TMAD Franchisees Want More!

TMAD Franchisees Want More!

Longtime franchisee recognized the time to grow and expand his shops by 50% into the Arizona market!

 

TMAD Franchise

Arnaldo Gomez (who became a franchisee in 2005) recognized that now is the time to grow their TMAD Franchise! After successfully owning and operating four shops in Las Vegas, he ventured into the Arizona market and acquired two more locations (and wants to expand even more!)

Many other Teriyaki Madness shop owners see this as the perfect time to expand and grow their own shop footprint. During this time, real estate retro-fit opportunities are opening up which offer great locations at a great price!

Retro-fit locations are great for prospective franchisees to open quicker with a lower build out cost and overall investment. Current franchisees are able to expand faster and grow their territories to multiple shops. 

In recent weeks, TMAD sales have been on an upward trajectory, on some days even beating same-store sales numbers from last year, long before the coronavirus crisis was keeping customers out of restaurants across the country. TMAD has held seven Grand Openings in seven states within the past month. 

In a time where markets have seen a crash, Teriyaki Madness pivoted and used this time to hit the ground running.  

According to RestaurantNews.com, “Teriyaki Madness’s success during a time of unprecedented difficulty for most restaurants has not gone unnoticed. Customers are demanding TMAD! As a result, the brand has seen an influx of interest from prospective franchisees and has already signed four new franchise owners in the 60 days since the onset of the crisis.”

Through the use of tactful marketing campaigns and skillful Real Estate development, TMAD is seeing massive growth. 

Now is the perfect time to seize the opportunity for growth and invest in your own TMAD franchise!

Teriyaki Madness Performs Better than Pre-COVID Sales Levels and Far Exceeds Competitor Sales in the Fast Casual Industry!

Throughout the pandemic, the average shop sales for TMAD have outperformed competitor sales in the fast casual and full-service segments.  The chart below is based on industry data from Black Box and tracks the change in average shop sales over the last few months. In this chart, Teriyaki Madness is the red line, the average for fast casual restaurants is the blue line, and the average for full-service restaurants is the gray line. You can see that for all but one week, our average sales have consistently outperformed the other segments. And we believe that this trend will continue going strong!
According to Joe Cohen, VP of Finance at Teriaki Madness, ” We’re performing better than our own pre-COVID sales levels both systemwide and on an average same-store-sales basis. Throughout the pandemic, the average shop sales for TMAD have out-performed our competitors in the fast casual and full-service segments (June sales up 16% year over year). We believe that the strong results that we are collectively achieving come from being adaptable and playing offense.”
Competitor Sales
Throughout the TMAD system, whether it was our teams here in the Denver office or the franchisees in the shops, we didn’t just throw up our hands when the pandemic struck. Instead, we collectively buckled down and got after it. That includes creating and deploying the Pay it Forward boxes, Family Meal Bundles, Curbside and makeshift Drive-Thrus. Franchisees embraced these new tools and made the most of them.
As customers began working remotely during COVID, lunch sales dropped, but dinner sales far exceeded expectations, making up for the drop.

According to Cohen, “Through the pandemic, we’ve outperformed both our competition and, remarkably, our history. While our business has grown, it is shaped a little differently than before which is cause for optimism as when we fill in the holes in our lunch and catering businesses, we can drive sales even higher.”

According to RestaurantNews.com, “Teriyaki Madness’s success during a time of unprecedented difficulty for most restaurants has not gone unnoticed. Customers are demanding TMAD!

Teriyaki Madness Launches Company to Manage Day-to-Day Operations for Semi-Absentee and Absentee Franchisees!

Restaurant Management

 

Teriyaki Madness has launched an affiliated restaurant management company — Restaurant Sherpas — as a  solution for absentee and semi-absentee franchisees across the nation.

Whether you’re a multi-unit operator pursuing a larger footprint, an entrepreneur who doesn’t want to quit your day job or working toward investor visas like EB-5, E2 and L-1 immigrant investment programs, the company is an option for handling business on-site needs.

Teriyaki Madness CEO, Michael Haith said, “We created Restaurant Sherpas as a means of harnessing our operational expertise to provide our franchise partners with a reliable solution at the unit level that meets them where they want to be as far as day-to-day involvement is concerned. The role Restaurant Sherpas plays is tailor-made to each of our partners, and franchisees can be as involved as they choose. We’re excited about the opportunity this presents for even more entrepreneurs to get involved with Teriyaki Madness as we continue to grow across North America.”

