We’ve documented the various setbacks our franchisee, Ray Rubin, has had since signing his Shuckin’ Shack franchise agreement back in January of 2018. Even though damage from Hurricane Florence might have slowed him down, Ray is clearly not the type that gives up easily. Thanks to Ray’s tenacity, today, we are happy to report that our 16th Shuckin’ Shack Oyster Bar & Sports Pub is Now Open for business at 2421 Gum Branch Rd in Jacksonville, NC 28540!
As you’ll see from the photo gallery below, we started off last week with some dinner only nights to test the Shack staff and all systems before opening for normal business hours this week - the now includes an expanded lunch menu. As our 16th Shuckin’ Shack to open, Ray has a network of other franchisees he can ask questions of, not to mention an entire support team that have been there prior to opening and during the past week. About a year ago, when we asked Raymond about what other restaurant franchises he had considered along with the Shuckin’ Shack, he shared;
I was considering a Firehouse Subs franchise or a Chick-fil-A restaurant. Basically, the reason I chose Shuckin' Shack was because of the atmosphere - the friendly feel - like when I walk in there. And I truly enjoyed myself - from the minute I walked through the door until the minute I left. Everyone that works there was very welcoming. They all worked as a team to make sure you are satisfied.
