Scott and Denise Lingeman are bringing the madness to The Tampa area with the opening of the newest Teriyaki Madness in Wesley Chapel on September 25. The Seattle-style teriyaki restaurant will offer satisfying bowls of flavors made with ingredients like marinated chicken, steak, salmon or tofu with stir-fried veggies and a base of Yakisoba noodles or steamed white, brown or fried rice.
The new shop is located at 28152 Paseo Drive, Unit 160 in Wesley Chapel, Florida and is one of the storefronts at The Shops at Wiregrass outdoor shopping mall.
The Lingemans are inviting locals and non-locals out to celebrate the Teriyaki Madness grand opening with events beginning September 30 through October 5. The schedule of events and primary giveaways are included below:
The Lingemans joined Teriyaki Madness as a way for Scott to transition out of his 35-year career as a commercial airline pilot. The brand offered the Lingemans a business model and corporate support system that provided Scott with both a better quality of life and a new income stream to retire more comfortably.
“The customizability means it can be as healthy or as indulgent as you want it to be,” says Scott. “There’s really nothing like this in the Tampa area.”
While some Floridians are already familiar with Teriyaki Madness, the Lingemans intend to drive brand buzz throughout Florida.
“In addition to this location, we have one that is currently under construction in Clearwater that’s going to open later this year,” says Scott. “We’re trying to bring brand awareness up in Florida because people are already really excited about it.”
“In the past decade, we have been growing at a rapid pace, introducing mouthwatering, bold-flavors in new communities, and we are ecstatic to be opening up our first shop in Wesley Chapel,” says Teriyaki Madness CEO Michael Haith. “Scott and Denise are wonderful members of our franchise family and we are so excited to watch and support them as they champion the brand’s entry into this new market and drive success in the state while Teriyaki Madness continues to expand beyond Wesley Chapel and throughout Florida.”
Founded in 2003, the brand currently has franchise agreements in place for nearly 150 shops across the U.S.
