Surf City, NC

Shuckin' Shack Oyster Bar opened in 2007 as a place for locals in Carolina Beach and is quickly becoming a place for EVERYONE across the Southeastern United States. Shuckin' Shack's success relies on five things:

  1. Manageable Size: 2,200-2,800 Square Feet means low monthly overhead

  2. One Page Menu: Keep inventory low and food waste to an extreme minimum

  3. Manageable Staff: A smaller number of employees on average creates a true team atmosphere

  4. Minimal Investment: Probably the most affordable restaurant franchise you'll consider

  5. Maximum Returns: An asset turnover ratio of more than double the industry average

We have 12 restaurants "Now Open" in the Southeast, including Greenville, SC and Summerville, SC, with new restaurants under development in Statesboro and Cumming, GA - and a second location for Greenville, SC. Visit any of our restaurants this weekend to get "The Shack" experience firsthand!
