GREAT FALLS MAN EARNES “NATIONAL FRANCHISEE OF THE YEAR” AWARD

GREAT FALLS – The International Franchise Association has recognized one of Great Falls very own. Aaron Weissman, owner of Teriyaki Madness, received the ‘National Franchisee of the Year’ award.
Weissman says although he was surprised by the award, he is very humble: “It’s such a testament to the wonderful people that work here in Great Falls.”
“I tried the food and I thought, ‘Oh my God, it’s so good.’ I thought we had to have one of these in Great Falls. So I worked hard for a couple of years and I made sure that we got one open,” Weissman said.
Teriyaki Madness, located on 10th Avenue South, is the only one in Montana; it opened in April 2017.
Weissman says the best thing about owning a franchise is working with his employees, and with other organizations in Great Falls.
Every Monday is ‘fundraiser night’ at Teriyaki Madness, with 20% of sales going to a selected non-profit agency in the community.
“So far we have donated thousands of dollars all over Great Falls. We have worked with over three dozen organizations.” Weissman said.
When MTN asked Weissman about the key to being an entrepreneur in Great Falls, he had this to say:
“You’ve got to be a little bit brave. You have to be willing to put yourself out there. You’ve got to be willing to accept some criticism. And you’ve got to be willing to take a risk.”
A press release says that the Teriyaki Madness corporate team nominated Weissman not only for his strong sales and profit margins, but because of the good work he does in the Great Falls community.
