B-Man’s Teriyaki and Burgers

  • Byron Takeuchi (Owner)

B-Man’s Teriyaki and Burgers owner, Byron Takeuchi, said he’s raised prices with each bump in the minimum wage. He recently shut down his Azusa location because he couldn’t afford to maintain it as wages rise.

“The minimum wage, plus rent, and the lack of love from people willing to pay more — it’s just, you know, too much,” Takeuchi said. “So I just said, ‘Forget it,’ and I gave up.”
