It’s really no surprise that we made the Inc. 5000 list…
Inc. Magazine finally released their annual Inc. 5000 list ranking the nation’s fastest-growing private companies and of course, TMAD made the list!
According to Inc. 5000, “For decades, Inc. has welcomed the fastest-growing private companies in America, and this year’s set of winners places the bar very high indeed. Companies that made the list, on average, have grown sixfold since 2015. During a stretch when the economy grew just 12 percent, that’s a result most businesses could only dream of.”
Ranking in at #2304, Teriyaki Madness was recognized for our sizable growth, strong revenue and impressive leadership team!
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. Editor in Chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
This year, TMAD’s ranking grew an impressive amount from ranking in at #3723 in 2018 to #2304 in 2019!

CEO Michael Haith Talks Teriyaki on QSR’s Fast Forward Podcast
TMAD CEO Michael Haith was featured on QSR Magazine’s Fast Forward Podcast for the irreverent, left of center brand culture that defines Teriyaki Madness.
Michael said, “People are … getting beyond the burgers and sandwiches and the pizza, which they’ve become accustomed to. I think there’s a migration to new flavors and Asian flavors, especially. I think people are starting to eat healthier. And TMAD is definitely healthier.”
Teriyaki Madness has become the reigning champ of the Asian food category and quickly dethroned other unhealthy Asian brands in the process.
According to QSR, “Teriyaki Madness is one such emerging brand that is attempting to challenge Panda’s Asian category throne. The Seattle-style teriyaki franchise was founded in Las Vegas in 2004, and has since grown to more than 50 locations across the U.S., with as many as 80 expected by the end of the year.
Michael Haith, who acquired Teriyaki Madness from its founders in 2012 after leading foodservice businesses like Maui Wowi and Doc Popcorn, says Americans are ready for different culinary styles than what dominates today. “
The brand is ready to cancel out the noise and position themselves for fans to identify with the culture!
