Shuckin' Shack Seafood Restaurant Targets Chattanooga for 2020 Franchise Expansion

Since being founded in 2007, the Shuckin’ Shack Oyster Bar has successfully opened 15 seafood restaurants in four states that include North Carolina, Maryland, South Carolina and Georgia. With our first of three locations set to open in Florida later this year, our attention now turns to expansion plans for 2020. One of the target cities at the top of our list for next year is Chattanooga, TN!

According to Matt Piccinin, the Co-Founder of Shuckin’ Shack, Chattanooga holds very special appeal:

We know that Chattanooga has a lot of great restaurants. We want to add to the foodie scene here and not compete with the seafood restaurants here. However, we know that we can fill a void in the casual dining scene. Our fresh seafood, scratch made recipes, and laid back lifestyle will quickly become a fan favorite of Chattanooga.

While “The Shack” has clearly succeeded with a lunch and dinner menu featuring sustainable seafood that include local oysters, Wild Caught Shrimp and North American crab legs, they also include menu options for all members of the family. Recent updates to the one-page Shuckin’ Shack menu for 2019 present many options for “land lovers” too, like the “Breakwater Burger”, the “Bushwood” club sandwich or their award-winning whole, breaded and fried chicken wings. And we haven’t even touched on the many tropical boat drinks available, like the “Saltmarsh Margarita” or “Pearls Punch”, plus a long line of locally brewed, craft beers on tap!

Over the months to come residents of Chattanooga can expect to see our marketing efforts online. Our goal is to find a strong business partner, socially active within this market, who can financial afford to open at least one, but ideally three Shuckin’ Shack Oyster Bars over the next few years. The Shuckin’ Shack Oyster Bar may be one of the most affordable restaurant franchises available today, with generous rates of return.
