Teriyaki Madness Introduces Family-Style Share-a-Bowl Meal Promotion to Bring Families Together (or Not)

September 18, 2020

As this school year kicks off, the ongoing coronavirus pandemic continues to create stressful situations for families across the country, with many parents still working from home and many children still receiving remote schooling. To help relieve some of that burden, fan-favorite teriyaki-shop franchise Teriyaki Madness — one of the few foodservice businesses to not only survive, but thrive during the COVID-19 crisis with same store sales up 17% year over year —is paying its success forward by offering Share-a-Bowl Meals, five bowls of individual items served family-style at a really great price, from September 1 to October 15.

The Family-Style Share-a-Bowl Meal at Teriyaki Madness feeds up to six people (or one very hungry person). Customers can choose two proteins (fresh, marinated and grilled chicken teriyaki, spicy chicken, orange chicken, steak teriyaki or spicy tofu); two bases (white rice, brown rice, fried rice or yakisoba noodles); and two appetizers (edamame, chicken eggroll, crab rangoon or chicken potstickers). Each meal comes with fresh, stir-fry veggies (zucchini, cabbage, onion, carrots and broccoli). For just $45*, customers can feed the whole family, with each member customizing their meal at home based on their cravings.

“As kids are returning to school, many of them doing it remotely, and families continue to adapt to the pandemic, we want to do whatever we can to make their lives a little easier during this difficult chapter,” said Teriyaki Madness EVP of Marketing Jodi Boyce. “This meal offers a really easy way to satisfy everyone’s cravings – with food even the kids will love – at a great price. It also happens to be healthy, but don’t tell the kids that part!”

In May, Teriyaki Madness introduced its Pay-it-Forward campaign, which asked customers to team up with the brand to split the cost of meals for healthcare workers. Since that campaign launched, Teriyaki Madness and its fans have provided more than 6,000 meals to healthcare professionals and first responders across the country. In June, the brand rolled out the The Four-Top, a combo meal deal offered exclusively to restaurant industry workers laid off since the arrival of the coronavirus. The franchise is committed to finding new ways to support local communities and provide families with delicious, healthy (or not), customizable meals.

“As families across the nation have been navigating homeschooling, virtual learning, and tricky work and school schedules, we are all realizing just how important teachers are,” said Boyce, who has two sons in middle and elementary school. “We are planning to launch a promotion in October to benefit teachers, and try to make their hectic lives just a little bit easier.”

The Share-a-Bowl Meal can be order in-shop, online or through the TMAD app for pickup or delivery through October 15.

Wayback Burgers Remains To Increase, Innovate, and Give Back


September 17, 2020

Wayback Burgers, America’s favorite hometown burger joint, and one of the nation’s fastest-growing burger franchises, is reflecting on the first half of 2020 and looking forward to continued expansion and innovation in the later part of the year.

The year 2020 has been one for the history books, and that is no different for Wayback Burgers. Despite the pandemic, Wayback Burgers has awarded eleven new franchises to date.

Popular promotional products and campaigns drove excitement and sales for franchisees of the thriving brand.

“In the middle of all this, Wayback Burgers launched a family meal pack, a milkshake promotion on Memorial Day, and of course still held our Free Shake Day giveaway,” said Patrick Conlin, President of Wayback Burgers. “Additionally, we launched a Summertime Lemonade LTO.”

We also saw an increase in milkshake sales nationwide of around two percent year over year. The brand believes this uptick is from people wanting to treat themselves during the shutdown, and a milkshake is something most people do not have the ingredients or blenders to make at home.

In addition to an increase in milkshake sales, June, July and August saw increases in system wide and traditional comp sales. System wide sales for June were up 9.6%, July saw an increase of 10.3%, while August also saw an increase of 10.1%. While June traditional comp sales were up 8.49%, a larger increase occurred in July with 18.9% and 14.2% in August.

