Shane’s Rib Shack: A Fast Casual Restaurant You Can’t Miss

Fast casual dining is said to be the fastest growing dining trend in the market. Trends are showing that people want a casual dining environment, where they can receive the food they order quickly. Shane’s Rib Shack is an American fast casual BBQ franchise, serving slow-cooked baby back ribs, hand-chopped chicken and pork, and Southern style side dishes. The restaurant started outside of Atlanta in McDonough, Georgia in a tiny meeting. It is now the fastest growing BBQ restaurant concept in the nation.

“Shane” of Shane’s Rib Shack is Shane Thompson, the founder of the BBQ restaurant. He quit his neck-tie wearing corporate job, dusted off his grandfather’s secret sauce recipe and along with the support of his wife Stacey, made his dream of owning a family BBQ restaurant come true.

Shane’s Rib Shack is currently available for franchise. Here is what they have to say about the ideal franchisee candidate:

“Shane’s Rib Shack is all about having fun! We are looking for Franchise Owners who are outgoing and have Sales, Marketing and/or Management Experience,  and who are results oriented. We want a person who can build relationships, lead a team, and who has the motivation to excel! Restaurant experience is a plus but not required.”

Checkers Has What The People Want

What is the appeal of a fast food restaurant for consumers? In the famous “McDonaldization of Society” sociological analysis, which looks at the impact of social structural change on human interaction and identity, Ritzer claims that we as a society highly value efficiency, calculability, and predictability in our day to day lives. We want good food at low prices: prices that are calculable, and service that is predictable. Checkers Drive-in Restaurants, and its twin-sister brand, Rally’s Hamburgers offer just that.

The company is currently looking for expansion in many areas of the country. The Tampa, Florida-based Checkers Drive In-Restaurants Inc. plans to open 30 to 40 locations nationwide during the next year.  Checkers says the impetus for growth is sales. Last year, a given Checkers came in somewhere around $1 million in sales, while McDonald’s a much larger franchise, typically does about $1.7 million in annual sales at a typical location.

These locations are found all over the country, from big cities to small towns. Checkers says its target audience is customers between the ages of 20 and 36, so any town with a young population, say a college town, is especially targeted for growth by the company.
