Busting the Oysters During "R" Months Myth

As we observe Labor Day this weekend, and celebrate the unofficial end of Summer and the start of football season, some customers of "The Shack" ask us about oysters during the "R" months.

Ever since the first Shuckin' Shack Oyster Bar was founded in Carolina Beach, NC eleven years ago, we've been battling the
myth that people should only eat oysters during months that contain the letter "R".  While that means great business for our dozen restaurants over the next several months, we want to put an end to this theory.   This myths, at least for those of us living here in the good ol' United States, with commercial oyster raising standards and harvesting conditions, have zero basis in fact. 

If you plan on traveling to Europe during the Spring or Summer of 2019, you might want to think twice, but we're happy to report and more than pleased to prove that
oysters you get during the Summer months are equally good as those you can enjoy during the fall and winter months to come!  For a current list of all 12 Shuckin' Shack Oyster Bars currently operating in the Southeast, please visit our consumer website by clicking here!

While several new Shuckin' Shack Oyster Bars coming to South Carolina in 2019, we are still searching for a strong franchise partner for the Columbia market.  If you, or someone you know, is considering restaurant franchise opportunities for the new year, please Share this special video link and have them request our free franchise brochure!

Believe it or not, within the United States, fresh oysters are just as great in May, June and July as they are in September, October or November!
