Teriyaki Franchise to Celebrate Opening in Lombard, Illinois on June 3

Teriyaki Madness was featured in Franchising.com for our newest teriyaki franchise opening in Lombard, Illinois on June 3, 2019!

The Teriyaki Franchise, which officially opened its doors last week, is run by franchisees, Nik and Rita, Patel who are long time Lombard residents. Throughout the week Nik and Rita invited locals to enjoy the newest bowls on the block with special deals throughout the week.

According to Franchising.com, “The Patels have always had a dream of opening a restaurant together. Nik, who moved to the U.S. from India in the late 1990s, works in the IT field and was looking to add a business to his portfolio that hadn’t yet entered the Chicago market. When Nik tried teriyaki for the first time, he was hooked and began searching for a concept to bring back to Illinois… Enter Teriyaki Madness.”

Combined with the delicious food and Rita’s experience (working for Wendy’s for 10+ years) Teriyaki Madness was perfect for the pair to bring to Lombard, Illinois.

According to the article, “The day we tried Teriyaki Madness’ spicy chicken teriyaki, I knew I was a big fan of the brand,” Nik said. “Our food is delicious, addictive, and travels well. There is no heat lamp or hot-held food; everything is always made fresh with healthy ingredients and delicious house-made sauces, however a customer wants it. Once you have a bowl, you’ll crave another.” Nik said. Rita added, “The leadership of [Teriyaki Madness CEO] Michael Haith and his team is amazing. We wouldn’t have been able to open the shop at our pace and in our chosen location without the brand’s real estate, construction, operations, training, and marketing support, guidance, and patience.”

TMAD is on the road to exceptional growth and is excited to support Nik and Rita in bringing their Teriyaki Franchise to a new market and beyond. The pair are sure to experience massive success with their new Teriyaki Shop.
