A word that holds much meaning for so many people.
Blu Jam Cafe has called Tokyo home for two years. Chef Kamil Majer, founder of the original Los Angeles branch crafted a menu and philosophy truly fit for anyone. It adorns options not so easily found in the city – vegan, gluten-free, vegetarian, to mention a few.
Blu Jam Cafe Japan aims to bring a small slice of home to Tokyo. The Blu Jam staff culture is always warm and they are often connecting with guests as if they’ve known them forever. Casual, friendly, and inviting; Blu Jam Cafe Japan brings a touch of West Coast to Daikanyama.
As we jump into the new year, we wanted to hear from Blu Jam Cafe on their success – establishing not only a fabulous customer base in Japan but also creating a wonderful atmosphere for their employees – and in such a short time!
What would be your number one recommendation for people who want to start their own business?
In starting a business, we feel it is paramount to understand and immerse ourselves in the community at large.
What are the 3 essentials for running a business in your opinion?
I would say the three essentials are…
- Building partnerships
- Being open for new opportunities
Keeping the lights on means getting to know people. Networking and business go hand-in-hand, and in two years we’ve formed partnerships with several organizations as a venue for events and gatherings. Tokyo is home to 9.2 million people and everyone you meet can potentially open paths to different opportunities.
What are your top resources when it comes to running your business on an everyday basis?
Perhaps the most indispensable resource we have at Blu Jam Cafe is our staff. People that love what they do show it in their work, through their work. From our chefs, servers to our managers, we do our best to share our piece of home with everyone who walks through our doors.
