Ramen Ray is a family-owned ramen shop located in Indianapolis. Having a take-away packaging provides ramen lovers the most convenient way to take ramen home. The exterior of the to-go box is a large photo of a bowl of ramen, bold brush style text, and iconic Ramen Ray yellow texture background. Different than most American food, a bowl of ramen has three components (noodles, topping, and broth). Ramen Ray’s to-go container is three small ceramic-like plastic bowls and a detachable cardboard box, with a handle. When packing food for the customer, the three small plastic bowls can be stacked on top of each other inside the box. Along the sides of the interior of the cardboard box, are the chopsticks.
The cardboard box can secure ramen bowls during transportation.
