CU Reveals ‘K-ramen Haven’ in Hongdae, Mapo-gu

A unique convenience store offering a diverse selection of over 200 ramen varieties has made its debut in Seoul.

Convenience store chain CU launched the industry’s inaugural ‘K-Ramen Specialty Convenience Store’, centring its theme around ramen – a product category that has been a driving force behind recent convenience store sales growth.

The store introduces the innovative concept of a “Ramen Library”, showcasing an extensive collection of more than 100 popular domestic and international instant noodles. This surpasses the average number of bagged ramen products found in typical convenience stores, which usually hovers around 30, making it three times more expansive.

In total, the store boasts an impressive 225 types of ramen, including 120 varieties of cup ramen – the widest ramen selection among convenience stores nationwide.
