With existing franchisees who are hoteliers already taking a bite out of success, it’s clear that TMAD knows how to whip up the perfect brick-and-mortar addition for any business portfolio’s menu.
Teriyaki Madness, the rapidly-growing fast casual teriyaki concept with over 125 shops (and counting!), is on the prowl for seasoned hoteliers in key markets who are looking to come back for seconds by diversifying their business portfolio. With some TMAD franchisees already mixing hospitality know-how and mad teriyaki skills, it’s no wonder hoteliers are itching to grab a piece of this flavor-packed opportunity and join the teriyaki takeover.
“We’ve seen firsthand the success that our hotelier franchisees have achieved by adding a little TMAD magic to their portfolios,” said Teriyaki Madness CEO Michael Haith. “It’s time for other savvy hoteliers to dive into the Madness!”
Rahul Patel, a Teriyaki Madness franchisee in Dayton, OH, and hotelier, dishes on his experience: “I wanted to diversify my portfolio. If we were going to go into the restaurant business, it was going to be with Teriyaki Madness. TMAD stood out to me because it is a simple concept that is growing with healthier food and good portions.”
Another successful hotelier and Teriyaki Madness franchisee, Darshak Patel of Sioux Falls, SD, says: “The food is a different concept, it is what the people want, fresh and healthy. From top to bottom, everyone at the corporate office treats me like an equal. Having had no prior restaurant experience it was important to me to know I will be supported fully. Teriyaki Madness has done that to the fullest.”
As one of fastest-growing franchises in the U.S., Teriyaki Madness is clearly doing something right. With a proven business model, unmatched support, innovative technology and a streamlined staff model — with an average of 3-6 employees needed per shift and a total of 12-20 employees typically on payroll — the brand makes an attractive, brick-and-mortar addition to any hotelier’s business portfolio. Not to mention the focus on delivering high-quality, customizable and healthier food options. All in all, it’s kind of a no-brainer.
In the first quarter, Teriyaki Madness opened shops in New York City; Cypress, TX; Fort Collins, CO; and Longview, TX; and signed deals for a total of 17 new shops. Existing shops (open for 12 or more months) also saw a notable 3.97% increase in AUVs (Average Unit Volume) Q1 YOY, plus 2.2% increase in SSS (Same Store Sales) Q1 YOY.
Looking to the remainder of the year, the brand is targeting the greater San Francisco, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Houston, Chicago, and Dallas areas, as well as northern New Jersey up through Massachusetts and of course open nationwide.
“We’re on a mission to spread teriyaki happiness far and wide, and we’re looking for hoteliers with a passion for delicious food and a hunger for growth to join our takeover,” said Haith. “We’ve seen tremendous success in the first quarter, and there’s no stopping us now. If you’re a hotelier who’s ready to bowl-dly go where smart hoteliers have gone before, the time has never been better to invest in Teriyaki Madness.”
