It was just a few weeks back that we shared the details about a new lease being signed for our first Shuckin’ Shack Oyster Bar in Florida. Today, we have news from Shuckin’ Shack Franchising CEO, Jonathan Weathington, that final plans for Ocala, FL were approved yesterday! Our multi-unit franchisees, who signed their franchise agreement in late 2018, are going to be very excited to see construction start soon!
When asked about their first location in Florida being opened before 2020, Weathington shared;
We are so excited about bringing Floridians our Shuckin’ Shack experience! Our franchise partners in Florida have committed to opening three restaurants over the next few years, and we are confident that getting started in Ocala makes good strategic sense. Barring any major construction setbacks or natural disasters, we will have this location open later this year!

Below we’ve shared some of the recent architectural renderings of the new Ocala restaurant to help residents better understand what to expect from “The Shack”. We’ve established 17 Shuckin’ Shack Oyster Bars in the Southeast, and are now looking for partners in Tallahassee to help grow our very unique seafood restaurant in 2020. Shuckin’ Shack was established 12 years ago in Carolina Beach, NC and has become renown for it’s fresh, sustainable seafood, friendly coastal atmosphere, tropical cocktails and cold craft beers. If you know of someone who has an interest in bringing a new restaurant concept to Tallahassee and the surrounding area, please Share this special video with them!
