I know what はじめまして means. It means, pleased / nice to meet you. When reading Manga at school to learn these expressions, I see the phrase quite often.
But there was one Manga where I saw the phrase, いらっしゃいます。What does this phrase mean? From the Manga, I think it means welcome but does it mean that, or is it more specific; for example, something like welcome home or welcome to this place of some sort. The Manga featured a guy saying this idiom to guests walking into a restaurant.
Please let me know so I understand.
Thank you in advance.
