Last year, we rolled with the punches and came out better than ever. In 2020, TMAD:
- Established a jaw-dropping 31 new locations, 25 of which opened during the pandemic
- Expanded its corporate team by 74%
- Saw a 44% increase in grand opening sales for locations that opened during COVID
There are no signs of stopping! TMAD topped off the year with several strong additions to the franchise team, boosting our overall footprint by 38% and paving the way to our goal of 1,000 shops in the next ten years. From the team that’s brought you quality bowls, exceptionally unique management options and a laugh now and then, we hope this year is as great for you as it will be for us!

Current shop owners are taking advantage of the strong portfolio of second generation locations that Teriyaki Madness currently has. Why? Because second generation sites empower owners to expand their Teriyaki Madness empire at a fraction of the price! As the brick and mortar purchase is one of the most significant steps in the buildout process, sites that have previously held restaurant concepts go a long way in mitigating the overall investment costs. TMAD’s second generation site portfolio consists of carefully-selected locations that meet our stringent spec requirements, and are available in states across the country!
This opportunity is especially ideal for potential franchisees looking for a low cost entry into absentee ownership. Combined with the turnkey management services offered by Restaurant Sherpas, there’s never been a better time to take your seat at the TMAD table.
Our franchisees are doubling and tripling down on Teriyaki Shops thanks to some of the strongest margins in the industry and our customized support structure. Don’t let them be the only ones to benefit— these sites make the overall investment costs a fraction of what they typically might be. Reach out for more info!
Hiren Dayaramani grew up in a household that valued entrepreneurship. It’s no surprise that he’s starting his own venture then, and we’re excited that it’s a Teriyaki Madness! He and Vishal Patel joined our rapidly-growing team together along with Hiren’s wife, Khushbu. The TMAD family just got bigger!
Hiren and Vishal both come from the hotel industry, managing teams in the dozens and operating locations that bring in millions every year. Throughout their careers, they’ve found that it’s important for employees to be as happy as customers and value a strong work-life balance. As accomplished operators in their own right, they’ll be looking to TMAD to amplify their abilities and provide the restaurant experience that will be critical in their success.
Hiren and Vishal were drawn to TMAD for our “constant growth in numbers,” which is something we pride ourselves on. That, and teriyaki of course. Recent milestones like an 18% increase in year over year Q3 sales, opening 30 shops and an Average Unit Volume of $1.15 mm has contributed greatly to the growth that attracts shop owners like Hiren and Vishal.
There are plenty more seats at the table for people like Hiren and Vishal. We sort of have to live up to this “constant growth” thing now, so let’s get down to business! Fill out the form below.
Jeff and Ondrea Gallagher own a building with an empty retail space that had a coffee tenant. When the pandemic took out the coffee shop, they realized how difficult it would be to find another tenant for their space. Realizing they could own their own business, pay themselves rent and realize a profit while Restaurant Sherpas did all the work, they explored Teriyaki Madness. Now, they have a Teriyaki Madness shop opening in their building and a team of professionals that will build, staff and run it for them thanks to Restaurant Sherpas, a management company for TMAD.
The Gallaghers are impressive new franchisees! Professional farmers in California, they saw a franchise in which they could diversify. Originally planning to open a single shop, they decided that three shops were more their speed after meeting the team on Discovery Day, seeing how far our support goes and the amazing success of the franchisees.
Restaurant Sherpas, the turnkey management service that runs TMAD shops in their entirety for absentee investors like the Gallaghers, was critical in their decision making. They weren’t sure what to do with one location, and now they’re confident they can manage three. Mostly because they don’t have to manage a single thing.
We’re extremely happy that we were able to help Jeff and Ondrea go beyond their goals, because no space should go unused and no would-be franchisees should let other commitments hold them back from opportunity.

Mayor Celino has been challenging himself since he came to the United States at age 12, working his way from an entry-level employee up to regional management and franchisee roles at several large restaurant chains. The most recent byproduct of his tremendous work ethic? Becoming a Teriyaki Madness franchisee!
With 30 years of operational experience and a sound understanding of franchising, Mayor has signed on for three shops in the San Jose area. He and his wife Maria are motivated to use their combined restaurant expertise to create a legacy for their children to step into, giving them a fantastic opportunity to succeed. In his own words, Mayor wants to create a “Teriyaki Madness empire.” That does have a nice ring to it.
“I will give 110% commitment to Teriyaki Madness, to make sure we’re providing the best service, products and meeting sales goals,” Mayor told TMAD.
We’re always looking for determined candidates who want to not only improve their lives, but the lives of the people around them. If that sounds like you, let’s talk about how to make it happen!
You’ve probably heard us say this before, but now others are saying it too! The results are in and Restaurant Sherpas has proven it can successfully operate a shop to its best potential. The first few shops run exclusively by the Sherpas team have progressed in leaps and bounds, with year-over-year sales up and operations running at max efficiency. Shop owners are happy, customers are happy, and now we’re happy that the industry is paying attention to our unique turnkey management offering.
“The Restaurant Sherpas-managed location in Wheat Ridge, for example, has mastered execution with a flatter ramp-up period due to a constant focus on profitability,” the article reads.
While Sherpas continues to impress its current investors, the seasoned team of franchise and restaurant operators is looking to leverage their expertise for an even-greater number of people.
