With 2020 now upon us, restaurants are waiting to react to the industry trends that will bubble to the surface in the New Year.

At Angry Crab Shack, we’re already ahead of the curve. Our fresh concept, flavors and restaurant design fall perfectly in line with industry experts’ trend predictions in 2020, keeping Angry Crab Shack franchise owners competitive in the booming seafood space.

1. Still Asking for Asian Flavors

The trend of food fusion is continuing in 2020, and the demand for Asian flavors is only growing.

Asian flavors are being used more and more to spice up traditional menu items, especially the various spices and sauces. With chefs experimenting with more ethnic flavors in the kitchen than ever before, the interest in Asian ingredients has expanded.

Most Angry Crab Shack guests come to us for what we’re known for: our Asian Cajun seafood boil. Our specialized, Asian-inspired spices have our guests coming back to Angry Crab Shack again and again. While our diverse menu offers an array of seafood and non-seafood alike, those trendy food fanatics will find our delicious Asian-Cajun flavors hard to ignore in 2020.

2. Memorable Restaurant Experiences

Restaurant owners are trying to make their restaurants memorable visits for their guests. Some do this with fresh, exciting food, and some do this with a unique atmosphere. Either way, experts predict that consumers’ demand for a dining experience when eating out will be crucial for restaurant owners to satisfy their guests in 2020.

At Angry Crab Shack, we deliver superior food and atmosphere at the same time.

Our fun dining concept features our guests digging into our mouth-watering seafood with their hands and a bib to the backdrop of a boisterous Louisiana-style seafood boil party. Our Mardi Gras decor and southern hospitality will surely give guests a meal they won’t soon forget.


3. Meals That Matter

In 2020, restaurants need to be more than a place to grab a bite to eat. They need to be a fixture of their community.

A trend largely spearheaded by the millennial generation, consumers want the businesses they support to be worthy of supporting. This means businesses using their influence to make a difference.

As an Angry Crab Shack franchise owner, you have the privilege of participating in our annual July fundraiser, You Dine, We Donate, which raises money for the Arizona Housing Coalition, an organization which supports our nation’s military veterans. Our commitment to this program, along with our relationship with Phoenix Children’s Hospital, has resulted in hundreds of thousands of dollars being raised to better our community.

At Angry Crab Shack, you can be proud to call yourself a franchise owner.