Menu item promotions in 2020 bolstered not just the brand’s engagement with guests but contributed to the community at large. Wayback Burgers continued to develop its national partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America. A portion of every burger and sandwich sold goes to BGCA. Since the partnership began on June 1, 2018, $300,000 has been donated to the Clubs.

When the pandemic began shutting down dining rooms, many Wayback Burgers’ franchisees had to quickly pivot to conducting almost all of their business as takeout, delivery, and curbside pickup. A huge benefit for the brand is that for more than nine years, an online ordering system has been in place. Additionally, two years ago, the Wayback mobile ordering app was launched. In addition, most franchisees also were set up and using the major third-party delivery services prior to the COVID pandemic.

“If we did not have these systems in place prior to the pandemic, I do not believe we would have achieved the sales increases that we are seeing,” said Conlin. “Within the first week of the pandemic, we added curbside pick-up to our system, and that was a big help for our franchisees sales. Our marketing efforts changed from a national focus to a hyper-local focus around each franchisee’s location. Our franchise community embraced this approach which engaged them to spend additional marketing dollars in their areas.”

Switching gears on how patrons experienced Wayback Burgers was not the only challenge at the beginning of the pandemic.

“We produced a COVID-19 procedures manual and supplied every franchisee with a kit for display in their restaurants, including branded face masks,” said Conlin. “Our franchisees jumped in and helped out their local communities with charitable endeavors, such as food donations and delivery to hospitals, EMS stations, and unemployed workers from various industries impacted by the pandemic. A big thank you goes out to our franchisee community and all their team members for working under extremely difficult conditions and remaining open to serve their communities.”

Plans and Goals for 2020

The last part of the year will bring increased expansion as well as a new look for Wayback Burgers restaurants. Wayback Burgers has a goal of awarding another nine new franchises by the end of 2020.

For existing franchisees that want to expand to another location, Wayback Burgers is planning to charge a $10,000 initial franchise fee. The entire franchise fee will be used to remodel the franchisee’s existing restaurant. Currently, the brand is seeing early interest in this initiative with six existing franchisees seeking more information.

“Wayback Burgers believes this is a great fit for our outstanding franchisees to expand and take advantage of second-generation restaurant spaces that are available around the country,” said Conlin. This program is designed to save money during the construction phase and help refresh our brand’s look and feel.”

Navy Veteran Anthony Vu Brings Fresh Layer Painters to Anaheim

September 16, 2020

Anthony Vu, a veteran of the United States Navy, is pleased to announce the launch of his new professional painting company – Fresh Coat Painters of Anaheim.

Fresh Coat Painters offers residential and commercial painting services including interior and exterior painting, sealing and staining; drywall repair; pressure washing; popcorn ceiling and wallpaper removal. Fresh Coat Painters of Anaheim has a 24/7 receptionist, online scheduling and free detailed quotes, and they only use high-quality materials. Fresh Coat Painters of Anaheim serves Anaheim and the surrounding cities.

“Fresh Coat Painters is different because we are a painting company that’s focused on high-quality work and customer satisfaction, not just on getting the job done. My painters are background-checked professionals you can trust to be in your home and who will leave you with a finished product that you’ll love,” Vu said.

As part of the company’s commitment to customer service, Fresh Coat Painters offers a 3-3-3 customer service pledge, which means calls will be answered by a live person within three rings, a quote will be delivered within three days (customer schedule permitting) and the job will be started within three weeks. Fresh Coat Painters has a national product partnership with Sherwin-Williams®, so products are guaranteed to be high quality.

Vu, his mother and his brother moved to the United States from Vietnam in 2004 in pursuit of a better life. Times were tough for Vu, his brother and his mom, who was caring for the two boys while her husband remained in Vietnam. In 2008, Vu graduated from Lincoln High School in Los Angeles and joined the Navy. During his time in the Navy, to help his family and to raise money to get his dad to the United States, Vu ran a side business repairing uniforms during deployments and, later, he started doing name tag and insignia embroidery. In 2018, he brought his dad to the United States and left the Navy. After looking for a career that would suit his electrical and entrepreneurial skill set, Vu decided to open his own business – Fresh Coat Painters of Anaheim.

