The Mesa, Arizona-based full-service Cajun seafood restaurant chain, which operates six corporate restaurants and one franchised location, is opening up franchise opportunities. Angry Crab Shack is looking for franchise partners in metropolitan cities across the southwestern United States.
“With Americans increasing their seafood intake every year, Angry Crab Shack is capitalizing on the growing trend of seafood boils to bring family and friends together for a memorable and unique dining experience,” the chain said in a press release.
The average unit volume per restaurant is more than USD 3 million (EUR 2.6 million), and the current locations are realizing “dramatic” year-to-year sales increases, according to the company.
“We truly pride ourselves on the originality and high-quality we serve our guests and are seeking franchise partners who are passionate about the restaurant and seafood industry as we elevate our brand to new heights," said Ron Lou, founder of Angry Crab Shack. “Our affordable price point allows guess of all kinds to visit, while our low operating costs keep franchise owners thriving."
Angry Crab Shack draws on Cajun and Asian flavors, along with a fun food presentation and a laid-back environment. The brand offers a variety of boils including, shrimp, crawfish, lobster, crab, and more.
The restaurant chain sources lobster from the U.S. East Coast, Dungeness crab from the Pacific Northwest, king and snow crab from Alaska, and crawfish from the Gulf of Mexico.
