Why Us

We’ve cracked the code on running a profitable restaurant franchise.

It starts with Angry Crab Shack’s unique seafood boil combined with bold Asian-Cajun flavors that are unique to the brand and irresistible to guests. Next are strategic real estate practices that minimize the cost of entry, reduce build-out costs and limit the time it takes to renovate.

Our Seafood is Flavorful and Priced Right.

We have long-standing relationships with trusted seafood vendors, which allows our Franchise Partners to eliminate the middleman and buy directly from the source. Our purchasing power means higher quality product, lower prices, and greater consistency. Angry Crab Shack has also established pricing programs through Sysco Foods. Franchise Partners can set prices in line with their local market with the help of the home office.

Technology is key to a successful restaurant’s operations in today’s competitive market.

Our company created a comprehensive package that covers the point of sales (POS), human resources, time and attendance, tip management, inventory, purchasing, quality control, checklist management, and state of the art PCI-compliant and EMV-certified payment processing.

When choosing Angry Crab Shack restaurant locations, our company takes a different approach. We minimize the initial cost of entry and monthly overhead, which allows us to open new restaurants faster than normal. We focus our search efforts on second and third generation restaurant locations that usually include functional kitchens and bars, properly sized utility and HVAC systems, fire suppression systems, and proper zoning. This allows us to reduce build-out costs by limiting our renovation to décor and signage while utilizing the existing equipment and utilities. Lower build-out costs and reduced renovation time, combined with a $3,109,010 Average Net Sales*, make up Angry Crab Shack’s proven formula for success.
