Brevard Achievement Center (BAC), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency headquartered in Rockledge, Florida, that serves people with disabilities, announced that it will bring the first of five Teriyaki Madness restaurants to Florida under the ownership of Brevard Achievement Center Franchise LLC (BAC Franchise), a wholly owned subsidiary of BAC. The inaugural Florida location will open on July 31 within Colonial Plaza in Orlando with a second location to open in late fall at the Crosslands shopping center in Kissimmee. All BAC Franchise locations will be managed by general manager Zack Zonker.
Besides bringing delicious, healthier, fresh Asian food to the metro Orlando area this year and Brevard County in 2016, owning the Teriyaki Madness franchise will give BAC an additional opportunity to fulfill its mission to assist people with disabilities achieve personal success. This will be accomplished in two distinct ways: Net proceeds from each restaurant will be used to supplement underfunded programs and services at BAC recently impacted by government budget reductions, and employment opportunities will be available at each location for people with disabilities.
The newly opened Teriyaki Madness on Colonial Drive looks like any other casual restaurant in the area with one slight difference: It’s owned by a nonprofit organization.
The “Chipotle of Japanese food,” according to the Dallas Business Journal, serves bowls and combination plates that include meat, rice or noodles, and some type of salad for under $10.
The restaurant, which opened Friday, is owned by the Brevard Achievement Center, an organization based in Rockledge, Fla., dedicated to helping people with disabilities achieve personal success by helping with employment and life skills, according to its website. The group bought franchise rights last year to open five Teriyaki Madness restaurants in Orange County and Brevard County, says BAC’s spokesperson Rosalind Weiss.
