AVE MARIA, FLORIDA, — September 16, 2019— Ave Maria Development announces a brand-new restaurant, Teriyaki Madness, has signed a lease for 2,500 square feet in the Ave Maria Town Center. Teriyaki Madness is a fast-casual Asian restaurant concept with over 60 open locations in the United States. The menu features made-to-order Teriyaki dishes prepared with all-natural ingredients and served quickly in a fun and relaxed atmosphere, according to the company website. The new location in Ave Maria will be operated by Phong Ho, an Ave Maria resident and operator of the Tropical Smoothie franchise in Ave Maria.

“I have been looking for an Asian concept restaurant to bring to Ave Maria for quite some time,” states Phong Ho. “Ave Maria is growing so rapidly that we need another restaurant, especially with a unique menu. I am a big fan of Teriyaki Madness and the customizable options for all the menu items. We can cater to food allergies as all our sauces are gluten free, high protein diets, and vegetarian preferences.” The restaurant will seat approximately 40 patrons inside and include outdoor patio seating.

“Phong Ho has been a successful restauranteur in the Ave Maria Town Center for more than 10 years,” adds Cee Cee Marinelli, director of commercial leasing for Barron Collier Companies, the co-developer of Ave Maria. “He is well-known in the community, is a positive supporter of Ave Maria, and knows the restaurant business. We are thrilled to see him expand with the new Teriyaki Madness concept.”

Teriyaki Madness was founded in 2003 and was recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine as a Franchise 500 company. Teriyaki Madness is anticipated to open in early 2020 in the Ave Maria Town Center at 5072 Annunciation Circle, Suite 103. More information can be found online at www.teriyakimadness.com.
