About Samurai Sam's Teriyaki Grill

The first Samurai Sam’s restaurant was opened by John Young, David Young, Kerry Phelps and Russ Schoene in Scottsdale, Arizona, in 1994.

Today there are Samurai Sam’s locations across the western United States. Samurai Sam’s is owned by Kahala, franchisor of Blimpie, Cereality, Cold Stone Creamery, Frullati Café & Bakery, Great Steak & Potato, Johnnie’s, Nrgize, Ranch 1, Rollerz, Surf City Squeeze and TacoTime.
