Teriyaki Madness, a rapidly growing fast-casual teriyaki shop concept, is expanding its franchise opportunity to even more entrepreneurs through the launch of its new affiliate restaurant management company, Restaurant Sherpas.
Recognizing the varying needs of entrepreneurs that are seeking different levels of involvement in the day-to-day operations of a restaurant franchise, the Teriyaki Madness team developed Restaurant Sherpas as a solution for absentee and semi-absentee franchisees across the nation. Whether you’re a multi-unit operator pursuing a larger footprint, an entrepreneur who doesn’t want to quit your day job or working toward investor visas like EB-5, E2 and L-1 immigrant investment programs, Restaurant Sherpas is the perfect option for handling the on-site needs of your new business.
“We created Restaurant Sherpas as a means of harnessing our operational expertise to provide our franchise partners with a reliable solution at the unit level that meets them where they want to be as far as day-to-day involvement is concerned,” says Teriyaki Madness CEO Michael Haith. “The role Restaurant Sherpas plays is tailor-made to each of our partners, and franchisees can be as involved as they choose. We’re excited about the opportunity this presents for even more entrepreneurs to get involved with Teriyaki Madness as we continue to grow across North America.”
The leadership team of Restaurant Sherpas uses their decades of experience to operate Teriyaki Madness franchise partners’ shops and provides full support during the process. Everything from site selection to construction oversight to the recruiting, hiring, and training of the staff to the ongoing day to operations is handled by Restaurant Sherpas.
“Restaurant Sherpas acts as multi-unit leadership, hiring the General Manager and making sure the team and the shop consistently meet and/or exceed the brand guidelines laid out in the franchise agreement. The team ensures the shop is run efficiently, profitably and to the franchisees specifications,” Haith adds. “We currently have two corporate-owned Teriyaki Madness shops using Restaurant Sherpas as well as FirstPathway Partners and Globofran, two companies that help foreign investors achieve business ownership through the EB-5 and E2 visa programs. In addition to being immigration investment-friendly and an extremely viable option for multi-unit operators, we’re confident this versatile, first-of-its-kind offering will attract even more qualified franchise owners to our ever-growing system.”
