Multi-brand restaurant operators looking to complement their portfolios with a unique, fast-casual seafood dining concept are choosing Angry Crab Shack…claws down.

In a sea of burger and chicken restaurants, Angry Crab Shack is enormously popular in Arizona and moving full steam ahead as one of the leading full-service restaurants specializing in seafood with bold Asian-Cajun flavors. With high-quality ingredients at a great value for Asian-Cajun seafood fans, the brand continues to grow despite the challenges of COVID-19.

In-demand in any economy.

Angry Crab Shack has faced the new economic and situational realities head-on, strengthening Franchise Owner support and training, updating menu and packaging and expanding community support.

The easy-to-run and profitable-to-own restaurant franchise continues to grow during these unprecedented times, quickly refining operations to enhance the guest experience and ensure safe online, curbside pickup and delivery ordering options that keep loyal guests coming back for more.

“We pride ourselves on being able to adapt to any challenge thrown our way,” said Andy Diamond, President of Angry Crab Shack. “COVID-19 has impacted nearly every aspect of our business, and we’re committed to working around the clock to stay innovative and help every Franchise Owner succeed.” One of the more significant demonstrations of this commitment has been to waive franchise owner royalties since the beginning of the pandemic this past March, something the company expects to continue through at least the end of 2020.

Unique flavors, simplified operations.

Angry Crab Shack is no ordinary seafood restaurant franchise. The popular Arizona-based brand specializes in seafood and boils with bold Asian-Cajun flavors that are unique to the brand and irresistible to guests.

They source lobster from the East Coast, Dungeness Crab from the Pacific Northwest, King Crab from the Bering Strait, Snow Crab from Canadian waters and crawfish from the Gulf of Mexico. Long-standing relationships with trusted seafood vendors allow Franchise Owners to eliminate the middleman for purchasing power that promises a higher-quality product, affordable prices and greater consistency.

While the flavors of their seafood are bold and unique, their operations keep things simple and efficient. A streamlined kitchen, strong training programs, and a focus on innovation create a sound infrastructure Franchise Owners can rely on as they open and operate their Angry Crab Shack.

For seasoned entrepreneurs looking to diversify, Angry Crab Shack delivers an attractive investment opportunity in the full-service restaurant industry and a winning franchise blueprint for sustained success.
