Basically no NATIONAL competition: Own the only Shuckin’ place in town like this! People want a unique place to gather and have drinks — no community needs another boring chicken joint or crab shack.

Be the go-to sports bar hangout (but hold the terrible food): 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. Have your community celebrate their hometown teams with an Oyster shooter!

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 sustainably sourced and freshest seafood available, whether they’re near the coast or not! 

Genuinely fun culture and great customer reviews: This is the most fun you can have as a Franchise Owner, and the customers love it too — with hundreds and hundreds of 5-star reviews on Yelp and Google, like this one: 

“I typically avoid chains because I feel that the “local” feel gets lost in the flurry of “flair” items and generic menus. Not so with this place! This place is born of the local feel of coastal North Carolina and the low country seafood boil tradition.”   - Alex D.
