Seattle-style Teriyaki shop to open this week in Rockaway

This November, Teriyaki Madness (TMAD), the Seattle-style Teriyaki Shop franchise with locations all over the country, is officially bringing its beloved menu to the people of Rockaway. Tony Santarelli is set to open the newest Teriyaki Madness shop at 395 Mount Hope Ave Suite 600, Rockaway on Nov. 10th.

Santarelli’s Teriyaki Shop will offer teriyaki bowls filled with addicting flavors and high-quality ingredients like all-natural marinated chicken, steak, salmon or tofu with fresh, stir-fry veggies and a base of steamed white, brown or fried rice or Yakisoba noodles.

Santarelli hails from a family deeply rooted in entrepreneurship, having been raised in a home where his father was a company owner. This background instilled a strong desire to be his own boss. With over 20 years of experience in the fast-food industry, Santarelli has successfully operated multiple Dunkin Donuts. His passion for simple, craveable food with a unique taste profile led him to join Teriyaki Madness.

A people person with a high energy level, Santarelli is committed to ensuring that every guest has a fantastic experience at their TMAD locations. He has ambitious plans to build a minimum of five TMAD locations, demonstrating his dedication to expanding the brand’s presence. The choice of the Rockaway location was strategic, driven by the alignment of the brand with the area’s high-quality brands and strong demographics.

“I wanted to find a food concept that had a highly craveable, simple menu that stood out from its competitors,” Santarelli said. “The taste profile of the simple menu and fresh food along with a demographic that will appreciate it was exactly what I was looking for.”
