Everyone has an idea, sometimes it’s a good idea, sometimes it isn’t, but I love this story: Three entrepreneurs from Seattle decided to launch a new chain of restaurants solely focused on what they loved -- teriyaki. There are plenty of jobs out there, so whether its your first company or with Marriott International, there's something there.
Teriyaki Madness -- Asian restaurant
- It has 16 locations across the U.S.
- Will hire 100 to 150-plus employees by the end of the year
- Top jobs: cashiers, cooks and prep
- Believes in developing from within so whenever possible, people are promoted to managers (managers can make $32K - $40K a year)
- Expanding in Arizona, California, Florida, Michigan, Nebraska, New Jersey, Ohio and Virginia
- Whenever they open a new location, they have a VIP night where all team members can have family and friends come for a free meal

Sports Clips -- Sports-theme hair care franchise for men and boys
