It was only a few months ago we shared the news that our Durham, NC franchisee, Phil Yong, had received the permits to begin construction of his new restaurant space at 2200 W. Main Street - Suite A140 in the Erwin Square neighborhood. Last month we followed up an in-progress photo and blog update on that location. Now in September, things are clearly coming together for Phil and some of his staff members as they prepare to open their Shuckin' Shack Oyster Bar in October!
According to Shuckin' Shack CEO, Jonathan Weathington, the Durham franchisee has already completed preliminary training over the past few months and can expect our operations team to be on-site within the next few weeks to help train his new employees. According to Weathington, "most new Shuckin' Shacks employee just 10-15 full-time and part-time employees" - significantly less than similar sports pubs and seafood restaurant franchises, keeping staffing headaches and overhead low. We encourage any local residents or visitors to Durham, NC to join the 1,000 people already following their Facebook page to stay up-to-date on hiring opportunities and when to expect the official opening next month!
