WHY OWN A SHUCKIN’ SHACK?

If you love oysters, people, and FUN, not necessarily in that order, you probably don’t need any additional convincing at this point that owning a Shuckin’ Shack franchise is a great career move. In case you do need a few more reasons, though, here they are (mouse over to read more):

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.”

WHY NOW?

Talk about a perfect storm. 2020 wasn’t exactly smooth sailing for any of us, but Shuckin’ Shack managed to keep the party barge afloat through creative, fun pivots designed for takeout and delivery. These efforts helped us to stay in the black and at the forefront of people’s minds amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

We’re happy to say that Shuckin’ Shack weathered the COVID-19 hurricane. Our existing locations are all running at full steam, and we’ve welcomed our devoted fans back with open arms (figuratively speaking, of course. Six feet apart, people!)

Now it’s time to look forward and see the unexpectedly great opportunities that the unprecedented events of 2020 have left us.

Here’s what makes NOW a perfect time to invest in a Shuckin’ Shack franchise:

Thanks to an abundance of newly-available prime real estate in each market we enter, it’s never been easier or more affordable to source cool, second-generation restaurant spaces.

Our new Franchise Owners are able to take advantage of some of the lowest interest rates in history, keeping overhead costs low.

It’s going to take months to attend training, secure your location, and go through your construction and build-out process, meaning you’ll be opening your doors right when sailing is expected to be smoother for us all!
