Shane isn’t about flash, he’s about food. He’s about family, community and darn good food. So much so that he quit his highfalutin corporate job, dusted off Big Dad’s (Shane’s grandfather) secret recipe and enlisted his own family to make a dream come true.
And that’s how every Shane’s Rib Shack franchise is run: as a family, for families. OK, and for anyone else looking for some great BBQ. But it’s a family place, through and through.
Shane and Big Dad used to travel the country together visiting relatives and they spent lots of time talking. A frequent topic was living a happy life. Do what you love to do, do it better than anyone else.
Now, family is family. But like most people, at one time or another, they needed a break from the in-laws. So they found another way to be around without having to be around (if you know what we mean): BBQ. Countless hours creating, refining, perfecting.
Shane’s Rib Shack is about family, community and darn good food. We’re inventing the fast-casual BBQ segment by offering a family-style environment with a mouthwatering generations-old BBQ sauce recipe. Shane’s feeds consumers the freshest ribs, pork, and chicken in the industry, Shane's proves that BBQ isn't just a country thing, its mainstream America—and all that goes with it.
Unlike the "old school" BBQ joints that fire up their smokers only twice a week, satisfied to serve machine ground pork that might be 3 to 4 days old, Shane's serves fresh, clean pork. We smoke it overnight -- every night -- and hand chop it every morning so our customers enjoy the best tasting, freshest pork around. Everyone notices the difference that this commitment makes in taste.
The only person who can outdo Shane is Shane. He began franchising in late 2004 and each unit is more spectacular than the last. That's because each Shane's Rib Shack is part of the community, not just a member of it. People know we're coming long before we get there.
Our success doesn’t stop with Shane's.
