The day has three main purposes:

• For the Teriyaki Madness Executive Team to make final approval of you and your application.

• For you to receive a deeper understanding of our business model, spend time with the team, and visit a teriyaki shops to make the decision if Teriyaki Madness is a good fit for you.
