Welcome Mayor and Maria Celino!

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!