The restaurant management executives will help franchise partners execute everything from site selection, construction oversight and recruiting, hiring and training, to the ongoing daily operations.

Haith said, “Restaurant Sherpas acts as multi-unit leadership, hiring the General Manager and making sure the team and the shop consistently meet and/or exceed the brand guidelines laid out in the franchise agreement. The team ensures the shop is run efficiently, profitably and to the franchisees specifications. We currently have two corporate-owned Teriyaki Madness shops using Restaurant Sherpas as well as FirstPathway Partners and Globofran, two companies that help foreign investors achieve business ownership through the EB-5 and E2 visa programs. In addition to being immigration investment-friendly and an extremely viable option for multi-unit operators, we’re confident this versatile, first-of-its-kind offering will attract even more qualified franchise owners to our ever-growing system.”

TMAD Puts Food Back on the Tables of Restaurant Workers!

TMAD Puts Food Back on the Tables of Restaurant Workers!

Introducing: The Four-Top!

Foodservice

TMAD has been helping put food on the tables at a reduced cost for foodservice workers laid off as a result of COVID-19.

According to RestaurantNews.com, “An estimated 5.5 million restaurant workers — nearly two thirds of the entire industry — have lost their jobs as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and even as states begin to reopen, the vast majority of those industry professionals remain out of work. In recent months, fan-favorite teriyaki-shop franchise Teriyaki Madness has been one of the few foodservice businesses to not only survive, but thrive during the COVID-19 crisis, retaining employees and reaching customers even as dining rooms were ordered closed. Now, the growing brand is paying its success forward by lending a hand to fellow industry workers who were laid off as a result of the pandemic.”

The Four-Top is ensuring that industry collegues have access to delicious meals that can feed a family of four or one person for four meals. For just $26, The Four-Top includes two appetozers and four bowls customized to the cravings of the customers. 

CEO Michael Haith says, “We realize we’re in a unique position to give back right now. Our industry is struggling, and it’s the workers who have been hit hardest. We want to do whatever we can to make their lives a little easier during this difficult chapter.”

The Four-Top campaign comes after the Pay-It-Forward campaign which asked customers to team up with TMAD to split the cost of meals for healthcare workers. Since that campaign launched, Teriyaki Madness and its fans have provided more than 4,000 meals to healthcare professionals across the country.

Out-of-work foodservice professionals can order the Four-Top now through Teriyaki Madness’s website and mobile app. The franchise is committed to finding new ways to support local communities and provide fans with comforting, customizable meals that restore a much-needed sense of reliability and satisfaction as we come out of this crisis.

TMAD Franchisee featured in Franchise Consultant Magazine for Making the Most of His Time Through a Pandemic!

Franchise Consultant

TMAD franchisee, Aaron Weissman has been featured in Franchise Consultant Magazine for making the most of his time through COVID-19. 

Despite closing his dining room, Aaron was able to keep his business running and his staff busy. When the pandemic hit, instead of making the decision to lay off his 25 employees, he put them to work feeding the local front-line heroes and even redecorating his dining room.

“It was a fun change of pace for everyone and a great way to take advantage of our closed doors. I was planning to redecorate anyway, so the timing was perfect.”

Because of TMAD’s commitment to technology in recent years, food sales for Weissman stayed strong during the crisis. 

“There was a steady stream of business coming in with take-out orders. Since we already had these systems in place, we didn’t have to change too much like some other businesses did.”

CEO, Michael Haith, believes the company’s ability to stay ahead of COVID-19 is due to our forward thinking. Long before the pandemic, Haith set TMAD up for success by always thinking ahead. 

Haith attributes the company’s success to:

  • Technology – by making major investments in technology, franchisees were able to stay ahead of COVID-19 with apps that allowed easy ordering and curbside pick-up services.
  • Efficiency – Working smarter, not harder is key to TMAD’s success. Always looking for better and easier ways to reduce labor and increase profits, the company made investments to make tasks like dish washing and chopping vegetables more efficient.
  • Customer First – Haith believes in giving customers what they want: quality food that’s healthy, delicious and convenient. He uses incentives like loyalty programs to drive repeat business.

It’s safe to say that both TMAD corporate and franchisees are using their time and effort wisely during a crisis.
