About Ramen Hero

Ramen Hero home delivers authentic Japanese ramen accessible to all Americans no matter where they live, or who they are.

It all started when Ramen Hero founder, Hiro Hasegawa, noticed he couldn’t find authentic ramen in the US like back in Japan. So he decided to do something about it. Ramen Hero is committed to spreading ramen love throughout the country, and years from now will be known as the brand that made real ramen a permanent part of American culture. Ramen Hero gives everyday Americans a chance to enjoy authentic ramen that’s easy to order, make and brings families and friends together.

We created the first Honkaku (authentic) ramen meal kit, introducing authentic ramen to the US market. The company is part of the AngelPad accelerator program and is venture-backed.

This is the perfect role for someone who wants to take ownership and build a core growth strategy, build a team from scratch and manage it. If you are passionate about ramen, building a consumer brand, creating something that no one has ever achieved before, you might be a good fit at Ramen Hero. Let’s build a company that makes high-quality ramen accessible to everyone in the world together.
