Motto Motto



Motto Motto was born out of the kitchen of one of Australia’s most awarded Japanese Restaurants, Sono.

We take the best parts of traditional Japanese fine dining and reimagine them in a casual, contemporary restaurant environment to deliver a truly unique food experience.

As a Motto Motto owner operator, you will not only get to be a part of a unique brand but benefit from a new age and compelling franchise product that is built on doing franchising differently.



Starting from $500,000 + working capital.

5 years + 5 years.

We provide automatic franchise term renewals.

Prominent location.

Attractive lease offer.



Motto Motto Grade is the philosophy by which we define ourselves each and every day. It’s a new standard in food, the relentless passion to be better, to achieve more, to be a cut above.

From the premium ingredients in our kitchen, to the beautifully crafted signature dishes we lovingly serve – like our cooked to order premium grade wagyu beef, sashimi grade salmon, tuna and kingfish and our famous ramen super broth.


Motto means more.



Motto Motto has a strong visual identity and an excellent marketing program. The marketing team engages talented creative agencies to assist in promoting the brand and drive customer engagement.
