Sylvester worked in the military for 27 years. He also worked as a safety specialist at Chevron while Shadia worked in banking for 20 years. When they were relocated to the Greater Houston area, they both wanted to look at additional opportunities to balance their portfolio. That’s when a franchise consultant introduced them to Teriyaki Madness and they signed on to open three locations. The Johns were most impressed with the brand’s rapid growth, even during the pandemic, in addition to the build-your-own bowl concept that allows meals to be as healthy as the customers want them. In early 2020 before the pandemic, the couple took ownership of a shop in Round Rock, TX. Despite the difficulties of shutdowns, they led the shop to record-breaking sales. Katy, TX will be their second shop with the third slated to open later in 2021.
“Teriyaki Madness is a fast-growing brand that offers quality, innovative food options,” Sylvester said. “In addition, the profit margin really appealed to us and we knew we could reach our financial goals with this brand.”
“In the past decade, we have been growing at a rapid pace, introducing bold flavors in new communities. We are ecstatic to be opening up our ninth Texas shop in Katy and our 100th location for the brand,” said Teriyaki Madness CEO Michael Haith. “The Johns are wonderful members of our franchise family and we are so excited to watch and support them as they champion the brand’s entry into this new market. Sylvester and Shadia will surely drive success in the state as Teriyaki Madness continues to expand beyond Katy and throughout Texas.”
