Wednesday, August 23, 2017

Only 8 short months after the leadership at Shell Shack made the decision to franchise, Jon Glaser, CFE and Director of Franchise Development announces the Houston, TX market is CLOSED. This brings the total units in 2017 he has signed under development agreements to 11.

Shell Shack, the Dallas-based seafood brand is expanding. Soon they will be coming to your city, spicing up your seafood bag with your favorite infused seasonings. The right time to join nation's next seafood sensation is now!

In October of 2013, in the heart of Uptown Dallas, Texas, Shell Shack made its first appearance. It was born to win the heart of seafood enthusiasts and foodies just loved it! Now with 4 thriving locations open in DFW and signing the 1st Franchise Agreement for 3 units in East Texas, Shell Shack is setting their sights on several surrounding states.

Jon Glaser says, "We are proud to announce our newest franchise group, Houston Shellfish Ventures, joining the Shell Shack Family. A diversified group of individuals, with a partnership consisting of some of the finest commercial real estate and development minds in Texas from The Retail Connection located in Dallas, TX.  Their site selection knowledge, paired with an experienced high volume multiunit veteran operator Larry Garrett, this group certainly has the making of success. They will be building quality teams from the ground up and will execute our brand each and every day providing each Shell Shack guest the level of experience that we expect and our guest deserves. We have no doubt that Houston Shellfish Ventures was the right choice to launch Shell Shack in the Houston, TX market. We look forward to their first site selection as the staple Shell Shack of the Houston market."

Dallas Hale, CEO added, "We are happy to have Houston Shellfish Ventures come on board. We are pleased to have such a great continued response to our franchise program, it's always nice for others to appreciate and share the same common belief that we have created something unique. It's not really as surprising as you would think that we have sold 2 franchise groups totaling 11 units in development in the past 7 months, Jon Glaser is very passionate about franchising Shell Shack and being part of our continued success."
