Shuckin' Shack Recognized for Making Seafood Niche "More Approachable"

When it comes to restaurant franchise opportunities, it seems good choices are nearly endless. At the top of the pyramid you have a few burger chains that fight it out in just about every city across our country. When it comes to sub sandwich and pizza restaurants, the franchising options are fewer but still significant depending on what part of the country you live in.

Yet when people think of seafood restaurants, most cities have just two options; fast food or fine dining. What make’s Shuckin’ Shack so unique is that we truly fall into a Fast Casual Restaurant category because we stay away from the imported, fried fish products that is common with the fast seafood chains and obviously our bucket lights, surfboards, paper towel rolls and corrugated steel decor keeps us from being classified as anything but “fine dining”. This more affordable and “approachable” niche for fresh seafood is new, unique and interesting to many. Recently the Shuckin’ Shack Oyster Bar & Sports Pub was recognized yesterday (April 29th) by Nation’s Restaurant News magazine as one of three new concepts who were making “seafood more approachable”.

Shuckin’ Shack Franchising CEO, Jonathan Weathington, was quoted within the article to say:

“We’ve seen the space grow significantly in the 12 years we’ve been around,” said Jonathan Weathington, CEO of 16-unit Shuckin’ Shack Oyster Bar. “Because consumers are being more health conscious, they’re learning there’s a lot of benefit to eating things from the ocean.

Beyond providing loyal customers with more healthy seafood options than fast food, at a more affordable price point than fine seafood restaurants, our team is also very focused on sustainable sources as well.
