How Long Would You Wait?

Two hours - the typical length of a motion picture or a train ride from one coast of Japan to the other. Meet our dedicated fans at the Otomesando Hills shopping center in Japan, who wait an average of two hours for our sweet treats.

These long lines are not an unfamiliar sight for our KuKuRuZa employees who have seen these 2 hour waits from open to close since the store opened in September 2013. To increase the efficiency of these lines and to reduce confusion, or Tokyo store even has an employee at the end of the line with a sign to indicate where KuKuRuZa customers should begin their wait.
