Congrats to franchisee, Katie Catlin for opening her Teriyaki Franchise in Lapeer, MI!
Katie decided on joining Teriyaki Madness as a way to give back to the people of Lapeer. She wanted to bring a more diverse, healthier, late-night food option to the community, saying, “I was sold on Teriyaki Madness from the moment I tried the food. There is so much flexibility to make the bowl as healthy as you want, and the food is made fresh to order.”
Katie intends to use her Teriyaki Franchise as a platform to give back to the local schools and autism advocacy groups that have helped her family. Katie is a mother of three children and her youngest is autistic. The Lapeer community has offered consistent support and provided her son with life-changing options for academic enrichment and social development. Katie partnered with Banbury Cross Therapeutic Equestrian Center for her fundraiser day because this organization has given her son the opportunity to grow and get all the support he needs.
Charlene Richardson, one of the New Shop Openers, was there for the opening and said, “Katie has put in hard work to put together a team of amazing people and the support of the community has been tremendous! There were lines outside the door in the snow and there has been a steady flow of people excited to try the Madness!”
