It was just a few weeks ago that we shared this post about our intentions to find new franchise partners for a few key targets in the Midwest. While Cincinnati and Louisville were mentioned, Columbus Ohio was at the top of our list for a few new Shuckin’ Shack Oyster Bar restaurants. And for that reason, our CEO, Jonathan Weathington, and our Vice President of Franchise Development, Mario Piccinin will be leaving soon to exhibit at The Franchise Show taking place in Columbus this Saturday and Sunday, March 30 & 31!
When asked about the Columbus market, Weathington stated;
“We’ve done a lot of homework on Columbus, and we’ve already begun to target some specific cities and neighborhoods for potential locations. We’ll be scouting out real estate a bit while we’re here, but our priority is to find an ideal multi-unit franchisee. Someone who can understand “The Shack” experience, someone who appreciates the revenue numbers our 16 restaurants are generating, and someone who can commit to opening three restaurants over the next few years.”
