Multi-Unit Sandwich Franchise Operator Adds TMAD!

Ken Schanke and Audrey Poynton are no strangers to the restaurant business, rather they are growing their restaurant portfolio by Maddening their horizons!

They currently own and operate four Jersey Mike’s in Northern Connecticut and are opening three TMADs in the same area. The ownership does not stop there… Audrey also owns and operates her own boutique. Let’s just say this duo knows how to wok-the-walk when it comes to owning and operating and we are excited to see them excel here with Teriyaki Madness!

We asked Ken and Audrey what brought TMAD to their attention and their answer, simply put “We love the concept, simplicity of the menu, it blends delicious, fresh, and healthy. The TMAD team with its end-to-end support from training, opening, and business reviews create a WIN-WIN relationship!”

As we thank Ken and Audrey for bringing Teriyaki Madness to Northern Connecticut, our first to the state, we also want to recognize what this duo is passionate about, “making a difference in our community and for our employees to build a career.” That attitude, bundled with Mad energy and a local feel Teriyaki Shop, is the recipe for success!
