Overview

Shuckin' Shack - Franchise Information

WE’D RATHER ROOT FOR THE JETS
than franchise another crappy sports pub. 

What we have: 

  • The best SHUCKIN’ oysters and freshest seafood in the country
  • Average sales of $987,901*
  • An incredible place to watch sports
  • The most fun you can have as a Franchise Owner on Earth 

What we don’t have

  • Soggy nachos
  • Boring wings and greasy burgers
  • Real competition
  • The same lame decorations you see in every sports bar

(If you’re a Jets fan, that’s okay too. We’ll work our tails off to support you just the same. You’ve gone through enough already.) 

*Refer to 2021 Franchise Disclosure Document Item 19 – Table 23

WHY YOU SHOULD OPEN A SHUCKIN’ SHACK AND AVOID THE SPORTS PUB CLICHÉ

Basically no competition: Own the best oyster bar in town — and probably the ONLY one. Kind of like the Carolina Panthers* in the NFC South this year, we’ve got no real competition.

Be the go-to tailgating hangout (but hold the crappy food): Shack Tailgating is a real thing! Be the coolest place in your town to hang out, AND the best place for people to shuck around with their friends before, during or after the game. 

The freshest, best-tasting oysters in the country, hands-down: Our supply chain is so shuckin’ dialed-in that we can guarantee Owners are getting the freshest seafood available, whether they’re near the coast or not! 

On track for a record-breaking year: Unlike a lot of restaurants, we did not struggle to stay open last year. In fact, we’re on-pace for a record-breaking year in 2021** and our Owners have average unit sales of almost a MILLION dollars at $987,901! 

*The Shuckin’ Shack leadership team is Panthers fans. Your team loyalties, however misguided they might be, will not impact your ability to own a Shuckin’ Shack.

**Refer to 2021 Franchise Disclosure Document Item 19 – Tables 6, 7, 9, 10, 12

THE BEST SHUCKIN' OYSTERS IN THE COUNTRY, AND IT’S NOT EVEN CLOSE

Obviously it would be pretty shuckin’ dumb to open an oyster bar if you weren’t absolutely sure you were serving the best oysters available.

WHY THIS IS A SHUCKIN’ AMAZING OPPORTUNITY IN 2021 THAT YOU CAN’T PASS UP

  • 42% of consumers are swapping other types of meat for seafood in order to eat healthier.
  • 70% of all seafood purchased in the U.S. is in restaurants.

DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO JOIN THE TEAM? 

Why be just a part of the crew when you can be the captain? Here’s the kind of folks who succeed as a Shuckin’ Shack Owner: 

  • You’ve got management skills and know how to communicate your ideas to others. You also know a thing or two about the hospitality industry- this isn’t your first rodeo!
  • You care about your community and the people in it. You are able to connect with people in your neighborhood and have the drive and desire to make a difference in your corner of the world.
  • You’re not afraid to take risks and try new approaches and have an uncanny ability to think on your feet. (Bonus points if you’re one of the brave men and women who’ve served our country in the U.S. military- our heroes!)

 GET STARTED TODAY! 

There is a unique opportunity in 2021 that may not come around again. Make sure you can bring a Shuckin’ Shack to your town before someone else does! Imagine being in Chicago and letting a Packers fan open a Shuckin’ Shack before you do. 

With a record-breaking year in store for 2021, the amount of fun you can have as an Owner, and the feeling you get bringing the community together in a laid-back, fun, coastal atmosphere, opportunities are going fast. Don’t miss out!
