Demolition Begins for The Shack in Cumming, GA

We don’t even have “Coming Soon” signs in the windows yet, but progress is already being made. After having awarded a franchise agreement for Cumming, GA to the Mitchell family back in April of 2018, these new Shuckin’ Shack franchisees have not slowed since their lease was signed earlier this month. This rapid response is a sure sign that this family has both restaurant and franchise experience they’ll leverage to their advantage!

Another advantage “The Shack” has coming into Cumming is that we are taking over an existing restaurant space. While this means some dirty demolition work at the very start, it will save time and money in the long run. As you’ll see from this week’s demolition photos (gallery below) we’ve already completely removed nearly everything resembling the prior restaurant - a Dickey’s BBQ.

The new Shuckin’ Shack Oyster Bar restaurant will be located at 415 Peachtree Parkway, Cumming, GA 30041. According to Shuckin’ Shack CEO, Jonathan Weathington, they are projecting a late Spring or early Summer opening. When asked about bringing “The Shack” to Cumming, franchisee Michael Mitchell said:

"It has always been a dream of mine to own my own restaurant. The Shuckin' Shack franchise is the perfect fit for me. I've gone through sales and operations... my whole life has led to this point." - Michael Mitchell, Shuckin’ Shack Oyster Bar Franchisee
