ABOUT US

Maido! was founded in 2003 by Seiko Dailey and is the only Japanese-owned grocery store in the Greater Philadelphia area. We opened our first store in Narberth, and we moved to Ardmore to expand our store.

 

We focus on bringing you the experience of visiting Japan, from our eat-in lunch counter where we serve authentic Okonomiyaki, Yaki-soba, and other Japanese meals, to our selection of Japanese toys, and fresh produce.

 

Stop by and enjoy a great meal while watching a live sumo tournament beamed from Japan by satellite! You don't have to speak Japanese... but we'll help you learn!

Our name comes from the greeting often heard in the Kansai Region of western Japan (Osaka, Kyoto, Kobe). "Maido!" could literally translate as "every time", but in the Kansai region it is used as a friendly greeting to your best customers and more closely translates as "Nice to see you again!" When combined with the Osaka-dialect for thank you ("Maido okini") it translates as "Thank you for your continued patronage".
