Teriyaki Madness

What’s the Teriyaki Madness Story?

There’s a reason Teriyaki Shops are found everywhere in Seattle; teriyaki is fast, delicious, and healthy. The founders love affair with teriyaki started in Seattle as students, then was brought home to Las Vegas in 2003 to see if it would work in a totally different market.

It wasn’t long before they had built a community of raving fans and average unit volumes (AUV) over a million dollars. In 2012, after proving the business model, with 7 open shops, Teriyaki Madness began building its community of teriyaki shop owners and food fanatics nationwide.

With success across the country, we took TMAD to the next level. TMAD is spreading fast and now operates in 18 states and 50+ open shops.

Teriyaki Madness brings teriyaki to a whole new level with a family friendly, neighborhood feel.
