We’ve proven we can outlast the toughest storms and will show you how to do so as well.

A Dynamite Career Opportunity

When Shuckin’ Shack opened for business in 2007 in Carolina Beach, North Carolina, there were no raw oyster bar options anywhere. The concept caught on like a fresh catch, and by 2014, the founders had created a kick-back franchise, unlike anything before. With no direct competitors and a life-is-a-party vibe all its own, Shuckin’ Shack dominates among other pubs for sale thanks to its business model anchored by several supporting elements.
Multiple Sources Of Revenue

Cooking up something to satisfy everyone, our menu offers a wide selection including oysters, shellfish, family-sized meals, salads, sandwiches, sides, and desserts. Our assortment of amazing brews rounds off the feast perfectly.

The income generated through such novel offerings is impressive, with current owners making an average of $1.3 million* in net sales. With an initial investment starting at $252,700, that represents an ROI rate of 266%!

Sustainability

Protecting and preserving our oceans, reefs and marine life is a top priority at Shuckin’ Shack. For that reason, we source our seafood responsibly and implement sustainable practices.
 

    Skip the Straw
    Our patrons at Shuckin’ Shack skip the plastic straw in favor of biodegradable, reusable alternatives.

    Ocean Friendly Certified
    Our mission to protect the ocean means preserving sea life by applying to be Ocean Friendly Establishments.

    Oyster Shell Recycling
    We don’t just carelessly discard our oyster shells. Instead, they’re reclaimed and used for reef restoration to support healthy undersea habitats.

    As Fresh as You Can Get
    Through the James Beard Fresh Catch Program, we’re able to increase the sustainability of the supply chain by sourcing fish responsibly.

    We Know Our Fish
    We’re pretty obsessed with knowing the origins of our seafood and can tell customers exactly where their fish was caught, the name of the boat that reeled it in, and, sometimes, the name of the captain! We guarantee freshness of the highest quality, even to landlocked locations.

Community Connection

It’s important to us that every patron who steps through our doors receives a warm welcome that makes them feel right at home. We empower each franchise location by highlighting the local flair. We like the environment to reflect what’s trending locally, so the space connects them with hometown interests and values.

Streamlined Operations

Through our “Shuck U” training program, franchise applicants receive over 140 hours of classroom instruction and hands-on exposure. Our dedicated real estate team helps with site selection for your oyster bar, including assistance in planning the design, construction, and grand opening.

Once the franchise is awarded, new owners receive intensive support through weekly communication and access to an app that will keep you up-to-date with video and photo content and corporate directives. Thanks to our marketing team, you’ll also receive assistance with quarterly directives and promotions and have access to our in-house graphic designer.

Brilliant Branding

Any entrepreneur understands the power of strategized branding for recognition and loyalty. Not only does effective branding make a lasting impression, but it also informs customers as to what they can expect when they walk through the doors.

We distinguish ourselves from competitors with our fun-loving atmosphere, welcome ambiance, and a “No worries!”, easygoing pace. “Responsibly sourced, seriously fun!” is our motto and our core values are respect, integrity, sustainability, and excellence (RISE). Between the two, our identity is well represented at the Shuckin’ Shack.
