The Angry Crab Shack franchise opportunity is a casual dining seafood concept that serves high quality ingredients at a great value in a fresh, fun, family-friendly atmosphere.

on running a profitable restaurant franchise.

It starts with strategic real estate practices that minimize the initial cost of entry and monthly overhead.

We focus our search efforts on second generation restaurant locations that usually include functional kitchens and bars, properly sized utility and HVAC systems, fire suppression systems and proper zoning.

This reduces build-out costs and limits the time it takes to renovate.

Food ordering and food prep is also streamlined to keep costs low.

We have long-standing relationships with trusted seafood vendors which allows our Franchise Owners to eliminate the middleman and buy directly from the source. Our purchasing power means higher quality product, lower prices, and greater consistency.

Our Asian Cajun flavor profile isn't just unique and delicious.

It’s designed to be prepared and served quickly, with the freshest seafood and sides cooked in boiling water then sauced and spiced in a boil bag.

A limited menu of popular fixin’s—like our famous Cajun Fries—round out our offerings.
