bizzy Box shops and 3 Le Petit coffee shop and bakery nationwide.
