Shane's Rib Shack Among The Rising Stars - Established Brands Ready For The National Spotlight

Wednesday, July 02, 2014

Dishing up Southern-inspired barbecue, Shane's Rib Shack notched an AUV of $945,000 in 2013.

The family-oriented eatery, which made the Best Franchise Deals list in 2011, is bolstered by a proprietary smoking process and secret barbecue sauce recipe that allows the franchise to be portable, highly scalable, and adaptable to varied real estate, says cofounder Shane Thompson. He adds that Shane's fosters strong AUVs and franchisee profitability with hands-on marketing support, corporate training, and in-house purchasing and distribution.

"Our company focus is not how many locations we have, but successful units franchised and corporate owned," Thompson says.

That, of course, isn"�t to suggest Shane's is a static brand shunning growth. The Georgia-based concept is opening four additional corporate units in 2014, and Thompson foresees substantial runway for expansion and market development.

About Shane's Rib Shack Shane's Rib Shack is a true American rib shack, known for its slow-cooked ribs, hand-chopped chicken and pork, and many southern sides to complement each plate. The original shack was founded in 2002, in McDonough, Ga. by Shane Thompson, who started the restaurant with his grandfather's secret BBQ sauce. Since becoming a franchised restaurant in 2004, Shane's Rib Shack has grown to become the country's model fast-casual barbecue concept. In 2011, Shane's Rib Shack was recognized by Fast Casual Magazine's 2011 Top 100 Movers and Shakers, and in 2010, Shane's was recognized by "Inc. Magazine 5,000," as one of the fastest growing, private companies in America. Shane's Rib Shack currently operates 70 locations. For more information, visit SOURCE Shane's Rib Shack
