TMAD is on the move! We officially welcomed our newest franchisees who are bringing the Madness to Canada!
Teriyaki Madness’ first steps toward international expansion began in 2018 with its extension to San Luis Potosi, Mexico. Since the news broke of international growth, TMAD moved quickly to add Canada to the list of world domination.
Franchisees, Sam, Kunal and Ankit, who were already very familiar with the restaurant industry, knew they wanted to bring delicious teriyaki to their side of town. The trio were adamant in bringing a new, attractive concept with fresh, delicious food to Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada; just three hours north of the successful Teriyaki Madness in Great Falls, Montana.
TMAD has seen huge success in the past couple of months with the opening of it’s 50th Teriyaki Shop in April (which has already risen to 54 Teriyaki Shops!). In 2018, Teriyaki Madness signed deals that would not only expand into Mexico, but they sold the entire state of Hawaii and spread their footprint to major markets including Florida, California, and Texas.
In addition to breaking into new countries, TMAD Is spreading its bowls into the Minnesota and Utah markets and will soon be in nine additional states. TMAD is projected to open an additional 30 shops before years end.
In a recent interview with the Denver Business Journal talking about deals that are tripling the size of the chain, CEO Michael Haith said, “It’s really about where the puck is going to be, we just check off so many boxes for consumers.”
Sam, Kunal and Ankit will be bringing three locations to Canada with hopefully many more in the very near future!
