Ven is set up for success with experience as a franchisee of Kumon Learning Center and Urban Air Adventure Park. He’s also previously owned a Quizno’s and a Menchies, so Ven knows a thing or two about running his own business. He was most drawn to TMAD because of the simple concept, the use of digital technology, and the management of the franchise.
Being from Melbourne, FL himself, Ven is excited to open up a shop in his hometown and looks forward to being a part of the world of Teriyaki Madness!
St. Charles, IL
Mike Hendershott, Kathy Hendershott and Bill Christy recently opened their shop in St. Charles, IL! For this trio, Teriyaki Madness stood out over other franchise concepts for the delicious and craveable food, and a corporate team who is dedicated to helping shop owners succeed.
“The concept is fresh and new. It’s not the same old tired burgers or pizza. It’s fresh and healthy— Teriyaki Madness is somewhere where I would take my family. The product is excellent and the corporate team is extremely impressive with experience and organization.”
– Mike Hendershott
Mark Friese recently opened his first shop in Broomfield, CO! After 20 years working in a corporate office setting, Mark sought a new business venture. Plus, he grew up in the Pacific Northwest where teriyaki shops sat on every street corner so bringing a piece of that nostalgia to Colorado was the natural choice.
“I want to create and grow my own opportunity that I can be passionate about, make a difference in my community, maximize my return on investment to gain long-term flexibility and create financial comfort for my family.”
– Mark Friese
Dominic Do opened up another shop just last week in Phoenix, AZ! Dominic was drawn to TMAD by the great teams on the corporate side, and in-shop. In fact, he first heard about Teriyaki Madness from his daughter who raved about how delicious the food was. Dominic knew he had to try and one thing led to another… now he’s opening his third shop!
“You live and you learn and I want to grow with a great company.”
– Dominic Do
Teriyaki Madness expands yet again in Colorado! A big welcome to Terry and Julie Criger, in addition to their partner Reymond Leyba. The three new members of the TMAD team all have extensive professional experience. They value their family and want to provide for their future!
“The only way to be successful in life is working as a team. Everyone needs someone else to be successful, I’m a big believer in that.“
– Terry and Julie Criger and Reymond Leyba
This is the seventh shop Restaurant Sherpas has opened for clients of FirstPathway Partners since the Fall of 2020! It certainly won’t be the last though!
“Entering the exciting world of franchise development and ownership always seemed like something that was out of reach for us. That is until we met the team at Restaurant Sherpas.”
– Dan Wycklendt, FirstPathway Partners on behalf of clients
Michael and Shavonn bring their family to ours! As a health conscious household that loves good food, TMAD was a no brainer for them!
“We are fully committed to growing in every way we can.”
– Michael Janes, Franchisee
Vernon Hills, IL
For David Rounds, organizational strength and a passion for the product are what makes a great concept (great returns don’t hurt either.) David tackled the learning curve that comes with opening a restaurant head on and now has a great location to show for his hard work!
“TMAD has a great product, strong support, great results and lots of opportunity.”
– David Rounds, Franchisee
Rolling Meadows, IL
