Local residents Scott and Denise Lingeman to grow presence of Seattle-style teriyaki restaurant in The Shops at Wiregrass in Wesley Chapel, Florida—the first of two locations for the Tampa area.
This October, Scott and Denise Lingeman are bringing the madness to The Tampa area with the opening of the newest Teriyaki Madness in Wesley Chapel on September 25. The Seattle-style teriyaki restaurant will offer huge, satisfying bowls of addicting flavors made with high-quality ingredients like all-natural marinated chicken, steak, salmon or tofu with fresh, stir-fried veggies and a base of Yakisoba noodles or steamed white, brown or fried rice.
The new shop is located at 28152 Paseo Drive, Unit 160 in Wesley Chapel, Florida and is one of the storefronts at The Shops at Wiregrass outdoor shopping mall.
The Lingemans are inviting locals (and non-locals, because they love you too!) out to celebrate the Teriyaki Madness grand opening with events beginning September 30 through October 5. The schedule of events and primary giveaways are included below:
- September 30: This Sneak Peek training event gives customers the chance to try Teriyaki Madness’ famous chicken teriyaki bowls for FREE! The first 100 people in between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. will be offered a free entrée with the option to purchase drinks for $1 and appetizers for $2. This is a training exercise open to the public before officially being open for business.
- October 2 – October 4: In-shop customers get a special deal on $5 Junior and Regular Chicken Teriyaki Bowls.
- October 3: The Grand Opening Celebration Event kicks off at 11 a.m. and the first five customers who order an entrée will win free bowls for a year, while the next 20 customers who order an entrée will win free bowls for a month.
- October 5: $1 from every regular bowl purchased will be donated to the American Red Cross’ Hurricane Dorian relief efforts in the Bahamas.
The Lingemans joined Teriyaki Madness as a way for Scott to transition out of his 35-year career as a commercial airline pilot. The brand offered the Lingemans a business model and corporate support system that provided Scott with both a better quality of life and a new income stream to retire more comfortably. They also loved Teriyaki Madness’ made-to-order bowls that are built fresh when a customer places an order for the best possible quality meal.
“The customizability means it can be as healthy or as indulgent as you want it to be,” said Scott. “There’s really nothing like this in the Tampa area.”
While some Floridians are already familiar with Teriyaki Madness, the Lingemans intend to drive brand buzz throughout Florida. “In addition to this location, we have one that is currently under construction in Clearwater that’s going to open later this year,” said Scott. “We’re trying to bring brand awareness up in Florida because people are already really excited about it.”
“In the past decade, we have been growing at a rapid pace, introducing mouthwatering, bold-flavors in new communities, and we are ecstatic to be opening up our first shop in Wesley Chapel,” said Teriyaki Madness CEO Michael Haith. “Scott and Denise 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 and drive success in the state while Teriyaki Madness continues to expand beyond Wesley Chapel and throughout Florida.”
