The food retail industry is facing the challenges of sluggish sales due to declining regional populations and aging stores, as well as rising costs such as personnel and electricity costs, making business difficult. In addition to these cost burdens, in addition to investment in updating aging store equipment, investment in
replacement of freezing and refrigeration equipment due to the complete elimination of R22 refrigerant, and investment in systems for handling invoices, investments related to system changes will be made. is required. However, as we are busy taking immediate steps to ensure profits, we are unable to secure investment budgets and resources, and are now in an even more difficult situation.
Zen Nippon Shokuhin has supported member stores in making use of subsidies, but due to a lack of resources and know-how, the amount of subsidies that could be supported was limited.
In response to similar issues faced by franchised stores, All Nippon Shokuhin is using subsidies to encourage franchised stores to make capital investments, and from providing support centered on
maintaining and expanding sales, to improving management. With the aim of expanding our support to include profit generation that will lead to growth, we have introduced the “Subsidy Cloud” and entered into a partnership with Stayway for management support.
Overview of the partnership between Stayway and Zennippon Shokuhin With the introduction of “Subsidy Cloud” and the partnership between the two companies, we have jointly held subsidy seminars for member stores to increase awareness and interest in subsidies that can be used for capital investment. We have also set up a subsidy
consultation desk to respond to inquiries from member stores. As a result, we have seen an increase in inquiries from franchised stores regarding the use of subsidies, and discussions about the use of subsidies have become more active in daily interactions between All Japan Foods supervisors and franchised stores. We are making progress in building a management support system centered on . In fact, Family Store Miyatora, a member store of the All Nippon Shokuryo chain, has been strengthening its efforts with the aim of further expanding its support, including the adoption of an IT introduction subsidy. -System Chart-

About Family Store Miyatora’s IT introduction subsidy selection Family Store Miyatora, a member store of the All-Nippon Foods chain on Shikinejima in Tokyo, was selected for the “IT Implementation Subsidy 2023″ (digitalization infrastructure implementation framework third deadline (deadline: June 2, 2023)). Ta. Until now, Family Store Miyatora had not been able to implement the Zennihon Shokudo chain’s POS system, so they often had to deal with things like analyzing sales trends and placing orders outside of the system, which took time. In order to resolve these issues, strengthen the product lineup that meets the needs of Shikine Island residents and tourists, and streamline operations such as ordering, we applied for and received a subsidy for the introduction of POS for the Zennikka chain. it was done.
In the future, we will promote further utilization of subsidies by member stores.
Going forward, All Nippon Shokuhin and Stayway will further expand and strengthen the management support of All Nippon Shokuryo chain member stores using subsidies, which have led to results through their initiatives. In addition, Zennippon Shokuhin is working to achieve the “restoration of local commerce” by pooling the wisdom of its peers to solve problems that cannot be solved by individual chains or individual stores. We aim to solve the management issues of the food retail industry by supporting Zennikka chain member stores using subsidies.

Therefore, in order to expand support for member stores, we incorporated Stayway’s knowledge of subsidies and grants to create a system that can provide financial support.

At the suggestion of a store manager at Zennippon Shokuhin, we came up with the idea of “Let’s take advantage of the IT introduction subsidy when introducing Zennihon Shokuhin POS!” This was the first attempt at an IT introduction subsidy for an All Japan Foods member store, but thanks to the follow-up from the Stayway staff and All Japan Foods staff, as well as collaboration with the local Chamber of Commerce and Industry, I was able to apply without any problems. Doing. I was really happy that I was able to use the subsidy to install POS. Our store “Family Store Miyatora” is located in the middle of Shikinejima, which can be reached in about 3 hours by high-speed jet boat from Tokyo. We would like to make use of the Zennichi Shokudo chain’s POS to create a store that is even more loved on Shikinejima.
