Teriyaki Madness is growing and growing fast!
We opened two new Teriyaki Shops last week: Denver, Colorado and Hoover, Alabama!
This is franchisee, Qing Li’s second shop in the Denver area and is excited about spreading the Madness!
Qing said, “Working with Teriyaki Madness has been amazing and I am very happy and proud to be opening my second shop in the DTC (Denver Tech Center) area! Overall, [TMAD] cares deeply about the success of the franchisees. I don’t know how to get all this done without them!”
Qing’s second shop features the latest Teriyaki Madness design and is located in a prominent business area with many office buildings surrounding the shop. Qing has put together a team of hardworking employees and we are looking forward to her success.
Franchisees, Anil and Chinmay opened their first Teriyaki Shop in Hoover, Alabama!
Anil and Chinmay met at University in India in 2006 and began to explore business opportunities together.
Anil said, “We wanted to go into the restaurant industry because I have experience as a cashier and a manager, so I already understood important aspects of the business. The food was the biggest point of emphasis for us. As soon as we tried it, we were sold on the quality of the menu.”
Anil and Chinmay’s shop was a prior pizza place and shares the parking lot with many prominent businesses with a lot of visibility. During the construction process, the team was able to incorporate many elements of the existing location into the new design.
Congrats to Qing Li and Anil & Chinmay Patel for their new Teriyaki Shops!
Investor Visa Candidates Bringing 5 Teriyaki Shops to Wisconsin!
Teriyaki Madness is excited to be bringing five new Teriyaki Shops to the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area!
FirstPathway Partners, a group who help investor visa candidates become American Citizens, were introduced to Teriyaki Madness through a franchise consultant. After visiting the shops, trying the food and meeting the support team, the investors were hooked on the Madness.
The Franchise Consultant said, “I worked with First Pathways for almost a year on different ideas for their EB5 candidates. They liked TMAD’s business model and they loved Restaurant Sherpas. Having an experienced management company come in to operate the business is the biggest differentiator between Teriyaki Madness and all other franchise concepts.”
Restaurant Sherpas is a management affiliate working exclusively for Teriyaki Madness. The management company helps with everything from launching the business (Real Estate, Construction, Training) to the management once the Teriyaki Shop is open!
Working with Investor Visa Candidates? Introduce them to the Madness!
Last year TMAD rolled out its brand new loyalty program which featured deals and special offers for being a loyal Teriyaki lover!
The app and the Loyalty Program allows TMAD to narrow down customer data to the level of how often they visit, which shop they like best, what they order, and when they order. Knowing customer behavior allows franchisees to market better to their customers, resulting in more sales!
“As we continue to grow, we knew we needed to invest in building stronger relationships with our customers through the type of mobile convenience they expect of their favorite restaurants today,” said Teriyaki Madness VP of Marketing Jodi Boyce.
Teriyaki Madness was featured in QSR for its exponential growth in 2019!
It’s not often that a young franchise brand gets to celebrate the launch of a new loyalty program; its first annual conference; the opening of a flagship corporate headquarters shop that serves as a hybrid R&D center/training facility; expansion into seven new states and two countries; a completely new shop design; a dramatic reduction in prime costs through national agreements with Pepsi and Sysco; and myriad other franchisee profit initiatives … all within a single year.
After seeing a 48 percent increase to 65 shops in 2019, Teriyaki Madness is well-positioned to further build on this momentum in the year ahead, especially considering its efforts on the development front. TMAD has awarded 90 new franchise locations in 2019 alone.
The year’s growth was made possible by TMAD’s three-year investment into the building of its leadership team, products and processes to help the brand evolve to the point where it could bring on a number of experienced staff to coach and train its franchisees to success. By putting in the work to form a capable community with a common goal, TMAD more than doubled in size internally so it could competently do so externally through franchising, as well.
As the brand continues aggressively yet thoughtfully pushing forward, a team mentality and culture of collaboration will continue to be an integral component to Teriyaki Madness’ systemwide success in 2020.