“Fresh Coat Painters is an opportunity for me to serve my community in a new way by raising the bar in a sometimes challenged industry. Fresh Coat Painters – locally and nationally – really cares about our customers and our reputation, which is why we are so focused on doing what’s right for the customer, from our 3-3-3 pledge to our work to our warranty,” he said.

Fresh Coat Painters was founded in 2004 as part of Strategic Franchising Systems. Since 2015, Fresh Coat Painters has been included in the Bond’s Top 100 and named to Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 list. Fresh Coat Painters is also part of the International Franchise Association, the Small Business Association’s Franchise Registry, VetFran and Minority Fran. Fresh Coat Painters of Anaheim is bonded and insured.

Famous Toastery Accelerates Franchise Growth With Plans to Double in Size Over the Next Two-and-a-Half Years

September 16, 2020

Famous Toastery has been one of the fastest growing better-breakfast chains in the U.S. As an early pioneer of the breakfast-and-lunch-only sector, Famous Toastery has made a name for itself by offering all-day breakfast long before the quick-service giants had discovered the sales potential. In addition to breakfast staples like waffles and avocado toast, the restaurant also serves an extensive array of traditional lunch selections, like burgers, wraps, a crab roll and grilled cheese on sourdough bread. Toasted, of course.

After starting a franchise program in 2013, the North Carolina-based concept jumped from three to more than 25 stores in just five years, with franchisees being drawn to the brand’s proven business model, strong support infrastructure and the opportunity for an attractive work-life balance.

In response to this rapid growth and beloved consumer offering, the brand earned spots on Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 and Inc. 5000.

“Now, we are accelerating our franchise development efforts again, with the goal of doubling in size over the next two-and-a-half years,” said Maynard.

Since this acceleration happens to correspond with the COVID-19 pandemic, Maynard says the 26-unit Famous Toastery has had to make some major adjustments to operations. Some of the adjustments included paper menus (and eventually QR codes), contactless payment and limited menu items. The most important advancement was the launch of an online ordering platform, which was rolled out in four days.

“We have been implementing new technology so that we can meet our guests where they are comfortable,” said Maynard. “Regardless of whether they want a paper menu or a digital menu, or whether they want to pay up front or on their phone — we are creating solutions that benefit all of our customers. Plus, we are constantly reviewing trends and looking for ways to meet nutritional requests and needs. Our motto ‘Every Server is Your Server’ means that no matter what you need, you can ask any server and they will get it for you.”

Regarding the success of the brand’s franchisees, Maynard says operators are doing well as they wait for things to return to normal. Famous Toastery has worked hard to assist established franchise owners during the pandemic, including royalty forgiveness and access to funds from the Paycheck Protection Program.

Looking ahead, Famous Toastery appears to be well-positioned for the future and has already received a lot of interest from franchise prospects. Two restaurants opened in August and another one is scheduled to open before the end of 2020.

The franchising industry is also recognizing Famous Toastery’s winning model. The company was recently recognized on Restaurant Business’s Future 50 and featured as a Travelers’ Choice Winner on TripAdvisor.

“While the breakfast, brunch and lunch segment is becoming more saturated, we have a special story to tell,” said Maynard. “Thanks to our breakfast-and-lunch service model, Famous Toastery franchisees enjoy a work-life balance that allows them to create the lifestyle and future they desire. In addition, our focus on making sure that patrons, staff members and franchisees alike all feel warmly welcomed by the brand at every point of contact sets us apart from the competition.”

In 2020 and 2019, Famous Toastery placed on Restaurant Business’ The Future 50, featuring the fastest-growing small chains.
