A Great Franchise is built on a Strong Foundation

In 1994, a young entrepreneur with a passion for healthy, fresh Japanese favorites and mouth-watering teriyaki sauce opened the first Samurai Sam’s Teriyaki Grill® restaurant in Scottsdale, Arizona. The founder was originally from Seattle, Washington and was inspired by the popularity of the authentic mom and pop teriyaki shops in his hometown. So he decided to bring those flavors and recipes to his new home, and the result was a fantastic teriyaki food franchise, committed to serving fresh, healthy and delicious food locally.

From its start, the Samurai Sam’s Teriyaki Grill® ultimate philosophy has been simple: provide fast, fresh and healthy Japanese dishes using only the highest quality ingredients. Everything about running a Samurai Sam’s Teriyaki Grill® fits that picture, the concept is simple and clean yet the results are flavorful and satisfying.

All menu items are made-to-order and prepared with cooking methods geared toward a healthier lifestyle – We grill our eggrolls and premium choice meats and wok-stir fresh vegetables for a guilt free eating experience!

Samurai Sam’s Teriyaki Grill® prides itself on being a top quick-service restaurant for healthier food choices for people on the go.

Building off the fast fresh and healthy principle, it didn’t take long for the Samurai Sam’s Teriyaki Grill® concept to gain favor with people seeking a satisfying alternative to traditional fast food. Soon, they began franchising and expanded the brand across the United States with locations from coast-to-coast.
