Teriyaki Madness has landed itself a spot on the 39th annual Entreprenuer magazine Franchise 500® list for the second consecutive year. Ranking at No. 490, Entrepreneur praised TMAD for its exceptional performance in many key areas.
Following a year of strong national growth in 2017, Teriyaki Madness landed a spot on the 39th annual Entrepreneur magazine Franchise 500® list, for its second consecutive year. The thriving fast casual restaurant known for its Seattle-style teriyaki, big bowls of flavorful food and famous “chorks” is ranked No. 490 overall.
Entrepreneur ranked Teriyaki Madness on its list for exceptional performance across a number of key areas, including financial strength and stability, size, growth rate and brand strength. Currently operating in 16 states, Teriyaki Madness will be opening in five additional states in 2018.
“We spend months gathering and crunching data in order to produce the Franchise 500® ranking. We’re proud of the result and the way it continues to be a resource for the franchise community,” says Jason Feifer, Editor in Chief of Entrepreneur. “Like every industry, franchising is ever-evolving and must smartly react to new technologies and consumer demands. We know it takes a lot to stay competitive, and are excited to celebrate those that do it best.”
Franchising since 2005, Teriyaki Madness has a restaurant model with industry-leading, proven franchisee profitability and plans to open more than 100 locations across the United States in the next five years, including store deals in the Dallas-Fort Worth, Los Angeles and Miami areas. Each shop is individually owned and operated by people with diverse sets of backgrounds that turn their operations into successful establishments.
“We have our dedicated team to thank for our growth over the past year. Their tenacity and drive to succeed is incredible, and the recognition we’re receiving from Entrepreneur is a direct result of their hard work,” said Michael Haith, CEO of Teriyaki Madness. “We’re honored and thrilled to be recognized for the second consecutive year as a top franchise in America alongside such esteemed companies.”
With 45 percent of households consuming food with teriyaki at least once per month, Teriyaki Madness is becoming a leader in the Asian fast casual segment.
We are excited to announce that Teriyaki Madness franchisee’s, Phat Vu and Anne Cao, opened the first of three locations in the Houston area on Monday, February 5th. After finding out more about the restaurant franchise opportunities Teriyaki Madness had to offer, they were excited to bring the madness to Texas.
The store, located at 13410 Briar Forest had an exciting grand opening proving Houston is very welcoming to the madness.
The Asian grill concept is based on bowls that come with a choice of white, brown or fried rice or noodles with a choice of chicken, beef or tofu and steamed or stir-fried vegetables. The same choices for larger plates that also come with a side of macaroni salad or a green salad.
The meat options include chicken teriyaki, spicy chicken, chicken bread teriyaki, beef teriyaki and orange chicken, as well as a meatless tofu teriyaki. Chicken katsu and yakisoba noodles (beef, chicken, tofu or all-veggie) are other options.
Sauces include teriyaki sauce, katsu sauce, gyoza sauce, thick teriyaki, orange sauce, spicy sauce, sweet and sour, and stir-fry sauce.
The menu also includes appetizers such as fried eggrolls, edamame, crab Rangoon and chicken potstickers.
The new Teriyaki Madness is owned by Phat Vu and Anne Cao. The 1,400-square-foot restaurant can seat 65 people. It will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
The Spicy Chicken Power Bowl is expected to be a favorite among carb-watchers and bodybuilders who crave protein-rich dishes. The bowl’s 49 grams of protein and 11 grams of fiber are 100 percent of the recommended daily allowance of protein and 50 percent of daily fiber just in one meal, but the bowl is big enough to even make into two meals. The dish is loaded with the brand’s signature flavors, including fresh ginger, garlic, and pineapple juice, and is spiced up with chili garlic paste in addition to other secret ingredients.
The LTO is a takeoff on one of Teriyaki Madness’ most popular dishes, Spicy Chicken, which is served with teriyaki chicken wok-tossed in their signature spicy sauce, fresh stir-fried or steamed veggies and the customer’s choice of rice or noodles. The Spicy Chicken Power Bowl omits the carbs to make room for more veggies.
“Many health-conscious guests watching their carb intake already order our Spicy Chicken with veggies instead of rice or noodles, so we decided to add it as a special menu item,” said Teriyaki Madness CEO Michael Haith. “The Spicy Chicken Power Bowl is more flavor than fire. It’s a super addictive flavor with just a touch of heat that won’t burn your mouth – it just leaves you wanting more.”
Over the next four months, Teriyaki Madness is giving away free bowls for a year to six lucky winners. To be considered, consumers have to join Club Mad through their website or follow Teriyaki Madness on Facebook or Instagram. Each winner receives 24 free bowl vouchers to use throughout the year.
Teriyaki Madness, the fastest growing Asian restaurant concept in the nation, grants customers an authentic Seattle Teriyaki House experience. Big, bold bowls are what Teriyaki Madness is famous for, as guests customize their made-to-order entrees. Building a customer’s bowl of delicious flavors and ingredients starts with made-from-scratch sauces and various rice and noodle options, and then adding fresh-cut, stir-fried or steamed vegetables and quality proteins like all-natural, fresh chicken, beef or tofu.

TMAD’s very own Qing Hammel discusses overcoming your fears.
Inc.com discusses with TMAD Franchise Owner Qing Hammel the idea of fear in the entrepreneurial world, the best ways to face fear, and how to overcome it to find real success.
Deciding to become a Franchise Owner is often an intimidating prospect for many entrepreneurs, but as Qing admits you’re more than likely to hear that inner voice trying to make a positive change and make that leap.
Some things Qing kept wondering:
“Your career encounters a bottleneck and does not give you the desired opportunity to grow.
You do not feel challenged anymore in your current role.
Your procrastination results in the loss of opportunities, and you repeatedly tell yourself and others, “This is what I could/should have done.”
However the challenge to overcome these thoughts is tough, but Qing points to a Japanese proverb that has helped her in overcoming her fears,
“Fear is only a feeling of yours. You are the master of it. Take small but solid steps to face it, question it and, eventually, overcome it. Focus on your goal and go toward it. Something invaluable will be waiting for you along the journey–knowledge, skills, experience, wisdom, compassion, courage and confidence. It is a rewarding journey, and you will have fun.”
