Wagamama is best known for bringing an authentic but affordable Japanese-inspired dishes to the UK. Founded by restaurateur Alan Yau, wagamama began in London in 1992. The chain has spent the best part of the last 25 years putting its own unique spin on Japanese food and Japanese culture. It is also a brand that has enjoyed a remarkably steady rise, with over 140 Wagamama restaurants now operating across the world.
Serving a diverse and distinctly aromatic menu of everything from classic ramen and noodles to seafood, tender meats and delicately spiced vegan dishes, Wagamama offers an extensive and exhaustive menu that truly provides something for everyone. The company operates on the philosophy of “Kaizen,” which translates to “good change.” This means that Wagamama as a brand believes in continuous improvement. The name itself is derived from the Japanese for “naughty child.” So it’s certainly not a brand that takes itself too seriously either, which is probably why it has found itself a favoured dining establishment of many British teenagers, who yearn for something a little more exciting than Pizza Hut or Nando’s.
In building the Wagamama brand, Alan Yau, who was also behind the Hakkasan restaurant brand, was primarily inspired by the ramen bars found in every busy high street in Japan. He also wanted to create a brand that would stand the test of time and would be enjoyed by people from all walks of life. The result is an affordable experience, turning out quick, but quick but freshly prepared food made to order, in a friendly egalitarian way of dining, appealing to the social nature of many modern teens. This makes the brand a perfect partner for Teen Choice, and it’s just one of many national retail chains where our Teen Choice gift cards can be spent.
Why Choose Teen Choice?
The clue is in the title. What a Teen Choice gift card offers is just that; a choice for teens. We all know that shopping for gifts can be exhausting and confusing, especially when shopping for teenagers! Gift cards are often a safe bet, but most gift cards only offer a certain degree of choice as they are locked to one store or one brand. Teen Choice gift cards, however, can be used at many different national retail chains that are popularly used and enjoyed by teenagers. Whether catching a coffee at Costa or a film at the local ODEON, there’s no such thing as a bad choice.
Our gift cards can be purchased online and pre-loaded with a set amount chosen by you; as much as £200 or as little as £10. So, whether it’s a big Christmas present, a small birthday treat or somewhere in between, the amounts are flexible enough to offer a solution to any situation. Using your Teen Choice gift card is also remarkably hassle-free. You can use your card as you would any debit or credit card, with the balance deducted from the card ready to be used again. Truly, the perfect gift for any situation.
