INDUSTRY

Did you know…

In 2017, Americans ate about 9.9 billion pounds of fish and shellfish, up 3.6% from the year before.

Up to 70% of all seafood purchased in the U.S. is consumed in restaurants.

While 56% of Americans eat seafood at least twice a month, only 28% of those who eat seafood feel confident in their abilities to prepare it themselves.

42% of consumers are swapping other types of meat for seafood in an effort to eat healthier.

An oyster bar franchise like Shuckin’ Shack is in a niche category of an already underrepresented segment, seafood, in the $4.1 billion casual dining industry- meaning little to no competition!

“Great food, a great bar, and great service. I go here as often as I can. I love this place. It’s got a very laid back feel to it. Put this on your list of places to try, you’ll be happy you did.”
