Banking group Resona Holdings Inc. has tied up with restaurant chain Yoshinoya D&C Co. and may set up automated teller machines at its restaurants in the future, according to Resona officials.

Resona is now pursuing a strategy of opening branches and setting up ATMs in places that can attract many people, the officials said.

Yoshinoya, which has been suffering from dwindling sales since it stopped serving its mainstay “gyudon” beef-on-rice dishes in February, signed the tieup to receive commissions from Resona in exchange for providing information about its outlets.
