Teriyaki Madness opens first N.J. location in Newark

Fast-casual restaurant chain Teriyaki Madness recently opened its first New Jersey location in Newark, according to Paramount Assets.

Paramount’s Samir Guzman, executive director of leasing and marketing, arranged the 2,000-square-foot lease at 137 Halsey St. JLL’s Marta Villa represented the tenant.

“Situated on what arguably is the busiest corner in the Halsey Street corridor – just two blocks from Rutgers University – 137 Halsey Street proved the ideal location for this brand’s expansion into the Garden State,” Guzman said. “Teriyaki Madness is a great addition to Newark’s evolving retail landscape, and a terrific amenity for the city’s residential and business populations.”

The Seattle-style teriyaki restaurant offers all-natural chicken, steak, salmon or tofu with stir-fried vegetables and a base of steamed white, brown or fried rise, or Yakisoba noodles.

“The food is delicious and clearly makes people happy,” Newark resident Yash Jagad, who brought Teriyaki Madness to the city, said. “I think this concept would be a good fit anywhere. But I’m especially excited to have brought this brand to my community. Newark and Teriyaki Madness share a similar confidence as a City and brand both on the rise.”
